"Je vois que beaucoup de gens meurent, parce qu'ils estiment que la vie ne vaut pas la peine d'être vécue. J'en vois d'autres, qui se font paradoxalement tués pour des idées, pour des illusions, qui leurs donnent une raison de vivre (ce, qu'on appelle une raison de vivre est en même temps une excellente raison de mourir)"
"I witness that a lot of people are dying because they consider that life is not worth living. Paradoxically, I witness other people who are being killed for their ideas, their illusions, which give their existence a sense. (What we call a reason to live is also an excellent reason to die.)"
- Albert Camus, The Myth Of Sisyphus (sampled in Achilles Come Down)

They [the royal family] are under inexpressible affliction and none more so than the King and Queen, who all along expressed apprehension of the load which [Louis XV’s] death would throw upon them and which their youth and inexperience made them so little able to bear. One of the Dauphin’s expressions was ‘It seems to me that the Universe will fall on me.’
–from the May 11, 1774 dispatch of Lord Stormont, the British ambassador to France in 1774.

On peut oublier un visage mais on ne peut tout à fait effacer de sa mémoire la chaleur d'une émotion, la douceur d'un geste, le son d'une voix tendre.

Madame Élisabeth was placed nearest the steps to the scaffold, but she was the last of the twenty-five called to ascend them; she was to see and hear the killing of them all before her turn should come. During that time she never ceased to say the De profundis; she who was about to die prayed for the dead.
--The Life and Letters of Madame Elisabeth de France

On May 10th, 1774, Louis XV died of smallpox at the palace of Versailles.
Madame Campan, writing about the death of Louis XV years later, said of his reign
His reign, peaceful in general, had inherited strength from the power of his predecessor; on the other hand, his own weakness had been preparing misfortune for whoever should reign after him.

Belle: Rumple is a good man, if you ignore all the things he does on purpose and focus on all the things he does by accident.

Her children were ever in her thoughts, wherever she was one or all of them were with her. She watched over their cradles, played with them and like her mother before her, gave most exact directions as to their upbringing to those in charge of them. So much so that Mercy, like Kaunitz before him, complained bitterly that when he had an audience with the Queen one or other of the babies were always under foot.
--Dorothy Moulton Mayer, Marie Antoinette: The Tragic Queen
