Happiness seems made to be shared.
Quote by Pierre Corneille
Peace is produced by war.
A good memory is needed after one has lied.
To myself alone do I owe my fame.
What destroys one man preserves another
I agree to, or rather aspire to, my doom.
Guess, if you can, and choose, if you dare.
Those who easily forgive invite offenses.
One half of my life has put the other half in the grave.
Self-love is the source of all our other loves.
He who can live in infamy is unworthy of life.
One is often guilty by being too just.
I don't know how to defend myself: surprised innocence cannot imagine being under suspicion.
We never taste happiness in perfection, our most fortunate successes are mixed with sadness.
Danger breeds best on too much confidence.
The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.
Ambition aspires to descend.
The subject of a good tragedy must not be realistic.
As great as kings may be, they are what we are: they can err like...
To die for one's country is such a worthy fate that all compete for so...
To win without risk is to triumph without glory.
