My dogs were in hot pursuit of a white rabbit when, all of a sudden, the rabbit turned around and leapt into my arms. “Why, bunny,” I said, “As you have come to me for protection, I will see that nobody hurts you.”

That is my philosophy and it is why my people call me The Good King.

The Good King in Prince Darling, Blue Fairy Book. Painting by Gustav Klimt, “Study of an Old Man with Ivy Wreath.”
