Political Economy (or Maastricht Treaty)
“ Her husband who does not earn anything
Does not give her ther means
To have everything she demands ;
At last she does a faux pas
And in order to have Holland
She gives the Netherlands.”
Military economy (or the storks are back)
“ This place so hot ... And who could set alight in one moment the detonator cords of all
the arquebuses. ”
“ That I lack gravity
That I cannot be read in class ?”
“ Good things, middling ones, even more bad ones
What can I do about it ? Thus it goes with every book. ”
Morality, by Pierre Le Loyer (born in 1550)
“ The stallion follows the mare, the bull loves the cow
And the ram attaches himself to the ewe alone ”.
