"Chorus of harvesters: Deja l'aurore Qui se colore " "If you do not leave me alone, I will throw the contents of this water-pitcher at your head." "I never have seen you in such a surly temper. It looks indeed as if your divinity had treated you cruelly."

Des rayons du matin l'horizon se colore, Le jour vient éclairer notre tendre entretien, Mais est-il un sourire aux lèvres de l'aurore. Aussi doux que le tien? M. Mérimée was vile by nature, he must not be blamed for it. With regard to M. de Morny it is otherwise, he was more worthy; there was something of the brigand in him. M. de Morny was courageous.

“O quam placens in colore, O quam fragrans in odore, O quam sapidum in ore, Dolce linguae vinculum. “Felix venter quem intrabis, Felix guttur quod rigabis, Felix os quod tu lavabis; Et beata labia!”
