Quotes: Elegant Weapon for a More Civilized Age
Speak softly, and carry a big stick.
Proverb, attributed to Theodore Roosevelt

[Breaking a rifle over his knee] This loud, clumsy, stupid thing. This is the weapon of the enemy. We do not need it. We will not use it. Our weapons are quiet, precise. In time, I will teach them to you.

It's an elegant weapon from a more civilized age.
Luke Smith on the Spartan Laser
