When Louis XV was just a lil' tyke, the regent of France, the Duc d'Orleans, was quite the womanizer. He was also famous for not being too particular about the looks or social class of those he bedded. When his mother once attempted to take him to task for this, he replied:

"Bah, Maman, dans la nuit, touts les chats sont gris."

"At night, all cats are grey."
