What is your favourite French phrase; per­haps some­thing that has struck a chord or stayed in your mem­ory?

On ne peut pas avoir le beurre, l’ar­gent du beurre et le sourire de la crémière! Lit­er­ally mean­ing ‘you can­not have the but­ter, the money from the but­ter and the smile of the dairy woman’ – in other words, you can’t al­ways get what you want!
