"And yet so sensible were the Romans of the imperfection of valour without skill and practice, that, in their language, the name of an army was borrowed from the word which signified exercise".

Edward Gibbon, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (1788)

[Wordsworth Classics of World Literature, Ch 1, p. 16]
