Observes of the Turks: 'They appear to possess very little genius or
inclination for the improvement of arts and sciences, although they live
in countries which were once in the possession of the classic Greeks; but seem
to prefer a slothful mode of life to an active one, continually sauntering away
their time' (430–31).
