Yay!  Someone else appreciates Kai Lung!  A superb source of cod-Oriental wise sayings.  My second favourite line, which I repeat to myself when I need focus:  "But however enticing it may be to wander unchecked among a garden of bright images, are we not enticing your mind away from another topic of almost equal importance?"

Oh better far to live and die under the brave black flag I fly,
Than play a sanctimonious part with a pirate head and a pirate heart.
