from Conan, the Barbarian,
Mongol General: Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life?
Mongol: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.
[I'm thinking, mmm... meh.]
Mongol General: Wrong! [oooh, thank you for rebuking him.] Conan! What is best in life?
Conan: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.
Mongol General: That is good! That is good.
To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.
Cool. But it's only cool in movies. In real life, nobody's going to say cool when your village has just been pillaged and burned down.
You can crush your enemies and hear the lamentation of their women, Conan, but as for me, best in life is this: To know, to love, and to serve the Lord Jesus Christ.
