Reader comments about this quote:
In the philosophical atmosphere as here displayed, the ability to rule one's self may be an attribute of a corporeal prince although, to be a king - is to be (without exterior rule). To rule one's self is a student's self portrait of still learning and/or becoming.

    I should add here, I am making a distinction between ruling and governing.
