By Niccolo Machiavelli
(Italian courtier, author of a famous treatise on statecraft; 14691527)
|A PRINCE has to have particular care that, to see and to hear him, he appears all goodness, integrity, humanity and religion, which last he ought to pretend to more than ordinarily. For everybody sees, but few understand; everybody sees how you appear, but few know what in reality you are, and those few dare not oppose the opinion of the multitude, who have the majesty of their prince to defend them.|| 1|
