Jean De La Bruyere

A pious man is one who would be an atheist if the king were.
Jean De La Bruyere quote

False greatness is unsociable and remote: conscious of its own frailty, it hides, or at least averts its face, and reveals itself only enough to create an illusion and not be recognized as the meanness that it really is. True greatness is free, kind, familiar and popular; it lets itself be touched and handled, it loses nothing by being seen at close quarters; the better one knows it, the more one admires it.
Jean De La Bruyere quote


French philosopher, 1645 - 96
