Plutôt souffrir que mourir,
C'est la devise des hommes.

Jean de La Fontaine

La plupart des gens ne jugent des hommes que par la vogue qu'ils ont, ou par leur fortune.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Si on juge de l'amour par la plupart de ses effets, il ressemble plus ? la haine qu'? l'amitié.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Il n'est pas si dangereux de faire du mal ? la plupart des hommes que de leur faire trop de bien.

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

First, then, God, being all-just, wishes to do justice; being all-wise, knows what justice is; being all-powerful, can do justice. Why then injustice? Either your God can do justice and won't or doesn't know what justice is, or he cannot do it. The immediate reply is: "What appears to be injustice in our eyes, in the sight of omniscience may be justice. God's ways are not our ways."
Oh, but if he is the all-wise pattern, they should be; what is good enough for God ought to be good enough for man; but what is too mean for man won't do in a God.
