Premières Papillotes

We’ve already started eating Papillotes even though it’s not really Christmastime yet. I’m a bad American and should wait until after Thanksgiving to do anything Christmas-related, but too late, I’ve already started listening to carols and bought all my gifts. Papillotes are chocolaty goodness though, so I don’t feel bad for eating them. Plus they come with witty (eh, maybe not all of them…) quotes and proverbs.

La Papillote, le chocolat des fêtes de fin d’année

These are the first three quotes I got:

On s’étonne trop de ce qu’on voit rarement et pas assez de ce qu’on voit tous les jours. – Madame de Genlis

Une idée qui n’est pas dangéreuse ne mérite pas d’être appelée une idée. – Oscar Wilde

On ne doit cesser de se taire que quand on a quelque chose à dire qui vaut mieux que le silence. – Abbé Dinouart
