The Quotidian, October 29, 2010 ~ The Strongest Thing

“There is one thing stronger than all of the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come.” ~ Victor Hugo (February 26, 1802 to May 22, 1885)

Victor Hugo was a French poet, novelist, essayist, and human rights activist. He is perhaps most well known for his novel Les Misérables, which has been adapted for the stage and for television and which remains popular worldwide.
