There's a well-known piece of literature that I was thinking about that has some quotes which made me think of the Eldar. The book describes a "Prince With A Thousand Enemies" and, in doing so, the prince is warned:
"If they catch you, they will kill you... but first, they have to catch you."
Anyone know where this quote is from? Don't be cheap and look it up on Google... try your memory, o readers of great literature!
