Highbrow Advice from Xenophon

Xenophon instructs his captains to encourage the Greek soldiers, now lost in Persia:
But there will be a great rise in their spirits if one can change the way they think, so that instead of having in their heads the one idea of "what is going to happen to me?" they may think "what action am I going to take?"
