They are choleric and impatient, wrote Julius Caesar in Commentarii de Bello Gallico about the Gallic Wars. They were obsessed by war, loved fighting and adventure, as well as life and feasting. They enjoyed the present moment, hazardously and passionately, they were cheerful and carefree.
They gasped for fame, glorified their heroic acts, on the one hand they were brave and risked their lives, on the other, they were naive and pathetically sentimental.
They are inconsistent and long for innovation, but they are ingenious and creative, wrote Caesar.
Elegant. And courteous. Their women were courageous and loyal.
