In his preface to his commentary on Xenophon's Hellenica, dated about 1440, he stated that he had noticed that Agnolo had been puzzled by his "hesitation and slowness" in "actions that might easily lead to war."

Thus, Aquinas says, "prudentia adiuvet omnes virtutes, et in omnibus operetur" (Summa 2.2.47.5.ad 2) ["prudence helps the other virtues and works throughout them all"].
