Delphine de Girardin
Instinct is the nose of the mind.
The best religion is the most tolerant.
Good taste is the modesty of the mind; that is why it cannot be either imitated or acquired.
Business is other people’s money.
Men must stop being jealous of their power and generously allow freedom and responsibility to others. The reward is harmonious families and society.
Proof that they do not understand the republic is that in their fine promises for universal suffrage, they forgot women.
To love the one who loves you, To admire the one who admires you, In a word, to be the idol of one’s idol, Is exceeding the limit of human joy; It is stealing fire from heaven.
