I don't think anyone is going to get this - it was Ogden Nash. Which French playwright and philosopher stated that "L'enfer, c'est les autres" or "Hell is other people" in a 1944 play?

"The word "souvenir" has, of course, slightly extended itself in meaning until it now denotes almost anything either breakable or useless; but even today, ninety per cent of the items covered by the word are forgettable objects in which cigarettes can be left to go stale."
