“In love, first cured is always best cured.”

 

La Rochefoucauld

I think this is true. If you lose interest first in a love affair you recover faster. You are not forced to deal with hurt pride, self-respect and humiliation. You might even have a reason to end the relationship. Who knows? Any idea?

“Our enemies are nearer the truth in their opinion of us than we

are ourselves”        

La Rochefoucauld

What an interesting observation! Know yourself! The prince suggests that we might listen to our enemies more carefully. They might know us better than we do ourselves. We can learn important lessons from our opponents about our own character. Sounds like it might not be a bad idea to have some enemies. Any thoughts?
