A Quote by François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld on admiration, change, hope, and pleasure

What makes us like new acquaintances is not so much any weariness of our old ones, or the pleasure of change, as disgust at not being sufficiently admired by those who know us too well, and the hope of being more so by those who do not know so much of us.

Duc de La Rochefoucauld (1613 - 1680)
