A quotation for today

CatalanEugène Catalan (1814 - 1894)

If you want the Republic founded by you to be strong and durable, send the National Assembly men imbued with the principle of the sovereignty of the people; men whose patriotism has been able to resist corruption and intimidation; men who are moreover not the Republicans of tomorrow, but Republicans of yesterday!
From Catalan's Manifesto (1848)
