"Du sublime au ridicule il n'y a qu'un pas" From the sublime to the ridiculous there is but one step.
Source: Probably this is the original of Napoleon's celebrated mot,
If you wish to be a success in the world, promise everything, deliver nothing.
There are in the world two powers-the sword and the spirit. The spirit has always vanquished the sword.
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.
Over-preparation is the foe of inspiration.
If they want peace, nations should avoid the pin-pricks that precede cannonshots.
What a beautiful fix we are in now; peace has been declared.
In politics an absurdity is not a handicap.
