Sunday thought for the day

In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love – they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.  (Orson Welles)

  1. hmmm interesting.

  2. Ah .. Lucrezia Borgia. Tried to read a biography of her once, but there was too much info about the Pope and his cronies. Got bored with it unfortunately.
