'''Prowl:''' Depends on the circumstances. I mean, I'd rather have ''somebody else'' somebody like Optimus do it. So I guess it worked out like I wanted... which is my specialty.

->''"Siamese fighting fish fascinating creatures. [[FearlessFool Brave, but on the whole, stupid.]] Yes, they're stupid. Except for the occasional one, such as we have here, who lets the other two fight. While he waits. [[VictoryByEndurance Waits, until the survivor is so exhausted that he cannot defend himself, and then like SPECTRE... he strikes!]]"''

->''"The Patrician disliked the word "dictator." It affronted him. He never told anyone what to do. He didn't have to, that was the wonderful part. A large part of his life consisted of arranging matters so that this state of affairs continued [...] Human nature, the Patrician always said, was a marvelous thing. Once you understood where its levers were."''

->''"Fancy what a game of chess would be if all the chessmen had passions and intellects, more or less small and cunning; if you were not only uncertain about your adversary's men, but a little uncertain also about your own; if your knight could shuffle himself on to a new square by the sly; if your bishop, at your castling, could wheedle your pawns out of their places; and if your pawns, hating you because they are pawns, could make away from their appointed posts that you might get checkmate on a sudden. You might be the longest-headed of deductive reasoners, and yet you might be beaten by your own pawns. You would be especially likely to be beaten, if you depended arrogantly on your mathematical imagination, and regarded your passionate pieces with contempt. Yet this imaginary chess is easy compared with the game a man has to play against his fellow-men with other fellow-men for his instruments."''
-->-- ''Felix Holt'', by '''George Eliot'''
