A Quote by Samuel P. Huntington on western, dangerous, world, war, west, soviet union, asian, muslim, civilization, and dominance

Western universals is dangerous to the world because it could lead to a major intercivilizational war between core states and it is dangerous to the West because it could lead to defeat of the West. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, Westerners see their civilization in a position of unparalleled dominance, while at the same time weaker Asian, Muslim, and other societies are beginning to gain strength.

A Quote by Domus Ulixes on left, right, command, choice, and dangerous

If someone would command me to choose between left and right,
I will look left, then right, then left again, and perhaps right again too.
Then cross the dangerous street, and continue my way.

A Quote by Niccoló Machiavelli on difficult, doubtful, success, dangerous, initiate, new order, reformer, enemies, profit, old order, defenders, fear, adversaries, laws, incredulity, mankind, believe, and experience

There is nothing more difficult to carry out, nor more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to handle, than to initiate a new order of things.  For the reformer has enemies in all those who profit by the old order, and only lukewarm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order, this lukewarmness arising partly from fear of their adversaries, who have the laws in their favour; and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who do not truly believe in anything new until they have had the actual experience of it.

Niccolo Machiavelli (1469 - 1527)
