A Quote From The Royal Succession

Apparently The Royal Succession by Maurice Druon (among other works by Mr. Druon) in the English version is difficult to find online at a reasonable price.  Although my copy cost me a whopping $.27 (at a used bookstore or thrift shop), according to Amazon, prices range from $65.00 (first American edition) to $18.91 for a paperback edition. 

A quote from the novel:

"Days lived, whether full or empty, whether busy or serene, are but days gone by, and the ashes of the past weigh the same in every hand."
