Blackadder of Equestria

by Doctor Parker


Introduction

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

"Men are so simple and yield so readily to the desires of the moment that he who will trick will always find another who will suffer to be tricked."

"The fact is that a man who wants to act virtuously in every way necessarily comes to grief among so many who are not virtuous."

-Niccolo Machiavelli

"Each player must accept the cards life deals him or her: but once they are in hand, he or she alone must decide how to play the cards in order to win the game."

"To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize."

-Voltaire

"I have a Cunning Plan."

-Baldrick
