Education of a Christian Prince. Chapter 10: The Business of Princes in Peacetime

It is better for the prince to be engaged in public duties than to spend his life hidden from sight. But whenever he goes out, he should take care that his face, his bearing, and above all his speech are such that they will set his people an example, bearing in mind that whatever he says or does will be seen by all and known to all.

By Erasmus of Rotterdam
