ARMAND JEAN DU PLESSIS DUC DE RICHELIEU
French cardinal and statesman
(1585 - 1642)

A virtuous and well-disposed person, like a good metal, the more he is fired, the more he is fined; the more he is opposed, the more he is approved: wrongs may well try him, and touch him, but cannot imprint in him any false stamp.

Friendship is the medicine for all misfortune; but ingratitude dries up the fountain of all goodness.
      - [Friendship]

If you give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest of men, I will find something in them which will hang him.

      - attributed to,
        by Fournier "L'Esprit dans l'Historie", ch. XLI, p. 255 (1883)
        [Pen]

Ingratitude dries up the fountain of all goodness.
      - [Ingratitude]

To know to dissemble is the knowledge of kings.
      - [Artifice]

Wise judges are we of each other!
      - [Judgment]

Artifice is allowable in deceiving a rival; we may employ everything against our enemies.
  [Lat., Pour tromper un rival l'artifice est permis;
    On peut tout employer contre ses ennemis.]
      - Les Tuileries [Artifice : Enemies]

To know how to dissemble is the knowledge of kings.
  [Fr., Savoir dissimuler est le savoir des rois.]
      - Miranne [Royalty]
