By the work one knows the workman.
Quote by Jean De La Fontaine
Rather suffer than die is man's motto.
I bend and do not break.
Everyone calls himself a friend, but only a fool relies on it; nothing is commoner...
Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.
We like to see others, but don't like others to see through us.
There is no road of flowers leading to glory.
Beware so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance
Nothing is more dangerous than a friend without discretion; even a prudent enemy is preferable.
Help yourself, and Heaven will help you.
Everyone has his faults which he continually repeats: neither fear nor shame can cure them.
We read on the foreheads of those who are surrounded by a foolish luxury, that...
We believe no evil till the evil's done
Man is so made that when anything fires his soul, impossibilities vanish.
The strongest passion is fear.
Every flatterer lives at the expense of him who listens to him.
Dressed in the lion's skin, the ass spread terror far and wide.
Every journalist owes tribute to the evil one.
It is twice the pleasure to deceive the deceiver.
In short, Luck's always to blame.
There is nothing useless to men of sense.
