"Evil be to those who evil thinks", the nose od Pinocchio

"Honni soit qui mal y pense" (= "Evil be to those who evil thinks") is the famous phrase of Edward III (king of England) in French (his mother was French) when his barons mocked him for he had picked up the garter of the Countess of Salisbury his mistress, "those who laugh now will be very proud to wear at their buttonhole this piece of tissue." This is how was created the Order of the Garter.
.. the picture is called "Pinocchio's nose" (which grows when he lies -in the novel-). Or "a man who reduces".
