Francesco Guicciardini

Be careful how you do one man a pleasure which must needs occasion equal displeasure in another. For he who is thus slighted will not forget, but will think the offence to himself the greater in that another profits by it; while he who receives the pleasure will either not remember it, or will consider the favour done him less than it really was.More Francesco Guicciardini quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

[It., Non e male alcuno nelle cose umane che non abbia congiunto seco qualche bene.]More Francesco Guicciardini quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I know no man who feels deeper disgust than I do at the ambition, avarice, and profligacy of the priesthood, as well because every one of these vices is odious in itself, as because each of them separately and all of them together are utterly abhorrent in men making profession of a life dedicated to God.More Francesco Guicciardini quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
