I'd like to propose a personal favorite by Machiavelli.

It is enough to ask somebody for his weapons without saying 'I want to kill you with them', because when you have his weapons in hand, you can satisfy your desire.

Book 1, Ch 44 (as translated by Julia Conaway Bondanella and Peter Bondanella)
