Amidst his many and various portraits, la bruyere has drawn his own with an amiable pride.
la bruyere had just been admitted into the French Academy, in 1693.
Many observations of la bruyere and Rochefoucault—the latter especially—have obtained credit for truth solely from their point.
la bruyere, if I am not mistaken, said that nothing freshens the blood so much as to avoid committing a folly.
The characters of la bruyere are pictures from the life; most of them finely drawn, and highly colored.
This was not quite the opinion formed by Boileau of la bruyere.
la bruyere says, very truly, 'on ne vaut dans ce monde, que ce que l'on veut valoir'.
Remember that very true maxim of la bruyere's, 'Qu'on ne vaut dans se monde que ce qu'on veut valoir'.
la bruyere possessed the same gift of accurate and penetrating observation of character.
