On high rank public servants of the state...

"Les Hauts Fonctionnaires font les meilleurs maris, ma chère :

quand ils rentrent le soir à la maison, ils ne sont jamais fatigués et ont déjà lu les journaux."

... in English:

"High rank public servants make for the best husbands, my dear :

when, in the evening, they get back home from work, they are never tired and they have already read the newspapers."

Georges Clemenceau
