Francois de La Rochefoucauld — French Writer born on September 15, 1613, died on March 17, 1680

François VI, Duc de La Rochefoucauld, Prince de Marcillac was a noted French author of maxims and memoirs. It is said that his world-view was clear-eyed and urbane, and that he neither condemned human conduct nor sentimentally celebrated it... (wikipedia)

True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about and few have seen.
A true friend is the greatest of all blessings, and that which we take the least care of all to acquire.

What men have called friendship is only a social arrangement, a mutual adjustment of interests, an interchange of services given and received; it is, in sum, simply a business from which those involved propose to derive a steady profit for their own self-love.
