What does this quote mean?
"It is honorable to be raised to a throne than to be born to one. Fortune bestows (gives) the one, merit obtains to other."
-Francesco Petrarch

    I assume your quote should be "It is more honorable . . ."

    If so, it means that it's better to be chosen as a leader than to inherit the leadership.
