Famous quotes containing the words prince of and/or prince:

    Milton’s the prince of poets—so we say;
    A little heavy, but no less divine:
    An independent being in his day—
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    A prince must be prudent enough to know how to escape the bad reputation of those vices that would lose the state for him, and must protect himself from those that will not lose it for him, if this is possible; but if he cannot, he need not concern himself unduly if he ignores these less serious vices.
    Niccolò Machiavelli (1469–1527)
