--Says Arsene Houseaye, in a late article: ‘"The English, when they have nothing to say, think and smoke; the Swiss drink and smoke; the Germans drink, dream and smoke; the Spaniards lie down in the shade; the Italians in the sun. The French, when they have nothing to say, say nothing; speech is silver, but silence is gold."’
