There are in the world two powers-the sword and the spirit. The spirit has always vanquished the sword.
Napoleon Bonaparte (1769 - 1821)

Do you know what astonished me most in the world? The inability of force to create anything. In the long run, the sword is always beaten by the spirit.
There is one kind of robber whom the law does not strike at, and who steals what is most precious to men: time.
You may ask me for anything you like except time.
Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide.
The best way to keep one's word is not to give it.
A revolution is an axiom backed by bayonets.
Riches do not consist in the possession of treasures, but in the use made of them.
If you want to take Vienna, take Vienna!
In matters of government, justice means force as well as virtue.
