Lord Chesterfield
Quotations


Women who are either indisputably beautiful, or indisputably ugly, are best flattered upon the score of their understandings; but those who are in a state of mediocrity are best flattered upon their beauty, or at least their graces: for every woman who is not absolutely ugly, thinks herself handsome.

Be wiser than other people, if you can; but do not tell them so.

Most people enjoy the inferiority of their best friends.

You must embrace the man you hate, if you cannot be justified in knocking him down.

Modesty is the only sure bait when you angle for praise.

Young men are apt to think themselves wise enough, as drunken men are apt to think themselves sober enough.
