    "The great French Marshall Lyautey once asked his gardener to plant a tree. The gardener objected that the tree was slow growing and would not reach maturity for 100 years. The Marshall replied, 'In that case, there is no time to lose; plant it this afternoon!'"

    The Art of Worldly Wisdom

    by Baltasar Gracian

    Book Description

    "Use human means as though divine ones did not exist, and use divine means as though there were no human ones". So wrote the Jesuit scholar Baltazar Gracian some 300 years ago, in a book that will be compared to Sun Tzu's The Art of War and Machiavelli's The Prince. A new translation of long lost wisdom on living successfully yet responsibly.
