A little girl without a doll is almost as unhappy, and quite as impossible, as a woman without children. from chapter VIII of Les Miserables ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
So long as there shall exist, by reason of law and custom, a social condemnation which, in the midst of civilization, artificially creates a hell on earth, and complicates with human fatality a destiny that is divine; so long as the three problems of the century - the degradation of man by the exploitation of his labour, the ruin of women by starvation and the atrophy of childhood by physical and spiritual night are not solved; so long as, in certain regions, social asphyxia shall be possible; in other words and from a still broader point of view, so long as ignorance and misery remain on earth, there should be a need for books such as this. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
And do you know Monsieur Marius? I believe I was a little in love with you. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
Sad fate! he would enter into sanctity only in the eyes of God when he returned to infamy in the eyes of men. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
Table talk and Lovers' talk equally elude the grasp; Lovers' Talk is clouds, Table Talk is smoke.
Les Miserables ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
What greater flood can there be than the flood of ideas? How quickly they submerge all that they set out to destroy, how rapidly do they create terrifying depths? ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
He was fond of books, for they are cool and sure friends ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
Les Miserables is one of my favorite stories. ~ Larry King
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Larry King
Les Miserables is first of all the product of a varied experience of the world, containing the perceptions of an entire life. And this image of reality is also a realistic image. The symbol, as Hugo uses it, does not idealize things; rather, it expresses their spiritual meaning without disguising them. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
I will weep with you over the children of kings, provided that you will weep with me over the children of the people ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
When you shall have learned to know, and to love, you will still suffer. The day is born in tears. The luminous weep, if only over those in darkness. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
A shadow is hard to seize by the throat and dash to the ground. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
If they had had a different neighbour, one less self-absorbed and more concerned for others, a man of normal, charitable instincts, their desperate state would not have gone unnoticed, their distress-signals would have been heard, and perhaps they would have been rescued by now. Certainly they appeared utterly depraved, corrupt, vile and odious; but it is rare for those who have sunk so low not to be degraded in the process, and there comes a point, moreover, where the unfortunate and the infamous are grouped together, merged in a single fateful word. They are les miserables - the outcasts, the underdogs. And who is to blame? Is it not the most fallen who have most need of charity? ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
During one performance of 'Les Miserables,' the barricade didn't leave the stage, so we had to actually end up finishing the second act with the barricades on the stage, which was very strange ... doing the love scene on the barricade. ~ Josh Young
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Josh Young
I listened to John Denver and Simon & Garfunkel. Edith Piaf was a huge favourite. Then I discovered musicals - I loved 'Les Miserables' - and, at about 14, I started listening to David Gray. ~ Gin Wigmore
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Gin Wigmore
That's the hopefulness of Les Miserables some cynics have ignored, the idea that the individual can rise above the cultural darkness and make a difference. ~ Bob Welch
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Bob Welch
People weighed down with troubles do not look back; they know only too well that misfortune stalks them. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
There is always a patch of blue sky to lovers, although the rest of the world may see nothing but their umbrellas. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Somewhere beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?
Do you hear the people sing?
Say, do you hear the distant drums?
It is the future that they bring
When tomorrow comes! ~ Les Miserables The Broadway Musical
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Les Miserables The Broadway Musical
Marius and Cosette were in the dark in regard to each other. They did not speak, they did not bow, they were not acquainted; they saw each other; and, like the stars in the sky separated by millions of leagues, they lived by gazing upon each other. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
Sometimes a revolution turns into an actual government, or at the very least an actual way of life that contrasts with days past like blood on snow. Such was the case in France, where even as the guillotine released a steady river of gore, Royalist insurrections were suppressed by what had become a sophisticated military.

In Toulon, the Royalist insurrection in 1793 led to an actual siege by republicans, spearheaded by none other than Napoleon Bonaparte. The Royalists in Toulon, supported by the British and Spanish, were feared by the republicans as an existential threat to every hope and promise of the revolution. For months there were bombardments, cannon fire that made the windows in the prison tremble. ~ Kelsey Brickl
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Kelsey Brickl
The last thing the theatre owners wanted was for people who spent $200 to see 'Les Miserables' to come out again and see the real miserable children of America, right there on the sidewalk. ~ Jonathan Kozol
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Jonathan Kozol
Come on. We must have a little pity. Do you know what we're talking about now?...When a man supports his relatives by his labor, he has no right to sacrifice himself. That is deserting his family...My friends, there is a tomorrow; you won't be here on that tomorrow, but your families will...We must not be selfish." (on page 1183 of 1480) ~ Combeferre Les Misérables
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Combeferre Les Misérables
The poor priest went to his poor mountaineers with empty hands, and he returns from them with his hands full. I set out bearing only my faith in God; I have brought back the treasure of a cathedral. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
The barber ran to the broken window, and saw Gavroche, who was running with all his might towards the Saint Jean market. On passing the barber's shop, Gavroche, who had the two children on his mind, could not resist the desire to bid him "good day", and had sent a stone through his sash.
"See!" screamed the barber, who from white had become blue, "he makes mischief. What has anybody done to this Gamin? ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
When the nettle is young, the leaves make excellent greens; when it grows old it has filaments and fibers like hemp and flax. Cloth made from the nettle is as good as that made from hemp. Chopped up, the nettle is good for poultry; pounded, it is good for horned cattle. The seed of the nettle mixed with the fodder of animals gives a luster to their skin; the root, mixed with salt, produces a beautiful yellow dye. It makes, however, excellent hay, as it can be cut twice in a season. And what does the nettle need? very little soil, no care, no culture; except that the seeds fall as fast as they ripen, and it is difficult to gather them; that is all. If we would take a little pains, the nettle would be useful; we neglect it, and it becomes harmful. Then we kill it. How much men are like the nettle! My friends, remember this, that there are no weeds, and no worthless men, there are only bad farmers. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
I just wanted to see every single musical I could. The very first one I saw was 'Beauty and the Beast,' the only one I could get tickets for, and then 'Les Miserables' and then 'Chicago.' ~ America Ferrera
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by America Ferrera
My idol is Emile Zola. He was a man of the left, so people expected of him a kind of 'Les Miserables,' in which the underdogs are always noble people. But he went out, and found a lot of ambitious, drunk, slothful and mean people out there. Zola simply could not - and was not interested in - telling a lie. ~ Tom Wolfe
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Tom Wolfe
You have suffered greatly, poor mother. Oh ! do not lament, you have now the portion of the elect. It is in this way that mortals become angels. It is not their fault ; they do not know how to set about it otherwise. This hell from which you have come out is the first step towards Heaven. We must begin by that. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in
what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars. ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
Supreme resources spring from extreme resolutions.
Les Miserables, page 674 ~ Victor Hugo
Les Miserables Enjolras quotes by Victor Hugo
Books guided my life from high school, and the greatest, most interesting, most provocative, funniest, smartest people who ever lived in the last 200 or 300 years wrote those books. I would fall in love with Victor Hugo and read not just 'Les Miserables,' but 'Bug-Jargal' and 'The Toilers of the Sea' and so forth. ~ Robert Loomis
