My Ta Tas Return To Montesquieu


If one only wished to be happy, this could be easily accomplished; but we wish to be happier than other people, and this is always difficult, for we believe others to be happier than they are.

-As quoted in A Dictionary of Thoughts : Being a Cyclopedia of Laconic Quotations from the Best Authors, Both Ancient and Modern (1891) edited by Tryon Edwards

La corruption de chaque gouvernement commence presque toujours par celle des principes. -De L'Esprit Des Lois (1748)
  • Translation: The deterioration of a government begins almost always by the decay of its principles

"Sugar would be too dear if the plants which produce it were cultivated by any other than slaves."- De L'Esprit Des Lois (1748)

It is impossible for us to suppose these creatures to be men, because, allowing them to be men, a suspicion would follow that we ourselves are not Christians. -De L'Esprit Des Lois (1748)

You have to study a great deal to know a little. -Pensees et Fragments Inedits (1899)
