Foundational Law Quotes XXIII

“[T]he prince is said to be an absolutely binding
law unto himself . . . But who in public affairs may
even speak of the will of the prince, since in such
matters he is not permitted his own will unless it
is prompted by law or equity, or brings about
judgments for the common utility?”

- John of Salisbury
