The frustrations of ruling a kingdom

| 0 comments

Back down on the plains, if you kicked people they kicked back. Up here, when you kicked people they moved away and just waited patiently for your leg to fall off. How could a king go down in history ruling a people like that? You couldn’t oppress them any more than you could oppress a mattress.

From Wyrd Sisters, by Terry Pratchett
