Misanthopy From Molliere

You'll be no friend of mine if you comply
with these false manners of society.
From the bottom of my heart I must reject
that sort of indiscriminate respect.
If someone honours me I want it known
that it's an honour for myself alone.
Flinging love all over's not my line.
The 'buddy' of Mankind's no friend of mine.

The Misanthrope - Moliere (English version: Tony Harrison)
