,ĦĦĦĦ"And here's the commander," said Likhachev..ĦĦĦĦIf the aim of the European wars at the beginning of the nineteenth century had been the aggrandizement of Russia, that aim might have been accomplished without all the preceding wars and without the invasion. If the aim wag the aggrandizement of France, that might have been attained without the Revolution and without the Empire. If the aim was the dissemination of ideas, the printing press could have accomplished that much better than warfare. If the aim was the progress of civilization, it is easy to see that there are other ways of diffusing civilization more expedient than by the destruction of wealth and of human lives.,ĦĦĦĦ"The stableman says that Monsieur's horse is extremely fatigued.",,ĦĦĦĦFor the space of seven years his reputation for virtue had filled the whole of Bas Boulonnais; it had eventually passed the confines of a small district and had been spread abroad through two or three neighboring departments.,.ĦĦĦĦThey raised material questions, questions of agriculture, of industry, of commerce, almost to the dignity of a religion.,ĦĦĦĦFrom that moment forth, Mother Plutarque saw a sombre veil, which was never more lifted, descend over the old man's candid face..

We are on a cross-road. The relays are badly served, the horses are in the fields.,ĦĦĦĦThe scene of the third act represented a palace in which many candles were burning and pictures of knights with short beards hung on the walls. In the middle stood what were probably a king and a queen. The king waved his right arm and, evidently nervous, sang something badly and sat down on a crimson throne.
