If I never learnt nothing else out of pap, I learnt that the best way to get along with his kind of people is to let them have their own way.

– Mark Twain

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 19. Huck feels the best way to deal with the Duke and King con duo, types like his old Pap Finn, is to just go along with them and let them get their way.
