Joseph Francis Eduard Desmahis

French Poet, Dramatist

"We cannot do evil to others without doing it to ourselves."

"The corruption of the positively wicked is often less sad and fatal to society than the irregularities of a virtuous man who yields and falls."

"There are many persons the brilliancy of whose minds depends on the heart.—When they open that, it is hardly possible for it not to throw out some fire."
