    Greece is a sort of American vassal; the Netherlands is the country of American bases that grow like tulip bulbs; Cuba is the main sugar plantation of the American monopolies; Turkey is prepared to kow-tow before any United States pro-consul and Canada is the boring second fiddle in the American symphony.
    Andrei Andreyevich Gromyko (1909–1989)

    No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be:
    Am an attendant lord, one that will do
    To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
    Advise the prince.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    I shall not cease to bless because
    I lay about me with the taws
    That night and morning I may thrash
    Greek Alexander from my flesh,
    Augustus Caesar, and after these
    That great rogue Alcibiades.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
