It might be attributed to him but I remember seeing the original quote as an unknown. I'll let it slide thought, just to move things a long.

""I would rather be tied to the soil as another man's serf, even a poor man's, who hadn't much to live on himself, than be King of all these the dead and destroyed" is the dead Achilles, addressing Odysseus in the underworld in the Odyssey.

"You dress like a cad. You act like a cad. You are a cad. Get out!"
