NICCOLÒ MACHIAVELLI

A natural Prince with a long hereditary line is less likely to give offense; he is more likely to be appreciated; and if he is not given to vices that make him hated, it is pretty usual for him to be held in his subjects' affections.

Tradition and custom of rule dim the memory and the causes of the original rise to power.

“An idea is something that won’t work unless you do.” - Thomas A. Edison

Those who have read Machiavelli in depth have positive opinions; those who have not read his works have negative opinions. When he suggests guiding principles for a Prince concerning his land and people, the principles are not anchored in Machiavelli, the man, but in Machiavelli, the scientist. Because those principles are revealed through his science, we should judge him by the science he’s discovered and not by the truths discovered through that science, because too often those truths are not to our liking.
