A Quote by Niccoló Machiavelli on track, imitation, prowess, emulate, prudence, and greatness
Men nearly always follow the tracks made by others and proceed in their affairs by imitation, even though they cannot entirely keep to the tracks of others or emulate the prowess of their models. So a prudent man should always follow in the footsteps of great men and imitate those who have been outstanding.
