The poetry is by Al Motannabbi who says:
Before merit can be given to physical courage, there is the first and foremost which is the courage of opinion. Therefore, if these two elements are present in a person you probably have a perfect human being. Nevertheless, we have to know what the difference is between the thoughtless beast and the considerate human. It is the intellect; it is the logic as, without that, the least of beasts can uproot the human race altogether if not for their reasons.
