Five quotes by François Rabelais

François Rabelais (born in Chinon between 1483 and 1494; died Paris 1553) was a French Renaissance writer, physician, Renaissance humanist, monk and Greek scholar. He is primarily known as a writer of satire, of the grotesque, and of bawdy jokes and songs. His literary legacy is such that the word Rabelaisian has been coined as a descriptive inspired by his work and life. Merriam-Webster defines the word as describing someone or something that is “marked by gross robust humor, extravagance of caricature, or bold naturalism”.
 A mother-in-law dies only when another devil is needed in hell. 
 I have nothing, owe a great deal, and the rest I leave to the poor. 
Je n'ai rien vaillant; je dois beaucoup; je donne le reste aux pauvres.
 I never follow the clock: hours were made for man, not man for hours. 
Les heures sont faictez pour l'homme, et non l'homme pour les heures.
 The more I drink, the thirstier I become. 
Plus j'en bois, plus j'ai de soif.
 There are more old drunkards than old doctors.
