      If a king wishes to subdue a city belonging to enemies, he first keeps them without bread and water. The enemy being harrassed by hunger becomes subject to him; and thus in respect to the hostile passion, for if a man endures fasting and hunger regularly his enemies will be stricken with weakness in the soul.
