Ce sont eux qui sont beaux. J'ai eu tort ! Oh ! comme je voudrais être comme eux. Je n'ai pas de corne, hélas ! Que c'est laid, un front plat.

    Eugène IONESCO, Rhinocéros
They are the ones who are beautiful. I was wrong! Oh! how I would like to be like them. Alas! I don't have a horn. I would need one or two to enhance my drooping features. Perhaps it will come and I won't be ashamed anymore, I'll be able to find them all again. But it's not growing!

 

Un peuple en état de révolution est invincible.

    Maximin ISNARD, Assemblée nationale, 29 novembre 1791
A people in a state of revolution is invincible.
