Sèbastien-Roch Nicolas Chamfort (1740-1794)

French playwright and conversationalist, famous for his wit, whose maxims became popular bywords during the French Revolution.
An illegitimate child raised by a grocer's wife, Chamfort was educated as a free scholar and then supported by a worldly Parisian society that appreciated his conversational genius.
