-->On one occasion it was reported to him that a man had been stealing from his store of winter's firewood, and he was urged to punish him. "I will soon put a stop to that bad practice," said the governor sternly. He sent for the offender. "You have a large family," he said to the offending culprit, "and I have a large magazine of wood; come as often as you please, and take as much of it as you need to make your dwelling comfortable." Then turning to his accusers, he said: "Now I defy him to steal any more of my firewood."

-->'''Johnny Lee Clary''': So we got a bunch of us together, and about 30 of us went in there and surrounded him, and he had this chicken there on the table, at the restaurant. And I walked up to him and I said "Boy, this restaurants for white people only, we don't want you here." I said "So I'm gonna make you a promise. I promise you that we're gonna do the same thing to you that you do to that chicken. So you think real hard before you touch that chicken." So he looked at me and looked at the Klan, then he picked up the chicken and he kissed it.

* ''Film/InABetterWorld'': DiscussedTrope. Claus advises doing this, talking about the futility of the CycleOfRevenge, saying "where does it end?" Anton does this literally, going back to the mechanic who hit him in the park, allowing the mechanic to slap him twice more in the face, and telling the kids that the mechanic is nothing more than a bullying creep. It backfires with Christian, who perceives his friend's father as weak.
