Quote from Niccolo Machiavelli 

"Thus it happens in matters of state; for knowing afar off (which it is
only given a prudent man to do) the evils that are brewing, they are
easily cured.  But when, for want of such knowledge, they are allowed
to grow so that everyone can recognize them, there is no longer any
remedy to be found."
