i’ll drown more sailors than the mermaid shall;
i’ll slay more gazers than the basilisk;
i’ll play the orator as well as nestor,
deceive more slyly than ulysses could,
and, like a sinon, take another troy.
i can add colours to the chameleon,
change shapes with proteus for advantages,
and set the murderous machiavel to school.
can i do this, and cannot get a crown?
tut, were it farther off, i’ll pluck it down.

If I left, I would never hear from you again. Don’t you think that’s sad?
I’m not gonna try to change who I am to be more like what people think.
- Still such a fucking Viking, even after all these years.
