“Men who respond to good fortune with modesty and kindness are harder to find than those who face adversity with courage.”

– Xenophon

 

Xenophon, an ancient Greek philosopher, wrote an extensive collection of works including ‘Cyropaedia’. This fictional biography of Cyrus the Great, is a satirical work portraying the way that the general public blindly follows its leader. Xenophon includes his own observations of humans as they obey the laws that were laid out for them. This work became in important influence of Machiavelli’s ‘The Prince’, and is thought to be the first ‘Machiavellian’ work, prior to Machiavelli himself.
