Quote: Les Misérables

The excessive weight of this man in human destiny disturbed the equilibrium. This individual alone counted for more than the whole of mankind. This plethora of all human vitality concentrated within a single head, the world rising  to the brain of one man, would be fatal to civilization if it endured. The moment had come for incorruptible supreme equity to look into it.Probably the principles and elements on which regular gravitation in the moral and the material orders depend had begun to mutter. Reeking blood, overcrowded cemeteries, weeping mothers – these are formidable plaintiffs. When the earth is suffering from a surcharge, there are mysterious moanings from the deep that the heavens hear.

Napoleon had been impeached before the infinite, and his fall was decreed.

He annoyed God.

Waterloo is not a battle; it is the changing face of the universe.

– Victor Hugo
