Cómo Jean-Louis David dijo una vez cuando retrató a su amigo Marat, por allá en tiempos de la revolución francesa a la muerte de éste, al pintar su retrato (La mort de Marat, o La muerte de Marat) dijo que lo representaría como él lo recordaba:
«Écrivant pour le bonheur du peuple»
(Escribiendo por la felicidad del pueblo)
-----------------------------------------------------------
As Jean-Louis David said one time when he painted his friend Marat in times of the French revolution, when he died and David painted his portrait (La mort de Marat, or, The death of Marat); David said he would represent his friend as he remembered him:
«Écrivant pour le bonheur du peuple»
(Writing for the people's happiness)

20th April 2021 // Crown Princess Victoria sent a video greeting to mark the 50th anniversary of the Swedish Institute in Paris, speaking briefly in French. The Institute is a cultural centre which hosts exhibitions, film screenings, concerts, seminars and a permanent art collection. The Swedish Institute was inaugurated by then Crown Prince Carl Gustaf in 1971.
"As a representative of Sweden – in a family with French ancestry – there is always something special about visiting Paris and France. I personally have several fond memories of various visits to the cultural center in the picturesque Marais neighborhoods. And I'm not the only one. Many Parisians and tourists visit the house every year to take part in exhibitions or perhaps just to try Swedish pastries in the café! Through this Swedish presence in Paris, a special friendship has arisen, between all the people who have met in the house, but above all between France and Sweden as cultural nations."

Tu ne me reverras plus. Je ne reviendrai pas. Poursuis ta vie, je ne m'en mêlerai plus. Ce sera comme si je n'avais jamais existé.

Suddenly, all at once, she knows, knows that he doesn't understand her, that he never will, that he lacks the power to understand such perverseness. And that he can never move fast enough to catch her.

It’s quite a paradox. Versailles is open to all, anyone who wants to can get inside. All one needs is a sword and a hat. At the Trianon, you need the queen’s special token. This is a coin that’s presented to the guard who may or may not grant you access to the esstate. The court of Versailles doesn’t appreciate the idea that they might be refused entry, and hatred towards Marie Antoinette continues to grow.
–Alain Baranton, as quoted in ‘The Secret Versailles of Marie Antoinette’

Je ne veux pas incister sur les personnes en colère. La colère c'est une détresse, une faiblesse et non pas une force. Laissons donc la colère se dissoudre de la meilleure des façons et pensons à positiver nos pensées. Oui à quoi sert la colère si nous pouvons exprimer dans tout autres formes ce qui nous ronge ?
