Jacques-Benigne Bossuet
Honor is like the eye, which cannot suffer the least impurity without damage. It is a precious stone, the price of which is lessened by a single flaw.
Bossuet quotes
The greatest weakness of all weaknesses is to fear too much to appear weak.
Only great souls know the grandeur there is in charity.

In the midst of the disguises and artifices that reign among men, it is only attention and vigilance that can save us from surprises.
Bossuet Jacques-Benigne
The inexorable boredom that is at the core of life.
