We remember how the “Judgment of Paris” brought about the Trojan War. If not, Wikipedia reminds us.

I came across this quote, which applies to the bleak corporate futures faced by young princes and princesses these days.

If Paris lived now, and preferred beauty to power and riches, it would not be called his Judgment, but his Want of Judgment.

Horace Walpole (1717–1797)

Paris might have been more prudent if he’d graduated with a big student-loan debt.
