Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont
“One is not stupid if one thinks one has no intelligence. A fool would never realize that.”
“It is neither the handsomeness nor the wit of a husband that makes a wife contented; it is goodness of character, virtue, kindness ...”
“One can overcome pride, anger, gluttony, and laziness in oneself, but the reform of a wicked and envious heart is a miracle.”
“True happiness consists ... in making others happy.”
Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont, French writer
(1711 - 1780)
