Casanova said this on his famous quote :
Cheating is a sin, but
is simply prudence.
It is a virtue
To be sure, it has a likeness to roguery, but that cannot be helped. He who has not learned to practice it is a fool."
Being cunning..is negative. What is the virtue about it? Please en light me because I can't understand the meaning of his words.
In what way..being cunning can be considered prudence? Virtue?
What is "Honest Cunning" anyway??? is this a hidden message of some sort?
