He Said That? 4/12/17

From Nicollò Machiavelli (1469–1527), Italian political philosopher, historian, musician, poet, and romantic comedic playwright, The Prince (1513):

There are three classes of intellects: one which comprehends by itself; another which appreciates what others comprehend; and a third which neither comprehends by itself nor by the showing of others; the first is the most excellent, the second is good, and the third is useless.

    Robert, one of my favorite quotes.
    I must admit, most of the time I am the first (I hope), sometimes I am the second and I pray to never be the third.
