Example text

La Rochefoucauld’s influence can also be seen in the work of many subsequent philosophers and moralists: Voltaire and Nietzsche are particularly obvious examples. Yet it can be identified in some more surprising quarters. Scholars have traced the impact of La Rochefoucauld on the thinking of Marcel Proust and Charles de Gaulle. Even in Balzac there are sentences that could scarcely have been written but for the Maxims: ‘We are accustomed to judge others by our own standard; and if we absolve them of our faults indulgently enough, we condemn them severely for lacking our merits,’ in Le Médecin de campagne (1833), for instance.

H. AND A. M. BLACKMORE and FRANCINE GIGUÈRE OXFORD WORLD’S CLASSICS COLLECTED MAXIMS AND OTHER REFLECTIONS FRANÇOIS DE LA ROCHEFOUCAULD, a member of a prominent French aristocratic family, was born in Paris in 1613. He was married at the age of 14 and took part in his first military campaign the following year. For the next quarter of a century he participated actively in military life, supporting the interests of the hereditary French aristocracy not only against foreign armies, but at times also against the king and his chief minister (Richelieu under Louis XIII, Mazarin under Louis XIV).

A maxim aimed in manuscript primarily at ‘the French’ addresses itself simply to ‘men’ in the final edition (v: 14); a maxim initially concerned with ‘all men’ subsequently has more limited reference (1: 174). La Rochefoucauld’s uses of on (‘one’), nous (‘we’), and vous (‘you’) contain similar ambiguities; sometimes, indeed, he glides from one to another in the course of a single maxim, as if they were interchangeable. A remark may be qualified with ‘often’, ‘usually’, ‘almost always’, ‘perhaps’, or ‘it seems’.
