Jun 02
French novelist. He was the author of erotic writings that gave rise to the term sadism; wrote "Justine."
         
   
F

R
Never lose sight of the fact that all human felicity lies in man's imagination, and that he cannot think to attain it unless he heeds all his caprices. The most fortunate of persons is he who has the most means to satisfy his vagaries.
A
Happiness lies neither in vice nor in virtue; but in the manner we appreciate the one and the other, and the choice we make pursuant to our individual organization.
N
Are wars. . . anything but the means whereby a nation is nourished, whereby it is strengthened, whereby it is buttressed?
K
All, all is theft, all is unceasing and rigorous competition in nature; the desire to make off with the substance of others is the foremost --the most legitimate --passion nature has bred into us. . . and, without doubt, the most agreeable one.
