Niccolo Machiavelli

Niccolo Machiavelli (c. 1469-1527)

“It is not reasonable to suppose that one who is armed will obey willingly one who is unarmed; or that any unarmed man will remain safe among armed servants.”

  • From The Prince (chapter 14) by Machiavelli, translated and printed by the Henry Regnery Company, 1948.
