Niccolò Machiavelli

"How praiseworthy it is for a prince to keep his word and live with integrity rather than by craftiness, everyone understands; yet we see from recent experience that those princes have accomplished most who paid little heed to keeping their promises, but who knew how to manipulate the minds of men craftily. In the end, they won out over those who tried to act honestly."

Niccolò Machiavelli

3rd May 1469-21st June 1527

Things don't change much, do they ?
