Christine de Pizan

Christine de Pizan (c. 1364-1430)

“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 (Part II, section 54) by Christine de Pizan, translated by Rosalind Brown-Grant (Penguin Classics, 1999).
