COUNT AXEL VON OXENSTIERNA (OXENSTJERNA OR OXENSTIERN)
Swedish statesman and diplomat
(1583 - 1654)

Learn, my son, with how little wisdom the world is governed.
  [Lat., Nescis, mi fili, quantilla sapientia regitur mundus.]
      - attributed to [Government]

Look about, my son, and see how little wisdom it takes to govern the world.
      - [Wisdom]

The quantity of books in a library is often a cloud of witnesses of the ignorance of the owner.
      - [Books]

We can learn to read and write, but we cannot learn raillery; that must be a particular gift of nature; and, to tell the truth, I esteem him happy who does not wish to acquire it. The character of sarcasm is dangerous; although this quality makes those laugh whom it does not wound, it, nevertheless, never procures esteem.
      - [Ridicule]
