C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
Of Society
By Joseph Joubert (1754–1824)
 
Translation of Thomas Wentworth Higginson

TO see the world is to judge the judges.  1
 
  The attention of the listener affords a sort of accompaniment to the music of the talk.  2
 
  If one has two names, he should be addressed by that which is the more beautiful, the sweeter, the more sonorous.  3
 
  Grace copies modesty as politeness copies kindness of heart.  4
