Maximilien Robespierre
“Unless you do everything for liberty, you have done nothing. There are no two ways of being free: one must be entirely free, or become a slave once more.”
Maximilien Robespierre, Virtue and Terror

Maximilien Robespierre
“The most extravagant idea that can be born in the head of a political thinker is to believe that it suffices for people to enter, weapons in hand, among a foreign people and expect to have its laws and constitution embraced. No one loves armed missionaries; the first lesson of nature and prudence is to repulse them as enemies.”
Maximilien de Robespierre, Oeuvres Compl�tes: 8

Maximilien Robespierre
“A true revolutionary should be ready to perish in the process”
Maximilien Robespierre

Maximilien Robespierre
“The people asks only for what is necessary, it only wants justice and tranquility, the rich aspire to everything, they want to invade and dominate everything. Abuses are the work and the domain of the rich, they are the scourges of the people: the interest of the people is the general interest, that of the rich is a particular interest.”
Maximilien Robespierre, Virtue and Terror

Maximilien Robespierre
“Virtue, without which terror is destructive; terror, without which virtue is impotent. Terror is only justice prompt, severe and inflexible; it is then an emanation of virtue.”
Maximilien de Robespierre, Report on the Principles of Political Morality
