Picture the prince, such as most of them are today: a man ignorant of the law, well-nigh an enemy to his people's advantage, while intent on his personal convenience, a dedicated voluptuary, a hater of learning, freedom and truth, without a thought for the interests of his country, and measuring everything in terms of his own profit and desires.
I recommend to you, in my last, an innocent piece of art: that of flattering people behind their backs, in presence of those who, to make their own court, much more than for your sake, will not fail to repeat, and even amplify, the praise to the party concerned. This is of all flattery the most pleasing, and consequently the most effectual.
Stanhope, Philip Dormer
Reason clears and plants the wilderness of the imagination to harvest the wheat of art.
Of all wild beasts preserve me from a tyrant; and of all tame, a flatterer.
Princes give me sufficiently if they take nothing from me, and do me much good if they do me no hurt; it is all I require of them.
Michel Eyquem de Montaigne
I have positively identified this group as what I call the Black Nobility, which includes the Queen and Prince Phillip. By the time I get to Vancouver, I'll be able to reveal the true role of the Queen of England and the real facts around Lady Diana's death.
Though God hath raised me high, yet this I count the glory of my crown: that I have reigned with your loves. And though you have had, and may have, many mightier and wiser princes sitting in this seat; yet you never had, nor shall have any that will love you better.
The world is a king, and like a king, desires flattery in return for favor; but true art is selfish and perverse â€” it will not submit to the mold of flattery.
Ludwig van Beethoven
"All the other animals in the forest naturally expect me to be brave, for the Lion is everywhere thought to be the King of Beasts. I learned that if I roared very loudly every living thing was frightened and got out of my way. Whenever I've met a man I've been awfully scared; but I just roared at him, and he has always run away as fast as he could go. If the elephants and the tigers and the bears had ever tried to fight me, I should have run myself â€” I'm such a coward; but just as soon as they hear me roar they all try to get away from me, and of course I let them go."
Baum, L. Frank
They say Princes learn no art truly, but the art of horsemanship. The reason is, the brave beast is no flatterer. He will throw a prince as soon as his groom.
