Joseph Joubert

Joseph Joubert

French moralist and essayist, remembered today largely for his Pensées published posthumously.
I would fain coin wisdom,—mould it, I mean, into maxims, proverbs, sentences, that can easily be retained and transmitted. Would that I could denounce and banish from the language of men—as base money—the words by which they cheat and are cheated! /wisdom/ Joseph Joubert quotes
