Every child baptized has a godfather and a godmother. But in the world of the mafia, the world of secret criminal organization, there's no godmother. There's only a godfather who runs his illegal business and prize his family over everything, cause he is Italian, more exactly Sicilian. Sicily is a beautiful island in the south of Italy. It is also very violent and the birthplace of Italian Mafia.

Michael was not meant to become the head of the family business as he was only the third son of Vito Corleone. But to become a godfather you need to be a leader, a businessman, a cold head, and not be afraid of the use of violence. Michael had it all, and over the time, he took control of the destiny of the Corleone's family.

Rivalries with other criminal groups and mafias are common. The easiest way to get rid of the competition is by eliminating them, I mean... killing them. Revenge is also very frequent in the mafia world. Michael sought revenge for the ones who attempted to kill his father. As a result, the peace accord between the families (mafia family groups) was broken, and it turned into an open war. After his father's death, Michael carried out Vito's plan to eliminate the other New-York dons. In one stroke, the Corleone family regained its status as the most powerful criminal organization in the country.

During his life as godfather, Michael would extend the family business, then try to make it legal, to legitimize the family business; and get away from the violent underworld to keep his family safe. But once you belong to the mafia world, they would kill you rather than letting you go free, they come after you to murder you cause you know too much. The enemies you make in the criminal world, are enemies for a lifetime.

All this war between the dons began with a failed business deal, when Vito refused to get involve in drug trafficking.

"I'll make him an offer he can't refuse."

Vito had a lot of money, he could refuse any offers. He didn't care, he was a powerful don. But in the mafia, they take things too personally. A no can mean an offense that deserve death. In the world of criminals they are not afraid to kill, or being killed. They make it a question of honor. Too much love will kill you? Nope, in the mafia world it would be rather: Too much pride will kill you.

These are godfathers quotes:

"Great men are not born great, they grow great . . ."

And they die great too, like a man. I mean, not like little girls, crying and begging for one life.

"Never hate your enemies. It affects your judgment."

Instead, love him and turn to him the other cheek like Jesus said. Well,... I don't recommend you to do this in the mafia world. What would work better is: "kill him before he kills you."

"Revenge is a dish that tastes best when served cold."

If you want to get revenge, right before doing it, put the food into the fridge before eating it, instead of putting the food into the oven. It will put you in the mood (bad) for getting your revenge. A cold-blooded killer needs a cold meal before the kill.

"Friendship is everything. Friendship is more than talent. It is more than the government. It is almost the equal of family"

Without friends you don't last in the mafia business. They protect you, help you, and you return the favor. Union makes the force.

"A friend should always underestimate your virtues and an enemy overestimate your faults"

I don't know why Michael said that, cause the opposite could be true: "A friend should always overestimate your virtues and an enemy underestimate your faults" Choose the one you prefer, it doesn't make any difference to me.

"The lawyer with the briefcase can steal more money than the man with the gun."

They are also easier to kill as they don't carry a gun. It was a good idea to send killers to eliminate Keinszig, the Swiss chief accountant of the Vatican Bank who attempted to swindle the Corleone family.

"So, goodnight Michael. The life of your daughter Mary was worth more than the family business. But in the mafia world: Business means Death."
