[quote:goddess isis:MV8xMjc1NDUwXzY3OURGQTQ2] Casanova said this on his famous quote : "[b]Cheating is a sin, but[u] honest cunning[/u] is simply prudence. [u]It is a virtue[/u].[/b] 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? :wtf: [/quote]
