Quote of the month: On leadership

“Those who become princes by mere luck achieve this without any particular effort; however they will have a hard time remaining on their throne.”

(Nicolo Machiavelli, Renaissance state philosopher in “The Prince”)

“Diejenigen, welche durch bloßes Glück Fürsten werden, gelangen dazu ohne sonderliche Mühe; sich aber auf dem Thron zu halten wird ihnen schwer.”

(Nicolo Machiavelli, Staatsphilosoph der Renaissance, in “Der Fürst”)
