Essayist Michel de Montaigne argues that princes and emperors should not only concentrate on their own "ease and frivolous amusement" -- they must participate in wars, as well as pursuing "honorable, great, and virtuous things." Leaders need to remain active, though bad fortune or illness may overpower the desire to "die usefully and like a man."
