Jean de La Bruyere

August 16, 1645 – May 10, 1696

Jean de La Bruyere was a French essayist and moralist.

His works brought him many readers and many enemies and his unpopularity was due to the sarcastic portraits of his contemporaries.


"There is no road too long to the man who advances deliberately and without undue haste;
there are no honors too distant to the man who prepares himself for them with patience."

Jean de la Bruyere

"The pleasure we feel in criticizing robs us from being moved by very beautiful things."

Jean de la Bruyere

"Those who make the worst use of their time are the first to complain of its shortness."

Jean de la Bruyere

Secrets

"A man can keep another's secret better than his own. A woman her own better than others."

Jean de la Bruyere

"Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future."

Jean de la Bruyere

“Love seizes on us suddenly, without giving warning, and our disposition or our weakness favors the surprise; one look, one glance from the fair, fixes and determines us.

Friendship, on the contrary, is a long time forming; it is of slow growth, through many trials and months of familiarity.”

Jean de La Bruyere

“Two persons cannot long be friends if they cannot forgive each other`s little failings.”
Jean de La Bruyere
