Author Quotes

Women detest a jealous man whom they do not love, but it angers them when a man they do love is not jealous at times.

Complaisance pleases all; prejudices none; adorns wit; renders humor agreeable; augments friendship; redoubles love; and united with justice and generosity, becomes the secret chain of the society of mankind.

Sudden friendships rarely live to ripeness.

A jealous man always finds more than he looks for.

Men should keep their eyes wide open before marriage, and half shut afterward.

The virtue which has never been attacked by temptation is deserving of no monument.
