“There is no disguise that can for long conceal love where it exists or simulate it where it does not.”
-Francois, duc de La Rochefoucauld, aphorist (1613-1680).
If we have not peace within ourselves, it is in vain to seek it from outward sources.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld.
It is not enough to have great qualities; we should also have the management of them.
– Francois de La Rochefoucauld.
