François de la Rochefoucauld quotes

French classical author, leading exponent of the Maxime, 1613-1680

The strongest sympton of wisdom in man is his being sensible of his own follies.


The pleasure of love is in loving, and we derive more happiness from the passion that we experience than from the passion we arouse.


The love of justice in most men is only the fear of themselves suffering by injustice.


If we judge of love by its usual effects, it resembles hatred more than friendship.


The heart is forever making the head its fool.


Wisdom is to the mind what health is to the body.


Pride does not wish to owe and vanity does not wish to pay.


Preserving health by too severe a rule is a worrisome malady.


Perfect valor is to behave, without witnesses, as one would act were all the world watching.


Perfect courage is to do without witnesses what one would be capable of doing with the world looking on.
