"Well, I don't want any easy jobs of that sort," porus said.

porus grasped the handle of his dagger and looked menacingly at the farmer.
When porus was taken prisoner, and Alexander asked him how he expected to be used, he answered, "As a king."

The question so puzzled him that he finally took porus into his confidence, having a high idea of his good sense.
porus was an Indian king who was defeated and put to death by Alexander the Great.
