“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”

― George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

“It is not the responsibility of knights errant to discover whether the afflicted, the enchained and the oppressed whom they encounter on the road are reduced to these circumstances and suffer this distress for their vices, or for their virtues: the knight’s sole responsibility is to succour them as people in need, having eyes only for their sufferings, not for their misdeeds.” 

― Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

Ezpata dantza (”sword dance”) is one of the oldest traditional dances in Euskal Herria, being records of it in the 17th century but thought to be more ancient.

There are two types of dancers: the ones with long swords, and the ones with shorter ones - called azkendariak - that wield them using white handkerchieves. It’s one of the most spectacular Basque folk dances.
