So I am sitting here struggling to write a paper for Philosophy. My assignment says, "Find a few short sentences in Machiavelli's Discourses on Livy that help you understand his thesis."
I found some good ones but they all seemed too long--like, four or five lines long.

And then I realized:

Machiavelli doesn't write short sentences.

Back to the drawing board...
