GUY DE FAUR, LORD OF PIBRAC
French jurist and poet
(1529 - 1584)

Cease not to learn until thou cease to live;
  Think that day lost wherein thou draw'st no letter,
    To make thyself learneder, wiser, better.
      [Fr., Jusqu'au cercuil (mon fils) vueilles apprendre,
        Et tien perdu le jour qui s'est passe,
          Si tu n'y as quelque chose ammasse,
            Pour plus scavant et plus sage te rendre.]
      - Collections of Quatrains (no. 31),
        translated by Joshua Sylvester [Day]
