Favorite Chiave Quotes

1. "Incenerire i sogni. Bruciare i sogni è il segreto per abbattere definitivamente i propri nemici, perché non trovino più la forza di rialzarsi e ricominciare. Non sognino le cose belle delle loro città, delle vite altrui, non sognino i racconti di altri, così pieni di libertà e di amore. Non sognino più nulla. Se non permetti alle persone di sognare, le rendi schiave."
Author: Alessandro D'Avenia
2. "Satan, on the contrary, is thin, ascetic and a fanatical devotee of logic. He reads Machiavelli, Ignatius of Loyola, Marx and Hegel; he is cold and unmerciful to mankind, out of a kind of mathematical mercifulness. He is damned always to do that which is most repugnant to him: to become a slaughterer, in order to abolish slaughtering, to sacrifice lambs so that no more lambs may be slaughtered, to whip people with knouts so that they may learn not to let themselves be whipped, to strip himself of every scruple in the name of a higher scrupulousness, and to challenge the hatred of mankind because of his love for it--an abstract and geometric love."
Author: Arthur Koestler
3. "La chiave," the raspy voice replied. "The password."
Author: Dan Brown

Author: Don King
5. "Bloody Machiavellian English Intelligence Officer playing God"
Author: Elizabeth Wein
6. "Quanto alla felicità, la maggioranza di noi riesce a resisterle; I'infelicità è ben altrimenti insidiosa. L'avete assaporata? Non ne sarete mai sazi; la cercherete con avidità e, preferibilmente, là dove non si trova; e allora là la proietterete, visto che senza infelicità tutto vi sembrerebbe inutile e opaco. Ovunque essa si trovi, scaccia il mistero o lo rende luminoso. L'infelicità che è sapore e chiave delle cose, accidente e ossessione, capriccio e necessità, vi farà amare I'apparenza in ciò che questa ha di più potente, di più durevole e di più vero, e lì vi terrà per sempre avvinti perché, « intensa » per natura, è, come ogni « intensità », servitù, assoggettamento."
Author: Emil Cioran
7. "Better and happier those who, recognizing that everything is fictitious, write the novel before someone writes it for them and, like Machiavelli, don courtly garments to write in secret."
Author: Fernando Pessoa
8. "We are much beholden to Machiavelli and others, that write what men do, and not what they ought to do . For it is not possible to join serpentine wisdom with the columbine innocency, except men know exactly all the conditions of the serpent; his baseness and going upon his belly, his volubility and lubricity, his envy and sting, and the rest; that is, all forms and natures of evil. For without this, virtue lieth open and unfenced. Nay, an honest man can do no good upon those that are wicked, to reclaim them, without the help of the knowledge of evil."
Author: Francis Bacon

"Henry KissingerHow I'm missing yerYou're the Doctor of my dreamsWith your crinkly hair and your glassy stareAnd your Machiavellian schemesI know they say that you are very vainAnd short and fat and pushyBut at least you're not insaneHenry KissingerHow I'm missing yerAnd wishing you were hereHenry KissingerHow I'm missing yerYou're so chubby and so neatWith your funny clothes and your squishy noseYou're like a German parakeetAll right so people say that you don't careBut you've got nicer legs than HitlerAnd bigger tits than CherHenry KissingerHow I'm missing yerAnd wishing you were here"
Author: Graham Chapman
10. "I'm not quite Machiavellian enough to set him up, but if he strays too close to the edge I might give him a nudge."
Author: Joe Haldeman
11. "Please do not think that I am accusing socialists of insincerity or that I wish to hold them up to scorn either as bad democrats or as unprincipled schemers and opportunists. I fully believe, in spite of the childish Machiavellism in which some of their prophets indulge, that fundamentally most of them always have been as sincere in their professions as any other men. Besides, I do not believe in insincerity in social strife, for people always come to think what they want to think and what they incessantly profess. As regards democracy, socialist parties are presumably no more opportunists than are any others; they simply espouse democracy if, as, and when it serves their ideals and interests and not otherwise. Lest readers should be shocked and think so immoral a view worthy only of the most callous of political practitioners, ..."
Author: Joseph A. Schumpeter
12. "I'm Machiavelli's offspring, I'm the king of New York, king of the coast, one hand, I juggle them both."

Author: Lord Acton
17. "Europeans are forever the offspring of Machiavelli, trapped in a historical rollercoaster that can bring us a monarchy-toppling French Revolution and then a few years later Napoleon Bonaparte as emperor."
Author: Loretta Napoleoni
18. "A man of nothing who has started out from nothing starting out from an unassignable place: these are, for Machiavelli, the conditions for regeneration."
Author: Louis Althusser
19. "Machiavelli had some cold tricks for people who wanted to be demagogues and wanted to take over the world."
Author: Mads Mikkelsen
20. "Cruelty, whether physical or emotional, isn't normal. It may signal what psychologists call the dark triad of psychopathic, narcissistic and Machiavellian personality disorders. One out of about every 25 individuals has an antisocial personality disorder. Their prognosis for recovery is zero, their potential for hurting you about 100 percent. So don't assume that a vicious person just had a difficult childhood or a terrible day; most people with awful childhoods end up being empathetic, and most people, even on their worst days, don't seek satisfaction by inflicting pain. When you witness evil, if only the tawdry evil of a conversational stiletto twist, use your ninjutsu, wait for a distraction, then disappear."
Author: Martha Beck

"I have no idea what that is," Machiavelli admitted."Doesn't sound scary to me," Billy said."It's a seven-headed sea dragon."Machiavelli nodded. "That might work.""It'll certainly get their attention," Billy muttered."
Author: Michael Scott
24. "Nothing. I have no way of getting in touch with Machiavelli."Virginia produced her wooden flute and spun it in her fingers. "I don't know why you're so worried, Doctor. I can easily lull them to sleep with-"Before she could finish her sentence a green-skinned, green-haired, fish-tailed woman had leapt straight up out of the sea, snatched the flute from Virginia's fingers and splashed back into the water on the opposite side of the boat, leaving her empty-handed. Virginia Dare's scream was hideous. Flinging off her smoke-stained jacket and pulling off her shoes,she launched herself over the side of the boat and disappeared beneath the waves without a trace."
Author: Michael Scott
25. "Don't be creative. Don't be stupid.""That's what Machiavelli said. You guys really have a lot of faith in me, don't you?""Neither one of us wants to lose you. Just be careful, Billy. Careful is my middle name."Black Hawk rolled his eyes. "You told me it was Henry."

Author: Niccolò Machiavelli

34. "When I heard of the shady tactics of the Moonies, my initial indignation was modified by empathy. I remembered only too well all the innocuous-sounding "fronts" operated by Evangelicals in order to witness to sinners, e.g., coffee houses, concerts, philosophical forums, religious surveys. None of these was ever billed for what it was. The idea was to hook the unsuspecting sinner and win an opportunity to tell him the gospel. Similar Machiavellian tactics govern various interpersonal contacts. A campus leader or foreign student may find himself the object of an Evangelical's friendly attention, not realizing he has been singled out for "friendship evangelism" because of his potentially strategic position."
Author: Robert M. Price

Author: Sabrina Jeffries
37. "The political tradition of ancient thought, filtered in Italy by Machiavelli, says one thing clearly: every prince needs allies, and the bigger the responsibility, the more allies he needs."
Author: Silvio Berlusconi
38. "Toujours les même excellentes intentions qui pavent si bien l'enfer, l'enfer des camps de concentration. Léon Blum est un homme d'une intelligence raffinée, d'une grande culture, il aime Stendhal, il a sans doute lu et relu la Chartreuse de Parme; il lui manque cependant cette pointe de cynisme indispensable à la clairvoyance. On peut tout trouver dans les rangs de la social-démocratie, sauf des esprits véritablement libres. La doctrine est cependant souple, sujette à autant d'interprétations et modifications qu'on voudra; mais il n'est jamais bon d'avoir derrière soi une doctrine, surtout quand elle enferme le dogme du progrès, la confiance inébranble dans l'histoire et dans les masses. Marx n'est pas un bon auteur pour former le jugement; Machiavel vaut infiniment mieux."
Author: Simone Weil
39. "Se ci fosse un cacciavite per togliere le idee sbagliate e un martello per fissare le buone intenzioni, una chiave inglese per stringere per sempre l'amore e una sega per tagliare col passato! Ma questa attrezzeria non ce l'hanno data e, dopo aver tentennato e scricchiolato, prima o poi ci romperemo."
Author: Stefano Benni
40. "Solo. Sì, era quella la parola chiave, la parola più terribile di tutto il vocabolario. Al confronto "omicidio" era solo una bazzecola e "inferno" ne era solo un blando sinonimo..."
Author: Stephen King
41. "Existují takové veci jako jedlé... ne, delikátní pirohy v polévce, hrášky dokonale uvarené, rajská omácka pikantní ve své chutové plnosti a masová nápln z onechcástí zvírat, které by se daly vetšinou i pojmenovat. Jsou platonické burgery vyrobené z hovezího a ne z volské tlamy a kopyt. Jsou jisté obchody, kde mají smažené filé s pomfrity, kdy filé je ryba a ne jen bílá brecka v rakvicce ze smažené strouhanky a pomfrity jsou k jídlu a nedají se použít k holení. Jsou párky v rohlíku, kdy mají párky s masem spolecnou nejen barvu a jejich štastní konzumenti si na ne nedávají horcici, aby nepokazili tu chut. Duležité však je, že se lidé dají naucit na to, aby dávali prednost obcerstvení toho prvního typu a vyhledávali je. Je to, jako kdyby Machiavelli napsal kucharku. Ale at už se mají veci jakkoliv, neexistuje omluva pro nikoho, kdo dá na pizzu ananas."
Author: Terry Pratchett
42. "Most people are just too self-absorbed, well-meaning, and lazy to bother orchestrating Machiavellian plans to slight or insult us. It's more often a boring, complicated story of wrong assumptions, miscommunication, bad administration, and cover-ups—people trying, and mostly failing, to do the right thing, hurting each other not because that's their intention but because it's impossible to avoid."
Author: Tim Kreider
43. "It is in reference to Pope Julius that Machiavelli moralizes on the resemblance between Fortune and women, and concludes that it is the bold rather than the cautious man that will win and hold them both."
Author: W.K. Marriott
44. "I'll drown more sailors than the mermaid shall;I'll slay more gazers than the basalisks;I'll play the orator as well as Nestor,Decieve more slily that Ulysses could, And like a Sinon, take another Troy.I can add colors to the chameleon,Change shapes with Proteus for advantagesAnd set the murderous Machiavel to school.Can I do this, and cannot get a crown?Tut! were it further off, I'll pluck it down."
Author: William Shakespeare
