Who Was Jean-Jacques Rousseau?
This quote means that if someone insults you, they are trying to justify a side of a case destined to fail, the side of a case based on opinion, and rude opinion, at that.
"Courage should not be confused with arrogance and rudeness, both sources and results are different."
It means that courage is very different from boasting and foolhardiness, it does not come from the desire to prove yourself but from selflessness.
"Take the course opposite to cushy, and you will almost always do well."
This means that if you take the path less traveled, you will come out better for it.
"No man has natural authority over his fellow men."
This quote means that no person is born in a higher place than another human being, one person cannot be more respected tan another by birth, they must earn it.
"Patience is bitter, bit its fruit is sweet."
It is hard to be patient, but it pays off.
