Quotation by Pierre Corneille:

But to see him in that way, how shall I be able to judge of his character? I shall merely see his outward appearance, look and mien; but as to the rest, Isabella, what trust can I put in it? These flattering mirrors reflect imperfectly what is within; the appearance is often a gay deceiver; what defects of mind lie hidden under its beauty!
And what fair exteriors conceal base souls! The eyes, no doubt, in this important choice of a husband, must be the first to act; but to trust everything to them is to put everything to hazard: he who wishes to live at ease ought not to displease them, but without being a slave, he ought to reckon it enough to give them satisfaction, to yield if they object, but not assent if they agree, and to allow the fire of love to be lighted up from other causes. This chain, which lasts as long as our life, and ought to excite more fear than envy, if we do not take care, often joins opposite to opposite, and the dead to the living: and for myself, since it is necessary that it give me a master, before accepting him I should like to know him, but to know him in his inmost soul.
