Quote from "the procrastinator"
 "swagger may seem like a modern word but in A Midsummer Nights Dream Shakespeare uses the word swaggering (what hempen home-spuns have we here / so near the cradle of the fairy queen?) Un-quote

Just thought that might be a little interesting. I mean Deryn has swagger and if you all are like me in that you like to know where words come from you might too  :)

I always wondered where the word "swag" came from...
