La langue française, d’ailleurs, est une eau pure que les écrivains maniérés n’ont jamais pu et ne pourront jamais troubler. Chaque siècle a jeté dans ce courant limpide ses modes, ses archaïsmes prétentieux et ses préciosités, sans que rien surnage de ces tentatives inutiles, de ces efforts impuissants. La nature de cette langue est d’être claire, logique et nerveuse. Elle ne se laisse pas affaiblir, obscurcir ou corrompre. The French language, by the way, is a clear stream that affected writers have never been, and will never be able to ripple. Each century has thrown in this limpid current its fashions, its pretentious archaisms and its preciousness, without anything surfacing from those useless attempts, those powerless efforts. The nature of this language is to be clear, logical and nervous. It won't let itself be weakened, obscured or corrupted.
