Christine de Pizan

Christine de Pizan (Professional writer from France, 1364-1430 CE)

“You can’t define something as being for the common good of a city, country or any other community of people, if it doesn’t contribute to the universal good of all.”

  • From The Book of the City of Ladies by Christine de Pizan, translated by Rosalind Brown-Grant (Penguin Classics, 1999).
