Echoes through time: the quality of the men he has around him

“The first opinion that is formed of a ruler’s intelligence is based on the quality of the men he has around him.  When they are competent and loyal he can always be considered wise, because he has been able to recognise their competence and to keep them loyal.”

Niccolo Machiavelli (1469 – 1527), The Prince
