25 Aphorisms from Chamfort
Another day, another disappointment. Hmm. Is this what being an adult is all about?
Fortunately, I happened to stumble upon my collection of Chamfort quotes and . . . it is usually enough to read just a few in order to already feel better about myself.
I have already written an article about Chamfort before, which, to be sure, very few read—but that’s what you get for writing about an obscure 18th century French writer who had almost nothing good to say about humanity.
