Famous quotes containing the word duc:

    However greatly we distrust the sincerity of those we converse with, yet still we think they tell more truth to us than to anyone else.

    Many men are contemptuous of riches; few can give them away.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    Fearlessness is a more than ordinary strength of mind, which raises the soul above the troubles, disorders, and emotions which the prospect of great dangers are used to produce. And by this inward strength it is that heroes preserve themselves in a calm and quiet state, and enjoy a presence of mind and the free use of their reason in the midst of those terrible accidents that amaze and confound other people.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)
