Publisher's Summary

The Prince is the most famous of Machiavelli's works; it gives very clear, precise and realistic instructions on how to gain and maintain power, fortune, and glory, sometimes at the expense of others. Written in 1513, it is one of the most feared and hated political treatises, taken to be the first work in which the effect the leader desires to achieve is taken as more important than any abstract ideal or ethical value that might prevent him from taking immoral action.

We have selected for you 100 of the best quotes from The Prince, trusting that you will be able to use their efficiency and cleverness to direct your own affairs in a powerful way without falling into a moral trap.
