Jean Giraudoux
Those who weep recover more quickly than those who smile.
Giraudoux quotes
I'm not afraid of death. It's the stake one puts up in order to play the game of life.
Giraudoux
Education makes us more stupid than the brutes. A thousand voices call to us on every hand, but our ears are stopped with wisdom.




Giraudoux Jean quotes
I tell you, sir, the only safeguard of order and discipline in the modern world is a standardized worker with interchangeable parts. That would solve the entire problem of management.
Giraudoux Jean
It's odd how people waiting for you stand out far less clearly than people you are waiting for.
Jean Giraudoux quotes
Faithful women are all alike, they think only of their fidelity, never of their husbands.
Jean Giraudoux
The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that you've got it made.
Giraudoux Jean quotes
The flower is the poetry of reproduction. It is an example of the eternal seductiveness of life.
Giraudoux
When you see a woman who can go nowhere without a staff of admirers, it is not so much because they think she is beautiful, it is because she has told them they are handsome.
Giraudoux Jean
Only the mediocre are always at their best.
Jean Giraudoux
Everyone always dies for his country. If you have lived in it, well and wisely and actively, you die for it too.




Jean Giraudoux quotes
As soon as war is declared it will be impossible to hold the poets back. Rhyme is still the most effective drum.
Jean Giraudoux
There is no better way of exercising the imagination than the study of law. No poet ever interpreted nature as freely as a lawyer interprets the truth.
Giraudoux quotes
There is an invisible garment woven around us from our earliest years; it is made of the way we eat, the way we walk, the way we greet people...
Giraudoux Jean
A golf course is the epitome of all that is purely transitory in the universe; a space not to dwell in, but to get over as quickly as possible.
Giraudoux Jean quotes
In wartime a man is called a hero. It doesn't make him any braver, and he runs for his life. But at least it's a hero who is running away.
Jean Giraudoux
Everyone, when there's war in the air, learns to live in a new element: falsehood.
Jean Giraudoux quotes
Born enemies don't fight. Nations you would say were designed to go to war against each other by their skins, their language, their smell: always jealous of each other, always hating each other they're not the ones who fight. You will find the real antagonists in nations fate has groomed and made ready for the same war.
Jean Giraudoux
A man has only one way of being immortal on earth: he has to forget he is a mortal.
Giraudoux Jean
To win a woman in the first place one must please her, then undress her, and then somehow get her clothes back on her. Finally, so she will allow you to leave her, you've got to annoy her.
