Victor Hugo
“So long as there shall exist, by reason of law and custom, a social condemnation, which, in the face of civilisation, artificially creates hells on earth, and complicates a destiny that is divine, with human fatality; so long as the three problems of the age — the degradation of man by poverty, the ruin of woman by starvation, and the dwarfing of childhood by physical and spiritual night — are not solved; so long as, in certain regions, social asphyxia shall be possible; in other words, and from a yet more extended point of view, so long as ignorance and misery remain on earth, books like this cannot be useless.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Victor Hugo
“What is the true story of Fantine? It is the story of society's purchase of a slave. A slave purchased from poverty, hunger, cold, loneliness, defencelessness, destitution. A squalid bargain: a human soul for a hunk of bread. Poverty offers and society accepts.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Victor Hugo
“This book is a drama, whose leading personage is the Infinite.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

John Green
“The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

Victor Hugo
“Genuflection before the idol or the dollar destroys the muscles which walk and the will that moves.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
