Claude Helvetius

French philosopher
Of all the vices, avarice is the most generally detested; it is the effect of an avidity common to all men; it is because men hate those from whom they can expect nothing. The greedy misers rail at sordid misers.More Claude Helvetius quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Genius is nothing but continued attention.More Claude Helvetius quotes [08/14/2011 11:08:57]
