In the next months, there were several diplomatic exchanges, which culminated in Darius' offer of all countries west of the Euphrates to Alexander.

"I would accept it," said Parmenion after reading the proposal, "if I were Alexander."

"So would I," replied Alexander, "if I were Parmenion."

Tito to Stalin:

Stop sending people to kill me. I have already captured five of them, one with a bomb and another with a rifle...
If you don't stop sending killers, I'll send one to Moscow,

And I won't have to send another.
