Francois de La Rochefoucauld Quotes
Showing: 71 - 80 Francois de La Rochefoucauld Quotes of 286

Eloquence lies as much in the tone of the voice, in the eyes, and in the speaker's manner, as in his choice of words.
True eloquence consists in saying all that should be said, and that only.
The head does not know how to play the part of the heart for long.
Our enemies approach nearer to truth in their judgments of us than we do ourselves.
