The Sword And The Horn

A man stumbled upon a cave entrance and entered to investigate.
To his surprise and dismay, it opened into a large and splendid chamber, whose walls were adorned with the armor of ancient knights. In the center of a round table in the middle of the chamber sat a sword and a horn, and a Voice from Above intoned CHOOSE! as this test would prove whether he was worthy to lead the knights in battle. He reached forth, took the horn and blew a long loud blast, whereupon the chamber went dark and he found himself thrust out into everyday life...these words sounding after him on the wind:
Cursed be the coward, ever who was born; who never drew the sword, before he blew the horn!
