Moliere Muses

Molière, a French playwright, actor and poet, is widely admired as one of the greatest writers in the French language and all of world literature. He was incredibly versatile and wrote comedies, farces, tragicomedies, and more. Born on January 15 in 1622, he is still going strong! A gathering of his wit and wisdom to inspire us all:

“The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.”

“The trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.”

“The duty of comedy is to correct men by amusing them.”

“It is not only what we do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable.”

“Grammar, which knows how to control even kings.”

“Life is a tragedy to those who feel and a comedy to those who think.”

“Beauty without intelligence is like a hook without bait.”

“People are all alike in their promises. It is only in their deeds that they differ.”

“Things are only worth what you make them worth.”

“Love is a great master. It teaches us to be what we never were.”

“Great is the fortune of he who possesses a good bottle, a good book, and a good friend.”

“People spend most of their time worrying about things that never happen.”

“Man’s greatest weakness is his love for life.”

“It is a fine seasoning for joy to think of those we love.”

“Don’t appear so scholarly, pray. Humanize your talk, and speak to be understood.”

Bravo, Moliere! And now, amused and enlightened, let’s all write on!
