Alain-Rene Lesage
A smart daughter ought not to examine her future husband too closely. She ought to consider it a pleasure to find one agreeable to her father.
Lesage Alain-Rene quotes
The pleasure of talking is the inextinguishable passion of a woman, coeval with the act of breathing.

Facts are stubborn things.

Plain as a pike-staff.

I don't know any more than you what the future will hold. But my point of view is different. You see despair and I see cause for hope. I read the future in a way that is more agreeable than you do.
