François-René Chateaubriand

The most disastrous times have produced the greatest minds. The purest metal comes of the most ardent furnace; the most brilliant lightning come of the darkest clouds.More François-René Chateaubriand quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which.More François-René Chateaubriand quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
In living literature no person is a competent judge but of works written in his own language . I have expressed my opinion concerning a number of English writers; it is very possible that I may be mistaken, that my admiration and my censure may be equally misplaced, and that my conclusions may appear impertinent and ridiculous on the other side of the Channel.More François-René Chateaubriand quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Atheism can benefit no class of people; neither the unfortunate, whom it bereaves of hope, nor the prosperous, whose joys it renders insipid, nor the soldier, of whom it makes a coward, nor the woman whose beauty and sensibility it mars, nor the mother, who has a son to lose, nor the rulers of men, who have no surer pledge of the fidelity of their subjects than religion.More François-René Chateaubriand quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Genius creates, and taste preserves. Taste is the good sense of genius; without taste, genius is only sublime folly.More François-René Chateaubriand quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
