Hey Star! Have you read History of the French revolution by Jules Michelet? ^^

Hi there! c: I was fortunate enough to study with a professor who was super into Michelet, so yes I have read some parts! I love your username by the way!  Have you seen the movie of the same name?

"Maximilien was in touch with the Cordeliers - he had read his speech on the silver mark to them - and he also knew [Pierre-François-Joseph] Robert. It was Robert who had married Louise-Félicité de Keralio, whom Maximilien had welcomed in 1786 when he was president of the Arras Academy. He sometimes dined at her home and met Petion there, but it sometimes happened that he would lose himself in his thoughts and ‘remain at a distance and amuse himself for hours on end with a large dog.’"

—Max Gallo, Robespierre The Incorruptible: A Psychobiography

#about me  

Little soul, gentle and drifting, guest and companion of my body, now you will dwell below in pallid places, stark and bare; there you will abandon your play of yore. But one moment still, let us gaze together on these familiar shores, on these objects which doubtless we shall not see again. Let us try, if we can, to enter into death with open eyes.
