Genghis Khan

Happiness lies in conquering one's enemies, in driving them in front of oneself, in taking their property, in savoring their despair, in outraging their wives and daughters.
Quoted in Witold Rodzinski's The Walled Kingdom: A History of China (1979).  I guess it all depends on your point of view -- one man's meat is another man's poison, and one man's bad romance is another man's good romance.
