MORAL REFLECTIONS,

SENTENCES AND MAXIMS

OF

FRANCIS,
DUC DE LA ROCHEFOUCAULD.

NEWLY TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH.

WITH AN INTRODUCTION AND NOTES.

TO WHICH ARE ADDED

MORAL SENTENCES AND MAXIMS OF STANISLAUS,

KING OF POLAND.

As Rochefoucauld his maxims drew
From nature, I believe them true ;
They argue no corrupted mind
In him; the fault is in mankind..

Dr, SWIFT.
“ Among the books in ancient and modern times which record the conclusions of observing men on
the moral qualities of their fellows, a high place should be reserved for the Maxims of Rochefoucauld.”
