XIX. Strength

~ Hercules and the Hydra by Antonio del Pollaiuolo


A chain is no stronger than its weakest link.

Strength grows stronger by being tried.

Weak things united become strong.

Men, not walls make a city safe.


If the lion’s skin cannot, the fox’s shall.

Cunning surpasses strength.

Subtlety is better than force.

Wisdom is better than strength.


Skill and confidence are an unconquered army.

Skill will accomplish what is denied to force.

Tis skill, not strength, that governs a ship.

Great strokes make not sweet music.

    Prioritize Economics. Philosophy will boggle your mind. Study the latetr at your leisure later on. You can read books and learn about it even without formal schooling.

  2. I think you need to study both hand in hand. I would say, prioritise practical philosophy. Anyway, your phD in Economics means Doctorate in the Philosophy of Economics.
