Image result for a fox


A symbol from Machiavelli’s The Prince. When a leader comes to power, it is important that he or she knows when to act like a fox – cunning, deceptive, indirect. The best time to play a fox is in the face of toughness or aggression – when someone is openly aggressive, or a situation is clearly unfair. Learn the ways of the fox, using deception and indirection to hide your intentions from the people around you and trap them without their knowing.
