Quotes by Victor Hugo

Victor Hugo was Ayn Rand’s (author of ‘Atlas Shrugged’) favorite author.
"The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved." - Victor Hugo
Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
To love another person is to see the face of God.
Life is the flower for which love is the honey.
Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.
Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace.
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.
To put everything in balance is good, to put everything in harmony is better.
It is nothing to die. It is frightful not to live.
Those who do not weep, do not see.
If I speak, I am condemned. If I stay silent, I am damned!
TAKE heed of this small child of earth;
He is great; he hath in him God most high.
Children before their fleshly birth
Are lights alive in the blue sky.
In our light bitter world of wrong
They come; God gives us them awhile.
His speech is in their stammering tongue,
And his forgiveness in their smile.
Their sweet light rests upon our eyes.
Alas! their right to joy is plain.
If they are hungry Paradise
Weeps, and, if cold, Heaven thrills with pain.
The want that saps their sinless flower
Speaks judgment on sin's ministers.
Man holds an angel in his power.
Ah! deep in Heaven what thunder stirs,
When God seeks out these tender things
Whom in the shadow where we sleep
He sends us clothed about with wings,
And finds them ragged babes that weep!
