Neal Stephenson Quotes: Listen To Me I Did Not Wish To Be

Listen To Me. I Did Not Wish To Be Summoned By Your Princess. Summoned, I Did Not Wish To Come. But Having Been Summoned, And Having Come, I Mean To Give A Good Account Of Myself. That's How I Was Taught By My Father, And The Men Of His Age Who Slew Kings And Swept Away Not Merely Governments But Whole Systems Of Thought, Like Khans Of The Mind. I Would Have My Son In Boston Know Of My Doings, And Be Proud Of Them, And Carry My Ways Forward To Another Generation On Another Continent. Any Opponent Who Does Not Know This About Me, Stands At A Grave Disadvantage; A Disadvantage I Am Not Above Profiting From.
