Deciding to post quotes that I have saved in my phone over the past several years. I will include a date and time and location, if I can recall. I will also give credit to the author and the work the quote is derived from, if applicable.
"This is the way things are: whenever one tries to escape one danger one runs into another. Prudence consists in being able to assess the nature of a particular threat and in accepting the lesser evil." -- Niccolo Machiavelli, The Prince
June 3, 2014. 12:33 AM. Tuesday night. I had just finished my sophomore year of college a few weeks prior and was attempting to read The Prince.
