— Steve Irwin

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile -- hoping it will eat him last.
Winston Churchill crocodiles quote

If you live in the river you should make friends with the crocodile.
— Proverbs

I have no fear of losing my life - if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it.
— Steve Irwin

To sit back hoping that someday, some way, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last -- but eat you he will.
— Ronald Reagan
