ROBERT E. HOWARD – QUOTE OF THE DAY!
From The Scarlet Citadel:
"You sit on satin and guzzle wine the people sweat for, and talk of divine rights of sovereignty — bah! I climbed out of the abyss of naked barbarism to the throne and in that climb I spilt my blood as freely as I spilt that of others. If either of us has the right to rule men, by Crom, it is I!"
The Scarlet Citadel was the second Conan story to be printed by Weird Tales magazine (circa 1933) and involves an older, wiser Conan as king of Aquilonia.
