From Count Andreas Petofi: Exceeding the Grasp, an autobiographical gift of letters, lore, and lyrics.  Volume XXIII

Having been the victim of several attacks by them in my green days as an au pair, I can state with some authority that Aristede stabs like a little girl.  Had I thrown the blade, I would have pierced my own skull!  Gladly.  But Aristede is a lover of beauty, and leaving my visage intact to be wept for and celebrated in repose?  He saw that it was the only rational choice.  His inept method of attempted assassination was chosen with an eye toward posterity.  It was a rare moment of wisdom for the insidious imp, and for that, I thank him.
