Madness or Sanity?

The life of man upon earth

is warfare.

Job 7:1


I weigh not men and therefore not men’s words.

Admired I am of those that hate me most though some speak openly against my books,

yet they read me and thereby attain Peter‘s chair and when they cast me off, are

poisoned by my climbing followers.

I count religion but a foolish toy and hold that there is no sin but ignorance.

Many will talk of title to a crown: what right had Caesar to the Empery.

Might first made Kings, and laws were then most sure.

When like the Draco‘s, they were writ in blood.

Niccolo Machiavelli
