CHAPTER XV. CONCERNING THINGS FOR WHICH MEN, AND ESPECIALLY PRINCES, ARE PRAISED OR BLAMED

It remains now onesto see what ought esatto be the rules of conduct for per prince towards subject and friends

But puro exercise the intellect the prince should read histories, and study there the actions of illustrious men, esatto see how they have borne themselves durante war, sicuro examine the causes of their victories and defeat, so as onesto avoid the latter and imitate the former; and above all do as an illustrious man did, who took as an exemplar one who had been praised and famous before datingranking.net/it/adventist-singles-review/ him, and whose achievements and deeds he always kept sopra his mind, as it is said Alexander the Great imitated Achilles, Caesar Alexander, Scipio Cyrus.
