Hugo Helps

“An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come.”                   Victor Hugo

Born on February 26, 1802, Victor Hugo is best known for his novels Notre-Dame de Paris and Les Misérables. A leading figure of the Romantic Movement, he was also a poet and dramatist. He studied law, but Hugo was always drawn to writing and was encouraged by his mother to follow his passion. Words of wisdom to light our way:

“There is nothing like a dream to create the future.”

“Life is the flower for which love is the honey.”

“Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings.”

“Laughter is sunshine, it chases winter from the human face.”

“The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved.”

“As the purse is emptied, the heart is filled.”

“He who does not weep does not see.”

“People do not lack strength; they lack will.”

“Where no plan is laid, where the disposal of time is surrendered merely to the chance of incidence, chaos will soon reign.”

“Our mind is enriched by what we receive, our heart by what we give.”

“A mother’s arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them.”

“Curiosity is one of the forms of feminine bravery.”

“To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.”

“It is from books that wise people derive consolation in the troubls of life.”

“Thought is the labor of the intellect, reverie, it’s pleasure.”

“He who opens a school door, closes a prison.”

“To love another person is to see the face of God.”

Bravo, Victor! And now, inspired and emboldened, let’s all write on!
