Character is of the first importance, but intelligence is nevertheless essential.  It is desirable for a leader to have a broad education.  History and poetry increase his knowledge of human passions.  Culture offers the man of action opportunities now and then to capture his serenity;  it puts at his disposal models of order and clarity.  It is, in a sense, a work of art to reconstruct a country or to lead an army, and the man who has acquired a sense of beauty from his studies will be the more successful for it.
