Educating the passengers

A great personality in the field of Literature; at her palace, Coppet, she used to have a "salon" where she invited the most important European geniuses of her time.
Born in Paris in 1766, she was of Swiss origin. She died in Paris in 1817. 

Tempus fugit

Time is insubstantial, time is always there. We never have enough of it, time is with us all the time. And yet "Tempus fugit". Time flees, time flies, time is evasive. Time is important, time is nothing when one compares it to eternity.
