Three Types of People

Montesquieu (1689-1755), Oeuvres complètes, Tome II: Pensées, Spicilèges, Geographica, Voyages (Paris: Nagel, 1950), p. 398 (Pensées, no. 1317):
Il y a des gens aimables, il y en a d'haïssables & il [y] a une classe plus étendue encore de gens insupportables.
Translated by Henry C. Clark:
There are likeable people, there are detestable people, and there is an even more extensive class of unbearable people.
