Famous quotes containing the word french:

    Much that is urged on us new parents is useless, because we didn’t really choose it. It was pushed on us. It—whether it be Raffi videos, French lessons, or the complete works of Brazelton—might be just right for you and your particular child. But it is only right when you feel that it is. You know your family best; you decide.
    Sonia Taitz (20th century)

    If thou fill thy brain with Boston and New York, with fashion and covetousness, and wilt stimulate thy jaded senses with wine and French coffee, thou shalt find no radiance of wisdom in the lonely waste of the pinewoods.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Vivian Rutledge: So you do get up. I was beginning to think perhaps you worked in bed like Marcel Proust.
    Philip Marlowe: Who’s he?
    Vivian: You wouldn’t know him. French writer.
    Marlowe: Come into my boudoir.
    William Faulkner (1897–1962)
