Do not let it be your aim to be something, but to be someone.

Victor Hugo
Let us leave to the brain what belongs to it, and agree that the work of the men of genius is of the superhuman, the offspring of man.
Victor Hugo

When people look back at their childhood or youth, their wistfulness comes from the memory, not of what their lives had been in those years, but of what life had then promised to be. The expectation of some indefinable splendor, of the unusual, the exciting, the great is an attribute of youth and the process of aging is the process of that expectations' gradual extinction. One does not have to let it happen. But that fire dies for lack of fuel, under the gray weight of disappointments.

Victor Hugo
All who suffer are full of hatred; all who live drag a remorse: the dead alone have broken their chains.
Victor Hugo

There is no supernatural, there is only nature. Nature alone exists and contains all. All is. There is the part of nature that we perceive, and the part of nature that we do not perceive. ... If you abandon these facts, beware; charlatans will light upon them, also the imbecile. There is no mean: science, or ignorance. If science does not want these facts, ignorance will take them up. You have refused to enlarge human intelligence, you augment human stupidity. When Laplace withdraws Cagliostro appears.

Victor Hugo
The tomb is not a blind alley: it is a thoroughfare. It closes on the twilight. It opens on the dawn.
Victor Hugo

It was SHE. Whoever has loved knows all the radiant meaning contained in the three letters of this word ‘she.

Victor Hugo
To think is of itself to be useful; it is always and in all cases a striving toward God.
Victor Hugo

Often the losing of a battle leads to the winning of progress. Less glory but greater liberty: the drum is silent and the voices of reason can be heard.

Victor Hugo
Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
