On Strength

If there is anything that I will impress upon my children, it will be the value of strength. Of course, they will be well-educated and morally instructed (for, in my opinion, those are kinds of strength); however, what I am referring to here is pure, unadulterated physical ability.

Run faster, jump higher, hit harder, lift more and do more for longer.

Without strength, the virtues of mercy and kindness and forgiveness are merely wishes. If no man or woman is strong enough to stand and defend those ideals, they will pass away at the hand of someone who wields his might to conquer and destroy.

If you lack the strength, there are those who will take that as an invitation to make theirs whatever it is you hold dear, be it territory, possession, or even your loved ones.

Frieza doesn't want to hear about "being reasonable."
