Quotes from "Les Miserables"

Posted on: June 11, 2011

Innocence wears its own crown, Monsieur; it needs no added dignity; it is as sublime in rags as in royal robes. p54
…since natures vary, we must agree that all the beauties of human excellence may be fostered by faiths that we do not share. p65
What more could he need, this old man whose little leisure was divided between daytime gardening and night-time contemplation? Was not that narrow space with the sky its ceiling room enough for worship God in the most delicate of His works and in the most sublime? A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in – what more could be ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars. p68
Man is so constituted that he can endure long periods of suffering, both moral and physical, without dying of it. p96

Curiosity is a form of gluttony: to see is to devour. p183

There is a prospect greater than the sea, and it is the sky; there is a prospect greater than sky, and it is the human soul. p208

“A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.”-How beautiful!

Les Miserables has always been my favorite novel. I read it when I was very young and in my heart its message has never been surpassed. I highly recommend the 1939 movie version with Charles Laughton and Frederick March.

thanks NP! i had read Hugo's all other fictions when i was in high school and loved everyone of them. i somehow save this one until now. it's incredible. i am still reading. will watch the movie you recommended.

p.s. i miss typed. just fixed it.
