What is Best in Life?
That is good! That is good.
While the open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair are wonderful, they are not what is best in life. Here's a big hint: If women aren't lamenting, you're doing it wrong.
Mongol General: Conan! What is best in life?
Conan: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.
Mongol General: That is good! That is good.
Ask the average person on the street to tell you what is best in life and you'll probably get cop-out answers like health, family, the open steppe, a good career (or these days, job security!), a fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, puppies, kittens, packages wrapped up in strings, and the series of tubes called the Internet. Also, the wind in your hair is pretty nice. While all these things are fine and good, they definitely are the WRONG answer to the question. Thank goodness Conan knows the right answer.
