Estonians don't do "in a cold panic". Phlegmatic, slow, non-reactive, yes. Panic, no. ~ Toomas Hendrik Ilves

Estonians are a Finnic ethnic group native to Estonia who speak the Estonian language.


  • In the course of centuries never have the Estonian people lost their desire for independence. From generation to generation have they kept alive the hidden hope that in spite of enslavement and oppression by hostile invaders the time will come to Estonia "when all splints, at both end, will burst forth into flames" and when "Kalev will come home to bring his children happiness."
