The second estate of French society was made up of the nobility. These nobles lived on manors which they had inherited. The second estate consisted of about 2% of the total population who owned about 25% of the total land in France.
These nobles collected dues and rent from the peasants who lived on their lands. This endless source of income allowed them to live a lavish lifestyle.
The man who goes alone can start today; but he who travels with another must wait until the other is ready.
Henry David Thoreau
Roman statues were made with detachable heads, so that one head could be removed and replaced by another.
