"There is No Greater Fool" Margaret of Valois Quote Mug
"There is no greater fool than the man who thinks himself wise. No one is wiser than he who suspects he is a fool." Margaret of Valois was a French Princess who corresponded regularly with Queen Elizabeth I. She was also a master political manipulator who wound up being held in comfortable prison by her own brother, Henry III. She also wrote her memoirs, and they were published posthumously.
Enjoy your morning hot beverage of choice in this mug with a sketch of Margaret and this wonderful quote every morning. Or keep your pens in it on your desk. Either way, it's a great quote, and will start conversations wherever it's in view!
Sketch of Margaret is by talented San Diego artist David Brooks, who has said that sketching these kickass women has inspired him to learn more about women's history. Maybe when you drink your hot beverage of choice in the mug you'll have the same effect on someone else!
Remember everything you buy is a Purchase with a Purpose. I split 10% of my profits between the local historical society in my hometown of Lancaster, PA and through funding microloans to women refugee entrepreneurs through Kiva.
