#Quotesoftheday The Renaissance of Intelligence


“There are three kinds of intelligence: one kind understands things for itself, the other appreciates what others can understand, the third understands neither for itself nor through others. This first kind is excellent, the second good, and the third kind useless.” —Niccolo Machiavelli

Niccolo Machiavelli lived from 1469 to 1527 and is most famously associated with the book The Prince. If you’ve studied this time period, even in a general way, you’ve probably had this book on your reading list. According to The History Guide, the theme of this short book is “all means may be resorted to for the establishment and preservation of authority — the end justifies the means — and that the worst and most treacherous acts of the ruler are justified by the wickedness and treachery of the governed.” Quite a theme, especially in this political season.

BTW – Machiavelli is known as the “founder of Political Science.” Happy Flag Day!

Have a great day!

“Ms. York’s description of the characters and Ireland of 1076 gives you the feeling of being part of a story which is full of twists, turns, betrayals, evil characters, clans at war and, of course, a wonderful romance.” – An Amazon reviewer
