Whether too high or too stupid that goal remained to be reached... Though in the fight - ignorance vs stupidity, I am on the side of the latter.

Hilarious! I need to start reading more French writing. Flaubert, Balzac, Montaigne, Proust...they've all been on my back-burner for years. Loved Camus and Voltaire!

I didn't care for Madame Bovary, stupid woman, almost as stupid as Anna Karenina. As for Proust - kill me!
I loved Camus & Voltaire too (& Dumas, Hugo & Rabelais). I've got so many books on the back-burner as well.
I do love this quote from Flaubert.

That's one way to promote equality among the voter base and expand it at the same time.
