This is my favorite quote period! I love its wit and arrogance but the elegant part was that he said it with the utmost integrity so it become so utterly paradoxical that you cannot argue its right or wrongness of the one who said it or how they meant it to be taken~ is it a threat or a fact? Is he arrogant or humble when he says this? Is he trying to scare or educate the person he is saying it to? This is what makes it philosophical and how it becomes one of the greatest things ever said!
