"If the king doesn't lead, how can he expect his subordinates to follow?"
— Lelouch, Code Geass
"For this is what it means to be king: to be first in every desperate attack and last in every desperate retreat, and when there's hunger in the land (as must be now and then in bad years) to wear finer clothes and laugh louder over a scantier meal than any man in your land."
— King Lune of Archenland, The Horse and His Boy
"You may have made it impossible for Shining Armor to perform his spell, but now that you have so foolishly revealed your true self, I can protect my subjects from you!"
— Princess Celestia, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, "A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2"
