French Moralist Jean de La Bruyère

My love of life quotes and proverbs has led me to create this post on the above gentleman.
Jean de La Bruyère
was born in Paris in 1645 into a middle class family. .... read on

One of my favourite quotes of his is:"Life is a tradgedy for those who feel and a comedy for those who think"
There of course are many others to enjoy:
“At the beginning and at the end of love, the two lovers are embarrassed to find themselves alone.”
“Out of difficulties grow miracles.”
“A mediocre mind thinks it writes divinely; a good mind thinks it writes reasonably”
“Two persons cannot long be friends if they cannot forgive each other's little failings”
More quotes for those interested..................
