  • A kingly gift:

    By AntonE-3G
    The knowledge within is worth more than all the gold that could be gifted to a king. In the words of Machiavelli, "Those who try to win the favour of a prince usually come to him with things that they regard as most precious, or that they see him take most pleasure in; so we often we often see princes being presented with horses, arms, cloth of gold, precious stones, and similar ornaments that are worthy of their greatness. Wanting to present myself to your Magnificence with some testimony of my devotion towards you, the possession of mine that I love best and value most is my knowledge of the actions of great men—knowledge that I have acquired from long experience in contemporary affairs and from a continual study of antiquity. Having reflected on it long and hard, I now send it, digested into a little volume, to your Magnificence." Knowledge is a kingly gift and worth more than all the riches in the world.
