" Nous sommes de vraies taupes dans le champ de la Nature ; nous n'y faisons guère que le trajet de cet animal, et c'est notre orgueil qui donne des bornes à ce qui n'en a point. " " Concluons donc hardiment que l'homme est une machine, et qu'il n'y a dans tout l'univers qu'une seule substance diversement modifiée. " " Il n'y a point d'animal si chétif et si vil en apparence dont la vue ne diminue l'amour-propre d'un philosophe. Si le hasard nous a placés au haut de l'échelle, songeons qu'un rien de plus ou de moins dans le cerveau, où est l'âme de tous les hommes (excepté des leibnitziens), peut sur le champ nous précipiter au bas, et ne méprisons point des êtres qui ont la même origine que nous. " " En général les hommes sont nés méchants ; sans l'éducation, il y en aurait peu de bons ; et encore avec ce secours y en a-t-il beaucoup plus des uns que des autres. Tel est le vice de la conformation humaine. "
