François-René de Chateaubriand

“But instead of this peace which I dared to expect, what anguish has weighed down my days! To become the perpetual plaything of fortune, dashed against every strand, long exiled from my country, and finding on my return only a cabin in ruins and friends the grave -- such was to be the fate of Chactas.”


François-René de Chateaubriand, Atala / René
