Mercenary and auxiliary arms are useless and dangerous; and if one keeps his state founded on mercenary arms, one will never be firm or secure, for they are disunited, ambitious, without discipline, unfaithful; bold among friends, among enemies cowardly; no fear of God, no faith with men; ruin is postponed only as long as attack is postponed; and in peace you are despoiled by them, in war by the enemy. The cause f this is that they have no love nor cause to keep them in the field other than a small stipend, which is not sufficient to make them want to die for you.
the prince, niccolo machiavelli, 1513
