C’est peut-être l’entreprise tricolore la plus connue au monde mais aussi l’une des plus influentes. En 2019, le prestigieux cabinet britannique spécialisé Brand Finance l’a désignée marque française la plus “puissante” au monde devant Free et Michelin. Cette année-là, la multinationale française se paie même le luxe de placer trois autres de ses marques dans le top 10 : Lancôme (5e), Garnier (6e) et Elsève (9e).

There is a unique takeaway from literature’s first work of science fiction that is in need of use.

The sentences dragged on and the words were annoying. We counted how many pages were left. We sludged through each chapter.

The great academic tragedy of our hatred for homework: we let incredible lessons sail right over our heads. We groaned and detested absolute masterpieces.

You probably grossly misunderstand Frankenstein. But it isn’t entirely your fault.
