Quote of the Day

"Quelque chose que sans un pli, sans une tache,
J'emporte malgré vous,
et c'est. . .
Mon panache."

From Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand

Cyrano is defiant in the face of Death, scornful of all his old nemeses, when he says his last lines in Rostand's play:

"One thing that, without stain or fault,
I bear away despite you,
and it is...
my panache."
