A Quote by Marsilio Ficino on nationality, nature, people, poverty, and time

[Nature said] The sea shall disjoin the people [of England] from others, and knit them to a fierce nationality. It shall give them markets on every side. Long time I will keep them on their feet, by poverty, border-wars . . . seafaring . . .

Marsilio Ficino (1433 - 1499)
