El-ahrairah, your people cannot rule the world,
for I will not have it so.
All the world will be your enemy,
Prince with a Thousand Enemies,
and whenever they catch you, they will kill you.
But first they must catch you, digger, listener, runner,
prince with the swift warning. Be cunning and full of tricks
and your people shall never be destroyed.
(Richard Adams, Watership Down)
