“I almost had to wait.”
— LOUIS XIV
“J’ai failli attendre.”
This refers to an occasion when a coach he had ordered arrived just in time.
It is disputed whether Louis XIV actually said that but I think it represents extremely well the public image of the absolute monarch he was going for, so I’m keeping it.
