to be wiser than an entire nation

There are no principles; there are only events. There is no good and bad, there are only circumstances. The superior man

espouses events and circumstances in order to guide them. If there were principles and fixed laws, nations would not change

them as we change our shirts and a man can not be expected to be wiser than an entire nation.

Honore De Balzac, 1799-1850
