EXAMPLES
D'Artagnan, dont nous connaissons l'érudition, ne sourcilla pas plus à cette citation qu'à celle que lui avait faite M. de Tréville à propos des présents qu'il prétendait que d'Artagnan avait reçus de M. de Buckingham.
D’Artagnan, whose erudition we are well acquainted with, evinced no more interest on hearing this quotation than he had at that of M. de Treville in allusion to the gifts he pretended that d’Artagnan had received from the Duke of Buckingham.
Et Julien dut essuyer la citation tout entière.
And Julien was obliged to listen to the quotation to the end.
Et selon une citation tirée du site Internet de sa fondation : « quand j’étais malade, je ne voulais pas mourir.
A quotation on his foundation’s website reads “When I was sick, I didn’t want to die.
Cette dérision du premier des sacrements indigna l’abbé Bournisien; le père Bovary répondit par une citation de la _Guerre des dieux_, le curé voulut partir; les dames suppliaient; Homais s’interposa; et l’on parvint à faire rasseoir l’ecclésiastique, qui reprit tranquillement, dans sa soucoupe, sa demi-tasse de café à moitié bue.
This mockery of the first of the sacraments made the Abbe Bournisien angry; old Bovary replied by a quotation from "La Guerre des Dieux"; the cure wanted to leave; the ladies implored, Homais interfered; and they succeeded in making the priest sit down again, and he quietly went on with the half-finished coffee in his saucer.
