FRANCOIS VILLON
French poet
(1431 - 1484)

Blonde or brunette, this rhyme applies, happy is he who knows them not.
      - [Women]

Here in this place sleeps one whom love
  Caused, through great cruelty to fall.
    A little scholar, poor enough,
      When Francois Villon men did call.
        No scrap of land or garden small
          He owned. He gave his goods away,
            Table and trestles, baskets--all;
              For God's sake say for him this Lay.
      - his own epitaph [Epitaphs]

I know everything except myself.
      - [Knowledge]

We were two and had but one heart between us.
      - [Love]

But where are the snows of yester year?
  [Fr., Mais ou sont les neiges d'antan?]
      - Ballade des Dames du Temps Jadis [Snow]

Good talkers are only found in Paris.
      - Des Femmes de Paris (II) [Talk]

My days are gone a-wandering.
  [Fr., Mes jours s'en sont allez errant.]
      - Grand Testament [Day]
