"'An old poem, Lieutenant,' said Harriman, unable to tear his gaze away from the far-off ruins. 'A man traveling in the desert discovers the broken remains of a statue. And there's an inscription that reads, 'I am Ozymandias, king of kings. Behold my works, ye mighty, and despair.' The point of the poem was the transitory nature of man's accomplishments. Here was this great and powerful 'king of 'kings,' who apparently had ruled a vast empire . . . and there was nothing left of him or anything that he had done except a ruined statue. The rest o fit had been lost to time.' "
