Go, write it in a martial hand. Be curst and brief. It is no matter how witty, so it be eloquent, and full of invention. Taunt him with the license of ink.
– William Shakespeare
Twelfth Night, Act 3, Scene 2. Sir Toby advises Sir Andrew on how to write a letter to Cesario (Viola) challenging him to fight. He urges him to taunt his enemy.
