Famous quotes containing the words friendship and/or treaty:

    Judgement holds in me a magisterial seat, at least it carefully tries to. It lets my feelings go their way, both hatred and friendship, even the friendship I bear myself, without being changed and corrupted by them.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)

    He was then in his fifty-fourth year, when even in the case of poets reason and passion begin to discuss a peace treaty and usually conclude it not very long afterwards.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)
