So, I was not very much looking forward to reading this essay for my seminar today, but then I saw the first line and was hooked, obviously :)



...the rest of the essay has nothing to do with Saint-Just (or the French Revolution), sadly. Boo.

I did that exact same thing when I ran across that article! Was sorely disappointed, of course...happiness might be a new idea in Europe, but it definitely does not consist of being lured into a completely irrelevant article. -_-;

I think that is one of Saint-Just's quote that might run for `most {mis-}quoted quotation' ever.. I think I found it in about 5-6 articles (completely irrelevant to Saint-Just or the French Revolution). Also a certain kind of Italian journalism likes to quote it now and then.

It is such a nice quote. Sadly it didn't have much to do with that article (I found it a while ago and read it too)
