James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
 
Guicciardini
 
  Affairs that depend on many rarely succeed.  1
  He who imitates what is evil always exceeds; he who imitates what is good always falls short.  2
  L’imitazione del male supera sempre l’essempio; come per il contrario l’imitazione del bene è sempre inferiore—He who imitates what is bad always goes beyond his model, while he, on the contrary, who imitates what is good always comes short of it.  3
  There is no evil but is mingled with good.  4
