Citation du Jour
Les descriptions de femme ressemblent à des vitrines de bijoutier. On
y voit des cheveux d'or, des yeux émeraude, des dents perles, des
lèvres de corail.
Descriptions of women are like a jewelers' window. In them we see golden hair, emerald eyes, pearly white teeth and coral lips. --Jules Renard
