Knowledge, before the discovery of printing, was transmitted by proverbs, quotes, maxims ... Maxims which, at the time of the "moralists", even became a literary genre in which Vauvenargues and La Bruyère distinguished themselves, La Rochefoucauld, Chamfort, Joubert, up to Paul-Jean Toulet and Jules Renard ... These sayings and proverbs, these sentences and maxims, reflections of the humanism of the Age of Enlightenment, or testimonies of the uncertainties of the soul, summed up climatic whims, or sly comparisons between medieval bestiary and human behavior, have been brought together here thematically. This simple and practical dictionary is an essential complement for those looking for a reference to enhance a speech, an essay or a reflection.
