Which nor passing I fear of it nor the benefits never will make to forget. It does not matter what to become or precautions that if to take, if not to exhaust the inhabitants, them will not forget that name and that order; to minor they will remember the incident them (…) But, when the cities or provinces are accustomed to live under the government of a prince and its blood disappears, being of a side customary to obey e, of another one, not having this old prince, they do not arrive at an agreement to choose another one and they do not know to live in freedom: therefore they are slower in taking weapons and with more easiness a prince will be able conquest them and to conserve them in its poder.’ ‘ (MAQUIAVEL.
