Pierre Corneille Quotes
Brief author info: Pierre Corneille (1606-1684) French playwright.
Showing: 1 - 10 Pierre Corneille Quotes of 20
Time often serves to justify a deed Which seems at first unjustifiable.
He should be envied Who when his strength is spent lays down his life. Old age reserves a melancholy fate For noble souls before their life is done.
Do your duty, and leave the rest to the gods.
All evils are equal when they are extreme.
Good fortune leads one to the highest glory, But to renounce it calls for equal courage.
The fires of hate, compressed within the heart, Burn fiercer and will break at last in flame.
Kindness acts Not always as you think; a hated hand Renders it odious.
Liberty may be of no more use Than stirring up the flame of civil wars; Then, by disorder fatal to the world, One wants no king, the other wants no equal.
Love is a tyrant sparing none.
Love lives on hope, and dies when hope is dead; It is a flame which sinks for lack of fuel.
