Pietro Aretino Quote

What evil is there in seeing a man possess a woman? Why, the beasts would be more free than we! It seems to me that that which is given us by nature for our own preservation ought to be worn round the neck as a pendant and in the hat for a medal.


Edward Hutton (1922) Pietro Aretino, the scourge of princes. p. 65
