Laure Junot Duchesse de Abrantès
“... all fruits do not ripen in one season.”
“... one of the amusements of the Imperial soirées, before the Emperor entered the salon, was to see the Empress turn her ear round, for, by a movement of the muscles of the jaw, she possessed the singular power of making her ear turn round of itself, almost in a circle. I never heard of anyone except Marie Louise who could do this.”
“My mother, with her excellent understanding, knew that prejudice squints when it looks, and lies when it talks.”
Laure Junot Duchesse de Abrantès, French memoirist
(1784 - 1838)
Born: Martin de Permond.
