Citation du Jour
Ma tête est comme une basse-cour. Quand j'appelle les idées poules pour leur donner du grain, ce sont les idées canes, oies ou dindes, qui accourent.

My head is like a poultry yard. When I call the hen ideas to give them seeds, it's the duck, geese and turkey ideas that run up.
--Jules Renard
