Un hombre honesto etc


Explanation:
Un hombre honesto es un hombre confuso/enmarañdo

La primera implica simple confusión, y la segunda más complicado (enmêlé)

Necsecito comprobar el Michel - me suena como el tío de las dietas, pero no estoy del todo segura

Explanation:
Ahora sé que no es el de las combinaciones de comida! Cuando me enseñaron sobre Erasmus, pena que no incluyeron a Michel! Me pareció muy sencilla la citación para ser de un erudito.

un hombre dudoso


Explanation:
Soudain, une pensée: Je ne connais pas cette phrase de Montaigne ni le contexte de sa phrase, mais ça me rappelle d'une autre expression française: "trop poli pour être honnete", ce qui sugère que l'excess de gentilesse ne peut que cacher des mauvaises intentions. Peut être c'est ça que Montaigne en pensait avec "mêlé": "un hombre honesto es un hombre de dudoso carácter". Ci-dessous, un link à propos de Jesus et Pilate...était Pilat un hônnete homme ou avait-il à l'avance des mauvaises intentions? À toi de choissir!!! Salut :)
