By Madame de Montespan

All the death-in-life of a convent

Always sold at a loss which must be
sold at a given moment

Ambition puts a thick bandage over the

And then he would go off, laughing in
his sleeve

Armed with beauty and sarcasm

Cannot reconcile themselves to what

Conduct of the sort which cements and
revives attachments

Console me on the morrow for what had
troubled me to-day

Cuddlings and caresses of decrepitude

Depicting other figures she really
portrays her own

Domestics included two nurses, a
waiting-maid, a physician

Extravagant, without the means to be so

Grow like a dilapidated house; I am
only here to repair myself

Happy with him as a woman who takes her
husband's place can be

Hate me, but fear me

He contradicted me about trifles

He was not fool enough for his place

I myself being the first to make merry
at it (my plainness)

In the great world, a vague promise is
the same as a refusal

In Rome justice and religion always
rank second to politics

In ill-assorted unions, good sense or
good nature must intervene

In England a man is the absolute
proprietor of his wife

Intimacy, once broken, cannot be

It is easier to offend me than to
deceive me

Jealous without motive, and almost
without love

Kings only desire to be obeyed when
they command

Knew how to point the Bastille cannon
at the troops of the King

Laws will only be as so many black
lines on white paper

Love-affair between Mademoiselle de la
Valliere and the King

Madame de Sevigne

Madame de Montespan had died of an
attack of coquetry

Not show it off was as if one only
possessed a kennel

Permissible neither to applaud nor to

Poetry without rhapsody

Present princes and let those be
scandalised who will!

Respectful without servility

Satire without bitterness

Says all that he means, and resolutely
means all that he can say

She awaits your replies without

Situations in life where we are
condemned to see evil done

Talent without artifice

That Which Often It is Best to Ignore

The King replied that "too much was too

The monarch suddenly enough rejuvenated
his attire

The pulpit is in want of comedians;
they work wonders there

Then comes discouragement; after that,

There is an exaggeration in your sorrow

These liars in surplice, in black
cassock, or in purple

Time, the irresistible healer

Trust not in kings

Violent passion had changed to mere

Weeping just as if princes had not got
to die like anybody else

Went so far as to shed tears, his most
difficult feat of all

What they need is abstinence,
prohibitions, thwartings

When women rule their reign is always
stormy and troublous

When one has seen him, everything is

When one has been pretty, one imagines
that one is still so

Wife: property or of furniture, useful
to his house

Wish you had the generosity to show,
now and again, less wit

Women who misconduct themselves are
pitiless and severe

Won for himself a great name and great
wealth by words

Would you like to be a cardinal?  I can
manage that

You know, madame, that he generally
gets everything he wants
