From a rationalist thinker
Chacun pense suivant la nature du siège sur lequel il est assis. --Alain

An interesting thought from a French essayist, philosopher and professor, Alain (1868-1951): "Everyone thinks according to the nature of the seat on which he sits." By coincidence, this photo was taken in a town in Le Perche, a province in which Alain was born. Alain, whose real name was Emile Chartier, was a popular, concise and succinct rationalist of his time.

un siège:  a seat
la vie de tous les jours:  everyday life
penser:  to think
