Zitat des Tages von Jean de La Fontaine:
Everyone has his faults which he continually repeats: neither fear nor shame can cure them.
A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it.
It is twice the pleasure to deceive the deceiver.
Be advised that all flatterers live at the expense of those who listen to them.
Every journalist owes tribute to the evil one.
We like to see others, but don't like others to see through us.
Nothing is more dangerous than a friend without discretion; even a prudent enemy is preferable.
It is a double pleasure to deceive the deceiver.
Patience and time do more than strength or passion.
Everyone calls himself a friend, but only a fool relies on it; nothing is commoner than the name, nothing rarer than the thing.
Sadness flies away on the wings of time.
Dressed in the lion's skin, the ass spread terror far and wide.
But the shortest works are always the best.
Neither wealth or greatness render us happy.
Every flatterer lives at the expense of him who listens to him.
In short, Luck's always to blame.
The strongest passion is fear.
We must laugh before we are happy, for fear we die before we laugh at all.
Rather suffer than die is man's motto.
Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.
There is nothing useless to men of sense.
Better a living beggar than a buried emperor.
The argument of the strongest is always the best.
One often has need of one, inferior to himself.
Death never takes the wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go.
Everyone believes very easily whatever they fear or desire.
Rare as is true love, true friendship is rarer.
A hungry stomach cannot hear.
Nothing is as dangerous as an ignorant friend; a wise enemy is to be preferred.
By the work one knows the workman.
It is impossible to please all the world and one's father.
People who make no noise are dangerous.
Luck's always to blame.
There is no road of flowers leading to glory.
People must help one another; it is nature's law.
The fastidious are unfortunate; nothing satisfies them.
