A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it.
Quote by Jean De La Fontaine
To win a race, the swiftness of a dart availeth not without a timely start.
Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.
Power is the faculty or capacity to act, the strength and potency to accomplish something....
Beware so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance
We believe no evil till the evil's done
One often has need of one, inferior to himself.
It is a double pleasure to deceive the deceiver.
A hungry stomach cannot hear.
All power is a compound of time and patience
There is no road of flowers leading to glory.
We must laugh before we are happy, for fear we die before we laugh at...
Dressed in the lion's skin, the ass spread terror far and wide.
A pessimist and an optimist, so much the worse; so much the better.
Man is so made that when anything fires his soul, impossibilities vanish
Everyone has his faults which he continually repeats: neither fear nor shame can cure them.
Friendship is the shadow of the evening, which increases with the setting sun of life.
Every journalist owes tribute to the evil one.
The strongest passion is fear.
It is impossible to please all the world and one's father.
Every flatterer lives at the expense of him who listens to him.
