Unhappy the general who comes on the field of battle with a system.
My success and everything good that I have done, I owe to my mother.
I am sometimes a fox and sometimes a lion. The whole secret of government lies in knowing when to be the one or the other.
There is only one favorable moment in war; talent consists in knowing how to seize it.
I may have had many projects, but I never was free to carry out any of them.
