Il est bien plus facile d'obéir à son supérieur que de se commander à soi-même; et quand on peut tout ce que l'on veut, il n’est pas aisé de ne vouloir que ce que l'on doit.”
Louis XIV

German
Es ist viel einfacher, seinem Vorgesetzten zu gehorchen, als sich selbst zu befehlen; und wenn man tun kann, was man will, ist es nicht einfach, nur das zu wollen, was man muss.”
