In short, no association or alliance can be happy or stable without me. People can't long tolerate a ruler, nor can a master his servant, a maid her mistress, a teacher his pupil, a friend his friend nor a wife her husband, a landlord his tenant, a soldier his comrade nor a party-goer his companion, unless they sometimes have illusions about each other, make use of flattery, and have the sense to turn a blind eye and sweeten life for themselves with the honey of folly.More Desiderius Erasmus quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Nothing is as peevish and pedantic as men's judgments of one another.More Desiderius Erasmus quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
