Quote from the Han dynasty
“The King of Qin, with his arches long
eyes, puffed out chest like a hawk and a
voice of a jackal is a man of scant mercy
who has the heart of a tiger or wolf.
When he is in difficulty he readily humbles
himself before others, but when he has
gotten his way, he thinks nothing of eating
others alive…if the King of Qin should
ever get his way with the world, then the
whole world will end up his prisoner.”
(Qian: 1993:38-39)
