More From Francois Fenelon
- "Do not make best friends with a melancholy sad soul. They always are heavily loaded, and you must bear half."
- "A good historian is timeless; although he is a patriot, he will never flatter his country in any respect."
- "There is a set of religious, or rather moral, writings which teach that virtue is the certain road to happiness, and vice to misery in this world. A very wholesome and comfortable doctrine, and to which we have but one objection, namely, that it is not true."
