Self-will so ardent and active that it will break a world to pieces to make a stool to sit on.Richard Cecil
Pierre Charron (1541-1603) was a French philosopher.
- Despair is like forward children, who, when you take away one of their playthings, throw the rest into the fire for madness. It grows angry with itself, turns its own executioner, and revenges its misfortunes on its own head.
- The true science and study of man is man.
