Quote to ponder over

Any man who tries to be good all the time isbound to come to ruin among
the great number who are not good. Hence a prince who wants to keep his authority
must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it,
as necessity requires

--- THE PRINCE, Niccolo Machiavelli, 1469-1527

Cheem, but problematic. Who is to decide when it is necessary or not? And is there a difference with a person who tries to be good, and a person who tries to do good?
