Word

"Let a man, old, sick, stupid, tired, cynical, wise, even dangerous to the future of his country, be told that his country needs him and him alone, and he will respond even though he must be carried to the rostrum on a stretcher and take the oath and Extreme Unction simultaneously."

-- From "The Short Reign of Pippin IV" by John Steinbeck, The Viking Press, New York, 1957, pg. 53.
