Francois Villon photo

„Prince, I know all, in short,
I know pink cheeks from wan,
I know Death all-devouring,
I know all, save myself.“

—  Francois Villon, Ballade des Menus Propos

Prince, je congnois tout en somme,
Je congnois coulourez et blesmes,
Je congnois Mort qui tout consomme,
Je congnois tout, fors que moy mesmes.
"Ballade des Menus Propos (Ballade of Small Talk)", line 25. (1458).
