Ruler Quotations

For me every ruler is alien that defies public opinion.
Mahatma Gandhi

The first method for estimating the intelligence of a ruler is to look at the men he has around him.
Niccolo Machiavelli

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side.
Aristotle

He who is to be a good ruler must have first been ruled.
Aristotle

Oh while I live, to be the ruler of life, not a slave, to meet life as a powerful conqueror, and nothing exterior to me will ever take command of me.
Walt Whitman
