I wish beyond words this was one of mine, but it’s not. I read it today, but it was told without a source, and I wanted to record it here so I can easily find it again later:

“I’ll never understand,” the captain said at last, puffing out his chest full of medals, “why a man would fight for money when he could fight for honor as I do.”

“That’s easy, mate,” the pirate replied with a grin. “We all fight for what we lack, now don’t we?”
