Early to Bed

.

“Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”        

“Lever à cinq, diner à neuf,

Souper à cinq, coucher à neuf,

Font vivre dʹans nonante neuf.”


(The older of the two.)


“Lever à six, diner à dix,

Super à six, coucher à dix,

Fait vivre lʹhomme dix fois dix.”
