Notable words from Pasquale Paoli

10929001_815476321842104_9172333308253858501_nThere is only one evil in the world, ignorance.
The uneducated man in the way of society, is weak or fierce, degraded, unable to discern good from evil, the truth from error, virtue from vice – and if he is not a victim of his own passions, he is used as an instrument for the passions and whims of others. With education, young people understand, that in their country, they have rights to practice – they also have their duty to fulfill.’
