"He taught him horsemanship, archery and how to wield lasso, rein and stirrup, and what and when and how, the rites of of convivial society, of formal ceremony and the symposium; hawking, falconry and how to hunt with the cheetah; what was justice or the lack of it; what the throne and the crown meant; how to deliver orations and how to go to war and lead an army."
