- "The White Peacock", D. H. (David Herbert) Lawrence.
Thou hast heard, for many have told thee, and I have never concealed it, how I entered the house of thy father whilst yet a boy- a stranger to all those ambitions which every generous soul should feel- and how I was brought up by him, and loved as though I had been born of his blood; how under his governance I learned to be valiant and capable of availing myself of all that fortune, of which thou hast been witness.- "The Prince", Nicolo Machiavelli.
