BOUFFLERS, Stanislas Jean de, Marquis Quotes
(1738-1815), French poet
Ignorance is a prolonged infancy, only deprived of its charm.
Jealousy is the sister of love, as the devil is the brother of angels.
Metaphysics is the anatomy of the soul.
Oblivion is a second death, which great minds dread more than the first.
Glory is safe when it is deserved; it is not so with popularity; one lasts like a mosaic; the other is effaced like a crayon drawing.
The higher we rise, the more isolated we become; all elevations are cold.
Pleasure is the flower that fades; remembrance is the lasting perfume.
