We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence.
Roux quotes
Science is for those who learn; poetry, for those who know.
Roux
It is a very rare thing for a man of talent to succeed by his talent.




Roux Joseph quotes
Like those statues which must be made larger than "nature" in order that, viewed from below, or from a distance, they may appear to be of the "natural" size, certain truths must be "strained" in order that the public may form a just idea of them.
Roux Joseph
The happiness which is lacking makes one think even the happiness one has unbearable.
Joseph Roux quotes
Experience comprises illusions lost, rather than wisdom gained.
Joseph Roux
The folly which we might have ourselves committed is the one which we are least ready to pardon in another.
Roux Joseph quotes
Say nothing good of yourself, you will be distrusted; say nothing bad of yourself, you will be taken at your word.
Roux
A fine quotation is a diamond on the finger of a man of wit, and a pebble in the hand of a fool.
