collective-history:

Triệu Thị Trinh (225–248), also known as Lady Trieu, was a female warrior in 3rd century Vietnam who managed, for a time, to successfully resist the Chinese state of Eastern Wu during its occupation of Vietnam. She is quoted as saying, “I’d like to ride storms, kill sharks in the open sea, drive out the aggressors, reconquer the country, undo the ties of serfdom, and never bend my back to be the concubine of whatever man.”

Great translation, but she said “cá kình” - which is whale, not shark.
