Ok, so my quote challenge didn't meet "official criteria," because I couldn't find all of my quotes in French (lacking access to a research library). However, some of you might still find it fun.

The following quotes were written about / to Robespierre by his friends and colleagues. I think it's fascinating to see how the people who actually knew him saw him. See if you can match the quotes with their authors. Trust me, there is no point in trying Google for most of these. You could scour books, but you might do just as well taking some educated guesses. I have a cool engraving of a scene from 9 Thermidor to email to the winner. :)

My apologies for the slight lateness of this!

Anyway, this month's quote challenge focuses on Robespierre. More specifically, it contains quotes of his from 1790 - 1794, which you must put in chronological order.

You will have until May 30th to respond to this post with your guesses. Comments will be screened until that time. The winner will be the first to get the greatest number of answers correct and will also be in charge of the quote challenge for next month (and I'll run the monthly discussion point by that person first just to be sure they don't have any concerns about the feasibility of finding quotes related to it).

The only real rule, and this is a BIG rule, is no Googling. Googling would...well, it would make the whole thing fairly pointless. You are, however, able to scour any printed sources at your disposal for the quotes, as it involves a much larger amount of blood, sweat, and tears than just copying and pasting every quote into Google. :P

Annnnd, here we go! Quotage )

Hello, all!

A while back, [livejournal.com profile] estellacat suggested that we have a monthly quote challenge, either posting one and having people guess the author, or posting several and having people match them up. So...that's what we're going to do!

The first challenge, tying into our monthly discussion point, involves quotes by members of the Committee of Public Safety. You will notice that there are only nine quotes, meaning that there are three members whose names you will not use. But telling you who they are would be far too easy, so you'll just have to discern for yourself!


You will have until March 27th to respond to this post with your guesses. Comments will be screened until that time. The winner will be the first to get the greatest number of answers correct and will also be in charge of the quote challenge for next month (and I'll run the monthly discussion point by that person first just to be sure they don't have any concerns about the feasibility of finding quotes related to it).

The only real rule, and this is a BIG rule, is no Googling. Googling would...well, it would make the whole thing fairly pointless. You are, however, able to scour any printed sources at your disposal for the quotes, as it involves a much larger amount of blood, sweat, and tears than just copying and pasting every quote into Google. :P

So without further ado...the quotes! )
