QUOTE (Victor Hugo) – Feb 26

February 26, 2014

Victor Hugo

“When I go down to the grave I can say, like many others, ‘I have finished my day’s work!’ But I cannot say, ‘I have finished my life.’ My day’s work will begin again the next morning. The tomb is not a blind alley; it is a thoroughfare! It closes on the twilight, it opens on the dawn! “
~Victor Hugo

“Have no fear of robbers or murderers. They are external dangers, petty dangers. We should fear ourselves. Prejudices are the real robbers; vices the real murderers. The great dangers are within us. Why worry about what threatens our heads or our purses? Let us think instead of what threatens our souls.”
~ Victor Hugo

In honor of Victor Hugo, author of ‘Notre Dame de Paris’ (Hunchback of Notre Dame) and ‘Les Misérables‘, who was born on this day in 1802.
