n. One who is physically and morally strong. One who steadfastly supports an organization or cause: party stalwarts.
"Assaults of adversity do not affect the spirit of a stalwart man. He maintains his poise and assimilates all that falls to his lot to his own complexion, for he is more potent than the external world. I do not maintain that he is insensible to externals, but that he overcomes them. Unperturbed and serene, he rises to meet every obstacle. All adversity he regards as exercise."
Seneca, On Providence
Stalworth, st[ae]lwyr[eth]: probably originally, worth stealing or taking, and afterwards extended to other causes of estimation. See Steal, Worth.
