Jean de La Bruyere
August 16, 1645 – May 10, 1696
His works brought him many readers and many enemies and his unpopularity was due to the sarcastic portraits of his contemporaries.
“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.”
