Alexandre Dumas (fils) once came into his father's room and found him reading The Three Musketeers. Dumas (pere) finished the book and looked up at his son and remarked, "You know, that was actually pretty good!".
To someone who insulted him about his mixed-race background: "It is true. My father was a mulatto, my grandmother was a negress, and my great-grandparents were monkeys. In short, sir, my pedigree begins where yours ends."
