A Man that will head the Mob is like a Bull let loose, tyed about with Squibs and Crackers. He must be half mad that goeth about it, yet at sometimes shall be too hard for all the wise Men in a Kingdom: For though good Sense speaketh against Madness, yet it is out of Countenance whenever it meets it. It would be a greater Reproach to the People that their Favour is short-liv’d, if their Malice was not so too. The Thoughts of the People have no regular Motion, they come out by Starts.

Princes have a particular Advantage. There was at first as much of Art as Nature in his Affability, but by Habit it became Natural. It is an Error of the better hand, but the Universality taketh away a good deal of the Force of it.
