Today is Machiavelli's birthday. In "honor" of the day, Dreamwalkers is offering a free download of the song "Machiavelli's Daughter." Just go over to the Store section of the website put in your e-mail and the song is yours. Thanks to my friend, Gerri Czachowski, for letting me know about this special day.
Machiavelli himself would be very comfortable in today's environment. Here are a few quotes. . .
It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.
Men judge generally more by the eye than by the hand, for everyone can see and few can feel. Every one sees what you appear to be, few really know what you are.
The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him.
Happy Machiavelli's Birthday, Dreamwalkers.
Here's the song if you just want to listen but not download.
