Original Text:
TÉLÉMAQUE INTERROGÉ PAR LES SAGES.
A l'aspect imposant de ces nobles ganaches,
Télémaque en finaud jura ses plus grands Dieux,
Qu'il voudrait échanger ses naissantes moustaches
Contre la majesté de leurs front radieux.

(Fénélon, Livre XXIV.).


Translation:
TELEMACHUS INTERROGATED BY THE SAGES.
At the imposing view of these noble blockheads
Telemachus is struck with awe
He knows all the answers but doesn't remember
but that's how school is, isn't it so?

(Fénélon book XXIV)
