Anonymous asked: Have you read The Prince? What's your take on it?
I am the fuckin prince.
"Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires."
— The Prince, Niccolo Machiavelli, 1469-1527 (via crushyourenemy)
"When you show yourself to the world and display your talents, you naturally stir all kinds of resentment, envy, and other manifestations of insecurity… you cannot spend your life worrying about the petty feelings of others."
— Robert Greene, The 48 Laws of Power (via 13-22-13)
