  1. Emmanuel Macrons:

    I often say that if the age relationship were to be inverted, it wouldn't shock anybody, people would find it great, she is beautiful, and the fact that she's 20 years older than I am is terrible, because it is an issue of mockery, of terrible discourtesy. I give in to nothing, but it has taught us a lot, including in politics. We never build ourselves in relation to others' gaze.

  2. Jean de la Bruyere:

    Discourtesy does not spring merely from one bad quality, but from several--from foolish vanity, from ignorance of what is due to others, from indolence, from stupidity, from distraction of thought, from contempt of others, from jealousy.
