The second estate of French society was made up of the nobility. These nobles lived on manors which they had inherited. The second estate consisted of about 2% of the total population who owned about 25% of the total land in France.
These nobles collected dues and rent from the peasants who lived on their lands. This endless source of income allowed them to live a lavish lifestyle.
The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them.
Armored knights raised their visors to identify themselves when they rode past their king. This custom has become the modern military salute.
