Conan's famous response to the question
"What is best in life?"
"To crush your enemies,
see them driven before you
and to hear the lamentations of their women."
This is actually a paraphrase of a quote
attributed to Genghis Khan:
"The greatest pleasure is to vanquish your enemies
and chase them before you,
to rob them of their wealth
and see those dear to them bathed in tears,
to ride their horses
and clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters."
"It'll do the boy some good to get some senseless violence in his life!"
The title of this entry is the translation of the runes on the sword created by Conan's father in the "Anvil of Crom," the title sequence of Conan the Barbarian.
Suffer no guilt, ye who wield this in the name of Crom.
