"People have a sixth sense for the weaknesses of others. If, in a first encounter, you demostrate your willingness to compromise, back down, and retreat, you bring out the lion in people who are not necessarily bloodthirsty. Everything depends on perception, and once you are seen as the person who quickly goes on the defensive, who is willing to negotiate and be amenable, you will be pushed around without mercy."
(Robert Greene)

"Do not babble to your companion in such a way where you force your uninvited confidences into his ears. Never mistake a companion for a brother. A brother is someone you can cry to. A companion you must find a way to laugh with. Present yourself too soft and your companion will suddenly feel deceived, as if your softness were putting his very life in danger."
