— the emperor

L’Empereur, the emperor

I face to the right. My armor, my shield defend the cause of the right. I have the authority and the power; my scepter protects the just, the use of reason over human weaknesses, and stability against chaos. Don’t tell me my duty or question my judgments. You see things from your own small viewpoint, but my view is as large as the world. Things that grieve you are neither good nor bad, neither wrong nor right, unless I say so.
