Chocolate will revive you

Madame de Sevigne
Marie de Rabutin-Chantal, marquise de Sévigné
(5 February 1626 – 17 April 1696) was a French aristocrat, remembered for her letter-writing.
Most of her letters, celebrated for their wit and vividness, were addressed to her daughter.
Her letters provide much insight into the social mores and customs of 17th-century French life.

"If you are not feeling well, if you have not slept, chocolate will revive you. But you have no chocolate! I think of that again and again! My dear, how will you ever manage?"
- Marquise de Sévigné

Isn't that a great quote?  Thank goodness for chocolate.  Clink on the link for chocolate recipes, and click on the link for the Marquise de Sévigné if you would like more information about this remarkable woman who is so well-known for her letters, especially to her daughter.
