“To be capable of respect is almost as rare as to be worthy of it.”

~ Joseph Joubert

Joubert was a French essayist and moralist who lived from 1754 until 1854 and never published a thing. His musings on life and other issues were published in several volumes  posthumously….hmmm… an artist needs death to become known…..puorquoi?

other quotes by Joubert:

To teach is to learn twice.

All gardeners live in beautiful places because they make them so.

Justice is the truth in action.

Ask the young. They know everything.

The mind’s direction is more important than its progress.

Imagination is the eye of the soul.

and my favorite because I often feel it…

When I see young people such as those of our day, I think that Heaven wishes to destroy the world
