Francois de la Rochefoucauld, the French writer, aphorist and exemplar of the learned nobility (he was a duke, and bore the title of Prince de Marcillac until the age of 38), died on this day in 1680.

Good advice is something a man gives when he is too old to set a bad example
He who lives without folly isn't so wise as he thinks
We all have strength enough to endure the misfortunes of others
We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others that in the end we become disguised to ourselves
