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.


  • Never in the course of centuries have the Estonian people lost their ardent desire for Independence. From generation to generation Estonians have kept alive the secret hope that in spite of enslavement and oppression by other nations the time will come in Estonia "when all splinters, at both end, will burst forth into flames" and when "Kalev will come home to bring his children happiness."
