- Till that time, like you and thousands of others, I had lived my life at school or the lycee, with its imaginary troubles and genuine happinesses, which are so pleasant to look back upon. - "The Magic Skin", Honore de Balzac.
- The Lycee Racine will, no doubt, become as important an institution as the Lycee Fenelon, and the speech delivered by M. Spuller on the occasion of its opening was full of the happiest augury for the future. - "Reviews", Oscar Wilde.
- My real position, therefore, was quite unchanged, save that my new lycee was a much larger building, and was called the Ecole de Medecine. - "The Country Doctor", Honore de Balzac.
