Conversational theme

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at June 7, 2004 9:48 AM

Last week's quote was from The Confusion, in a conversation between Jean Bart and Bonaventure Rossignol:

Bart shrugged. "It is true, monsieur. All the best merchants of Dunkerque were Huguenots, and after 1865---"
"It is precisely because it is true, that you must not come out and state it," said Rossignol.
"Very well then, monsieur, I vow not to say anything true for the remainder of this conversation. Pray continue!"

Due to its somewhat generic quality, I'm rating this week's quote Formidable; 4 points.

I sourced the quote but only because I cheated and googled it. I knew it sounded familiar though.

Oh man! The week I manage to miss reading the blog, there's a quote i'd surely get straight out. *sad*

I too looked up this quote on google, finding it on the first site. However, I found it rather amusing that the Arcane Gazebo was link #5 in searching for the quote. ^^
