Alexandre Dumas père
b. 7-24-1802; Villers-Cotterêts, France
d. 12-5-1870; Puys

Alexander Dumas, père (which means father) is best known for his numerous historical novels of high adventure such as The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. Dumas had a collaborator, Auguste Maquet, whose contribution of plot outline and character drafts were not acknowledgd publicly but were paid for with generous fees. The elder Alexandre Dumas' reworking of E.T.A. Hoffmann's “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” was used by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky as the basis for his ballet, “The Nutcracker”.

FYI - Dumas, who was also a gourmet and expert cook, was the grandson of a French military officer and an Afro-Caribeean Creole, and the son of an improvished military officer who had gotten on the wrong side of Napolean.

Alexandre Dumas, père quotes ~
• “All for one, one for all.”
• “Business, that's easily defined; it's other people's money.”
• “Friendship consists in forgetting what one gives, and remembering what one receives.”
• “Men's minds are raised to the level of the women with whom they associate.”
• “It is neccessary to have wished for death in order to know how good it is to live.”
• “How is it that little children are so intelligent and men so stupid? It must be education that does it.”
• “One's work may be finished some day, but one's education never.”
• “I prefer rogues to imbeciles, because they sometimes take a rest.”
• “The custom and fashion of today will be the awkwardness and outrage of tomorrow - so arbitrary are these transient laws.”

Alexandre Dumas, fils, was the son of Alexandre Dumas, pere, and his lover, a dressmaker named Marie-Laure-Catherine Labay.

Dumas, fils, was inspired to write his romantic novel, The Lady of the Camellias, by a young courtesan named Marie Duplessis that he met at his father's house. Dumas then adapted the novel to a stage play that inspired Verdi's opera, La Traviata.

Alexandre Dumas, fils quotes ~
• “One has always had a childhood, whatever one becomes.”
• “Women sometimes allow you to be unfaithful to their love; they never allow you to wound their self-esteem.”

Daphne du Maurier
b. 5-13-1907; London, England
d. 4-19-1989; Cornwall

Author and playwright Dame Daphne du Maurier had many of her works adapted to film - Rebecca, Jamaica Inn, “The Birds”, and “Don't Look Now”. (The first three were directed by Alfred Hitchcock.)

Daphne du Maurier ~
• “Writers should be read, but neither seen nor heard.”
• “If only there could be an invention that bottled up a memory, like scent. And it never faded, and it never got stale. And then, when one wanted it, the bottle could be uncorked, and it would be like living the moment all over again.”
• “Happiness is not a possession to be prized, it is a quality of thought, a state of mind.”

b. 6-27-1872; Dayton, OH
d. 2-9-1906

Paul Laurence Dunbar, the son of former slaves, was one of the most prominent figures in American literature at the turn of the twentieth century. Dunbar had published four novels, four collections of short stories, and fourteen books of poetry, as well as numerous songs, plays, and essays in newspaperss and magazines around the world when he passed at the age of thirty-three in 1906. (based on book information from The Complete Stories of Paul Laurence Dunbar)

Paul Laurence Dunbar ~
• “I know why the caged bird sings, ah me, when his wing is bruised and his bosom sore; when he beats his bars and he would be free, it is not a carol of joy or glee, but a prayer that he sends from his heart's deep core.”
• “People are taking it for granted that [the Negro] ought not to work with his head. And it is so easy for these people among whom we are living to believe this; it flatters and satisfies their self-complacency.”
