"Most people know no other way of judging men's worth but by the vogue they are in, or the fortunes they have met with"

- Francois de La Rochefoucauld

About this Quote

This quote by Francois de La Rochefoucauld talks with the propensity of individuals to judge the well worth of others based on their appeal or financial success. He suggests that individuals commonly neglect the true worth of a person, instead depending on exterior elements to identify their worth. This is a common trouble in society, as individuals are typically evaluated by their product properties or social standing rather than their personality or success. This quote serves as a tip to look beyond the surface and also to identify real worth of a person. It is necessary to remember that a person's well worth is not established by their appeal or financial success, however by their personality and also the payments they make to society.
