he lost his life.

ding which their
ingratitude merited. Although one of these was seen in
recent times to have had a good ending,hermes belt, that of Giacopo D
’Appiano against Messer Piero Gambacorti, Prince of Pisa,
this Giacopo had been raised and nourished and given
reputation by him, afterwards took away his State. Of this
kind, in our times, was that of Coppola against King
Ferrando of Aragon; this Coppola had come to such
greatness that it seemed he lacked nothing except the
Kingdom, [and] in wanting this, however, he lost his life.
And truly if any conspiracy made by great men against a
Prince ought to have succeeded, it should have been this,
as it was made by another King, so to speak, and one who
had so great an opportunity to fulfil his desire: but that
cupidity for domination which blinds them, also blinds
them in the managing of their enterprise,hermes wallet, for if they
should know how to accomplish this evil with prudence, it
would be impossible for them not to succeed. A Prince,
therefore,hermes birkin, who wants to guard himself from Conspiracies
ought to fear more those men to whom he has given too many
benefits, than those to whom he had caused too many
injuries. For these latter lack the opportunity,hermes bags, the
former abound in them; and the desire is the same, because
the desire of dominating is as great or greater than is
that of vengeance. They ought never, therefore, give so
much authority to their friends,Hermes birkin bag, but that a distance
should exist between them and the Principate, and that
there should be something left [in the middle] for them to
desire; otherwise it will be a rare occasion if it will
not happen to them as to the above mentioned Princes.But
let us return to our subject. I say that they who conspire
having to be great men and have easy access to the Prince,
it remains to be discussed what successes there have been
of their enterprises, and to see what were the causes
which made them happy or unhappy,hermes birkin. And (as I have said
above) in all these conspiracies, there are to be found
three dangerous periods of time; before, during, and after
the fact. Few are found, however,replica handbags, which have had good
endings, that it is almost impossible that all should have
passed through [the first period] happily,hermes birkin. And in
beginning to discuss the dangers of the first period,
which are the most important,hermes outlet, I say that there is need to
be very prudent and have great good fortune, that in
conducting a conspiracy, it not be discovered [at this
stage]. And they are discovered either by [someone]
telling or by conjecture. The telling results from finding
little faith or little prudence in the men to whom you
have communicated it: the little faith [treachery] is so
commonly found, that you cannot communicate it [the
conspiracy] except to your trusted ones who, for love of
you,hermes handbag, risk their own deaths, or to those me
