Thank you, Maradnu (or Jack Steeley, or whoever you might be) -- I was doing my last few puzzles before the end of this month's competition -- you know, to pass that extra one or two reachable people ahead of you -- when, with 15 minutes to go, I got this puzzle labled as a proverb with a "x'xxx" word and then a long phrase within parentheses. I sorted out the phrase, "to leave is to die a little" and was left with "x'est" in the line above. Here I was trying to figure out what archaic or biblical English that could be, when I recalled your post and recognized that it was French. You probably saved my 100% this month! Perhaps there should be a separate category, such as "Non-English Phrase."
