small injuries, but cannot do so for great ones; the injury therefore that we do to a man must be such that we need not fear his vengeance.” (p. 16) “In this matter the situation is the same as physicians report concerning hectic fever: in the beginning the disease is easy to cure but hard to diagnose; with the passage of time, having gone unrecognized and unmediated, it becomes easy to diagnose but hard to cure. So it is with a state: when ills are recognized in advance (and only the prudent can do this), they are quickly cured. But when, having gone unrecognized, they are allowed to increase until everyone may recognize them, then remedy is no longer possible. (p. 18) “Further, the ruler of a foreign province as described should make himself the leader and defender of his less powerful neighbors, and endeavor to weaken the strong ones…” “a prudent man should always follow in the path trodden in the path by great men…” (p. 25) “Whence it is to be noted, that in taking a state the conqueror must arrange to commit all his cruelties at once, so as to not to have to recur to them every day. And so as to be able, by not making fresh changes, to reassure people and win them over by benefiting them.” (p. 38)

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
