QUOTE FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM
“… it ought to be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. Because the innovator has for enemies all those who have done well under the old conditions, and lukewarm defenders in those who may do well under the new.” – Nicolo Machiavelli, The Prince, 1515
This is as relevant today as it was when written nearly 500 years ago. May it give you strength as you grapple with the challenges of the new year.
