    The Riddle of Steel

     

    From the 1982 movie Conan the Barbarian:

     

    After Conan seeks out the group that murdered his people, Thulsa Doom explains to him, "Steel isn't strong, boy. Flesh is stronger. Look around you." Thulsa motions to some of the thousands of followers surrounding his mountain who worship him as the mouthpiece of God. He points up to the top of a cliff, "There, on the rocks, that beautiful girl." He motions to the girl, "Come to me, my child." The girl steps off the cliff and falls to her death. "That is strength, boy. That is power: the strength and power of flesh. What is steel compared to the hand that wields it?"

     

    What is steel compared to the hand that wields it? What is a gun compared to the person who shoots it?
