Nicolo Machiavelli was thought at the school of Florence during the Renaissance in Italy. He is one of the main founders of modern political science.
He was a diplomat and a political philosopher he was a dear civil servant of the Florentine Republic.
Machiavelli is most famous for a short political treatise, The Prince, written in 1513, but not published until 1532, five years after Machiavelli's death.
In June of 1498, after the ouster and execution of Girolamo Savonarola, the Great Council elected Machiavelli as Secretary to the Second Chancery of the Republic of Florence.
Since the sixteenth century, generations of politicians remain attracted and repelled by the cynical approach to power posited in The Prince and his other works
Although he privately circulated The Prince among friends, the only work he published in his lifetime was The Art of War, about high-military science.
Famous quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli:
“When you disarm the people, you commence to offend them and show that you distrust them either through cowardice or lack of confidence, and both of these opinions generate hatred.”
“It is a double pleasure to deceive the deceiver.”
“It is better to be feared than loved if you can not be both” – Niccolo Machiavelli
“Few know me, Opportunity am I.The reason that I never can be stillIs because on a wheel my foot does lie;Unto my course no flight but matches ill,Because, all are so dazzled as I run,Wings on my feet I have maintained; I spillMy tresses forward that they flow as spunVeil covering over face and bosom, soIn passing I be recognized by none;
