Niccolo Machiavelli

Niccolo Machiavelli

Italian political thinker, historian, writer, advocate of a strong state power.
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.More Niccolo Machiavelli quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
