“A king cannot be called a king unless he is bountiful and just, a good and generous ruler, who treats his subjects well, maintaining the laws and customs with which they are familiar. He should establish justice among them, avoiding bloodshed and protecting them from harm. He should be marked out by his constant attention to the poor; he should aid both high and low alike, giving them their rightful dues, so that they may call down blessings upon him and obey his commands. There can be no doubt that a king like this will be beloved by his subjects.” – The Arabian Nights (trans. Lyons, et al.)
