I have laboured carefully, not to mock, lament, or execrate, but to understand human actions.”
Baruch Spinoza - Tractatus politicus

Every man bears the whole stamp of the human condition.”
Michel de Montaigne - Essays

Quote
Perhaps men entertain as many truths as falsehoods; have as many good qualities as bad; feel as many pleasures as pains. But we like to malign human nature, in order to try to raise ourselves above the common level, and to acquire for ourselves the respect of which we strive to rob it. We are so presumptuous, that we imagine we can separate our own personal interests from those of humanity in general, and malign the human race without implicating ourselves. This absurd vanity has filled books of philosophy with diatribes against human nature. Man is in disgrace with all thinkers, who rival one another in accusing him of depravity. But perhaps he may be about to rise again and recover all his virtues; nothing is permanent, and philosophy, like clothes, music, architecture, &c, has its vogues.”
Luc de Clapiers, marquis de Vauvenargues - Reflexions and Maxims
