NEWLY TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH.
WITH AN INTRODUCTION AND NOTES.
MORAL SENTENCES AND MAXIMS OF STANISLAUS,
"As Rochefoucauld his maxims draw
From nature, I believe them true;
They argue no corrupted mind
In him; the fault is in mankind."
"Among the books in ancient and modern themes which record the conclusion of observing men on the moral qualities of their fellows, a high place should be reserved for the Maxims of Rochefoucauld."
