Jean de La Bruyere

Jean de La Bruyere

French moralist
Both as to high and low indifferently, men are prepossessed, charmed, fascinated by success; successful crimes are praised very much like virtue itself, and good fortune is not far from occupying the place of the whole cycle of virtues. It must be an atrocious act, a base and hateful deed, which success would not be able to justify. /high/ Jean de La Bruyere quotes
