Famous quotes containing the word french:

    I don’t see what for French Canadians to go to defend a bunch of Poles. I don’t get that at all. I don’t see what they mean to us. And they all one kind government much same like the other.
    Emeric Pressburger (1902–1988)

    He that is born to be hanged shall never be drowned.
    —14th-century French proverb, first recorded in English in A. Barclay, Gringore’s Castle of Labour (1506)

    The only thing that one really knows about human nature is that it changes. Change is the one quality we can predicate of it. The systems that fail are those that rely on the permanency of human nature, and not on its growth and development. The error of Louis XIV was that he thought human nature would always be the same. The result of his error was the French Revolution. It was an admirable result.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)
