FRANCESO GUICCIARDINI
Italian historian and dramatist
(1483 - 1540)

He is less likely to be mistaken who looks forward to a change in the affairs of the world than he who regards them as firm and stable.
      - [Change]

He who imitates what is evil always goes beyond the example that is set; on the contrary, he who imitates what is good always falls short.
  [It., L'imitazione del male supera sempre l'esempio; comme per il contrario, l'imitazione del bene e sempre inferiore.]
      - Storia d' Italia [Imitation]

Ambassadors are the eye and ear of states.
  [It., Gli ambasciadori sono l'occhio e l'orecchio degli stati.]
      - Storia d'Italia [Statesmanship]

Experience has always shown, and reason also, that affairs which depend on many seldom succeed.
  [It., Ha sempre dimostrato l'esperienza, e lo dimostra la ragione, che mai succedono bene le cose che dipendono da molti.]
      - Storia d'Italia [Success]

There is no evil in human affairs that has not some good mingled with it.
  [It., Non e male alcuno nelle cose umane che non abbia congiunto seco qualche bene.]
      - Storia d'Italia [Evil]

We fight to great disadvantage when we fight with those who have nothing to lose.
  [It., Con disavvantaggio grande si fa la guerra con chi non ha che perdere.]
      - Storia d'Italia [War]
