Victor Marie Hugo(February 26, 1802 – May 22 , 1885) was one of the greatest French writers in history. Some of his most notable works include Les Misérables and The Hunchback of Notre-Dame.
Here are Victor Hugo’s top ten most inspirational quotes:
There is nothing like a dream to create the future.
Perseverance, secret of all triumphs.
Life is the flower for which love is the honey.
Concision in style, precision in thought, decision in life.
To love another person is to see the face of God.
Our mind is enriched by what we receive, our heart by what we give.
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.
Life’s greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved.
There is nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come.
The future has several names. For the weak, it is impossible; for the fainthearted, it is unknown; but for the valiant, it is ideal.
