Famous quotes containing the word nicolas:

    A man is not necessarily intelligent because he has plenty of ideas, any more than he is a good general because he has plenty of soldiers.
    —Sébastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort (1741–1794)

    Education must have two foundations—morality as a support for virtue, prudence as a defence for self against the vices of others. By letting the balance incline to the side of morality, you only make dupes or martyrs; by letting it incline to the other, you make calculating egoists.
    —Sébastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort (1741–1794)

    Man may aspire to virtue, but he cannot reasonably aspire to truth.
    —Sébastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort (1741–1794)
