Victor Hugo

“Common sense is in spite of, not as the result of education.”

“He who opens a school door closes a prison.”

“Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.”

“Maternal love: a miraculous substance which God multiplies as He divides it.”

“The supreme happiness of life is the conviction of being loved for yourself, or, more correctly, being loved in spite of yourself.”

“There are fathers who do not love their children; there is no grandfather who does not adore his grandson.”
