Jean Antoine Petit-Senn
"Not what we have, but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance."
According to the 11th edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica:
Jean Antoine Petit-Senn (1792–1870) was a thorough Genevese and a biting satirist, a pensive poet, the Genevese La Bruyère, as he liked to be called, but was not fully appreciated till after his death, when his widely scattered writings were brought together.
