One Liner Wednesday: En français et en anglais

Si vous me donnez six lignes écrites de la main de la plus honnête des hommes , je vais trouver quelque chose en eux qui le pendre .

If you give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest of men, I will find something in them which will hang him.

Cardinal  Richelieu :1585 – 1642.

This  is  part  of  Linda’GHill‘s One Liner  Wednesday. Here is  the Pingback

Anyone who would like to try it out, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back to Linda’post here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a ping back, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments on Linda’s  page. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it butLinda.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a ping back from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use the tag #1lineWed for more exposure.

Have fun!

    There’s a smart lawyer for you (even though he was a cardinal). I’ve also heard that you can easily get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich.

    l’Éminence rouge – now there was a man who knew what power was. In the 1600’s the Cardinal made decisions and established processes that have had a profound effect on life today. He started the Académie Française that still exists. He was a champion of Champlain and basically was single handedly responsible for the growth of New France in what is now Quebec. Without his influence, Canada would have been all British. It was the french Voyageurs who explored and mapped a great deal of Eastern Canada and established treaties with the First Nations. – at the behest of and under the protection of the Red Cardinal.

    He was a ruthless man Willow who,. like many of his time, did a lot of good things often at the expense of others.

    Cool quote Willow – and very interesting subject. 😀
