play the perfect courtier – law 24 – #48laws by robert greene

Law 24

The perfect courtier thrives in a world where everything revolves around power and political dexterity. He has mastered the art of indirection; he flatters, yields to superiors, and asserts power over others in the most oblique and graceful manner. Learn and apply the laws of courtiership and there will be no limit to how far you can rise in the court. –Robert Greene, The 48 Laws of Power (review)
