My all-time favorite French expression: La culture c'est comme la confiture, moins on en a, plus on l'étale. Culture is like confiture, the less one has, the more one spreads it around. Some attribute this to French writer Françoise Sagan (1935-2004), others say that it was an anonymous slogan that appeared on graffitied walls during the May 1968 demonstrations in Paris.

la pensée du jour:  the thought for the day
étaler:  to spread out or on
une brioche:  brioche, a sweet yeast bread

Qu'ils mangent de la brioche!  Let them eat cake!
