I like Machiavelli.edwink.gif

He takes ‘pragmatism’ to a whole new level. He says what half of us think but would never dream of saying. He also has a queer, matter of fact way of laying it out to you, which makes its all the more amusing. Sample this-

“…you can be more liberal with what does not belong to you or your subjects…”

“Giving away what belongs to strangers in no way affects your standing at home…”

 “You must understand that there are two ways of fighting: by law or by force. The first way is natural to men, and the second to beasts. But as the first way often proves inadequate one must needs have recourse to the second. So a prince must understand how to make a nice use of the beast and the man.”

 “…If all men were good, this precept would not be good; but because men are wretched creatures who would not keep their word to you, you need not keep your word to them.” Lol!

“…the deceiver will always find someone ready to be deceived.”  lol.gif
