- Louis Antoine Léon Florelle de Saint-Just
"Liberty is a bitch who must be bedded on a mattress of corpses."
"What constitutes a republic is the total destruction of everything that stands in opposition to it."
"The conspirators who have died, think you they were the children of liberty, because for one brief moment they resembled them?"
"Those who would make revolutions in the world, those who want to do good in this world must sleep only in the tomb."
