Illustration from first edition of
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
The pitifulest thing out is a mob; that's what an army is--a mob; they
don't fight with courage that's born in them, but with courage that's
borrowed from their mass, and from their officers. But a mob without any
man at the head of it, is beneath pitifulness.
