A strong proponent of the principle that the natives need a strong hand.

I believe he was talking about the Greeks. :p

Gotta admire anyone who can have a scotch with breakfast and still function.
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

Now there was a man who knew how to write a derogatory tweet.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
