The Prince Quotes

Three of the best book quotes from The Prince
  1. #1
    “One day he lost sight of his retinue in a great forest. These forests are very useful in delivering princes from their courtiers, like a sieve that keeps back the bran. Then the princes get away to follow their fortunes. In this they have the advantage of the princesses, who are forced to marry before they have had a bit of fun. I wish our princesses got lost in a forest sometimes.”

    “As a world that has no well, Darkly bright in forest dell;
    As a world without the gleam Of the downward-going stream;
    As a world without the glance Of the ocean’s fair expanse;
    As a world where never rain Glittered on the sunny plain;
    —Such, my heart, thy world would be, If no love did flow in thee.”
