Three Portraits

Denis Diderot
Jean-Jacques Rousseau
François-Marie Arouet (Voltaire)

It is interesting to see the faces of the famous people that survived history's evolution. The  conversations these three gentlemen must have had!

So, today is day 25 of NaPoWriMo, and because it's weekend, I will just repeat a former clerihew. In my defense I can say that I have three famous names, not just one:

Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Annoyed Voltaire and Diderot

He scoffed at superfluous luxuries without tact.

Said he: “Read The Social Contract!”
