Quote Critique

“There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and this is an idea whose time has come.”

– Victor Hugo (French novelist, playwright, Hunchback of Notre Dame and Les Misérables, 1802-1885)

For the second day in a row, I find myself impressed with the wisdom of fiction writers.  Who needs quotes from academics and experts when those who spin tales provide greater insight into the realm of men?
