machiavelli quotes (1)

Everyone sees what you appear to be, few experience what you really are. — Niccolò Machiavelli

The offenses one does to a man should be such that one does not fear revenge for it.— Niccolò Machiavelli

 

machiavelli quotes (5)

A prince must imitate the fox and the lion, for the lion cannot protect himself from traps, and the fox cannot defend himself from wolves. One must therefore be a fox to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten wolves. Those that wish to be only lions do not understand this. Therefore, a prudent ruler ought not to keep faith when by so doing it would be against his interest, and when the reasons which made him bind himself no longer exist. If men were all good, this precept would not be a good one; but as they are bad, and would not observe their faith with you, so you are not bound to keep faith with them.— Niccolò Machiavelli

machiavelli quotes (7)

A wise ruler ought never to keep faith when by doing so it would be against his interests.— Niccolò Machiavelli

One who deceives will always find those who allow themselves to be deceived. – Niccolo Machiavelli
