JEAN FRANCOIS MARMONTEL
French writer
(1723 - 1794)

If one does not possess what one loves, one should love what one has.

      - quoted by Moore in "Irish Melodies", "The Irish Peasant to His Mistress"
        [Love]

Generally the ridiculous touches the sublime.
  [Fr., En general, le ridicule touche au sublime.]
      - Oeuvres Complettes (V, 188) [Ridicule]
