GILLES DE CAUX
French poet
(1682 - 1733)

What is it [the world], in fact? A glass which shines, which a breath can destroy, and which a breath has produced.
  [Fr., Quel est-il en effet? C'est un verre qui luit.
    Qu'un souffle peut detruitre, et qu'un souffle a produit.]
      - L'Horloge de Sable,
        in D'Israeli's "Curiosities of Literature--Imitations and Similarities"
        [World]
