Skirmishes

HERE BELOW, I take reprieve from my standards, and break all my own rules, on the principle that we ought permit ourselves the occasional hypocrisy, lest the supple reed of the spirit grow rigid.
      Besides which, I recall that questi e simili modi debbe osservare uno principe savio, e mai ne’ tempi pacifici stare ozioso, ma con industria farne capitale, per potersene valere nelle avversità, acciò che, quando si muta la fortuna, lo truovi parato a resisterle.
