History Quotes


Phillip II of Macedon to Sparta: “You are encouraged to submit immediately, for on the off chance that I bring my armed force into your territory, I will obliterate your ranches, kill your kin, and annihilate your city.”

Sparta: “If.”

To me that is a reaction that just overflows the basic badassery that Sparta was known for. Additionally its significant that neither Phillip or Alexander chose to truly screw around with Sparta after that.
