Jean de La Bruyere

French moralist
Men blush less for their crimes than for their weaknesses and vanity.More Jean de La Bruyere quotes [10/21/2011 10:10:42]
Life is short and tedious, and is wholly spent in wishing; we trust to find rest and enjoyment at some future time, often at an age when our best blessings, youth and health, have already left us. When at last I that time has arrived, it surprises us in the midst of fresh desires; we have got no farther when we are attacked by a fever which kills us; if we had been cured, it would only have been to give us more time for other desires.More Jean de La Bruyere quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The fears of old age disturb us, yet how few attain it?More Jean de La Bruyere quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A man can keep another's secret better than his own. A woman her own better than others.More Jean de La Bruyere quotes [10/21/2011 10:10:05]
During the course of our life we now and then enjoy some pleasures so inviting, and have some encounters of so tender a nature, that though they are forbidden, it is but natural to wish that they were at least allowable. Nothing can be more delightful, except it be to abandon them for virtue's sake.More Jean de La Bruyere quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
