Philosophical contemplations of a lover of quiet pleasures. A small solitary arm of the Marne, not too much water, some waterlilies and a large number of frogs, he's like a plank for an hour, and this is what makes a man happy
(Un philosopher amateur des plaisirs tranquilles. Un petit bras solitaire de la Marne, pas trop d'eau, quelques nénuphars et un grand nombre de grenouilles, faire la planche pendant une heure, et voilà un homme heureux)
