Victor Hugo
1802 - 1885

Novelist, poet, and dramatist, author of Notre-Dame de Paris (1831) and Les MisÚrables (1862)

Liberation is not deliverance.

1862 - from Les MisÚrables
Greater than the tread of mighty armies is the idea whose time has come.

Great blunders are often made, like large ropes, of a multitude of fibers.

Strong and bitter words indicate a weak cause.
