“The worst wasted of all days is that during which one has not laughed”
—Nicolas de Chamfort

Nicolas de Chamfort (1741 – 1794) was a French author, known for his sharp wit. He served as secretary to Louis XVI’s Sister Madame Elisabeth. During the French Revolution, Chamfort served briefly as secretary for the Jacobin club. The last year of his life was spent in agony after a botched suicide attempt.
