COMTE ALFRED VICTOR DE VIGNY
French man of letters
(1797 - 1863)

The army is a good book to open to study human life. One learns there to put his hand to everything, to the lowest and highest things. The most delicate and rich are forced to see living nearly everywhere poverty, and to live with it, and to measure his morsel of bread and draught of water.
      - [Army]

What is a great life? It is the dreams of youth realised in old age.
  [Fr., Qu'est-ce qu'une grande vie? C'est un reve de jeunesse realise dans l'age mur.]
      - quoted by Louis Ratisbonne in the "Journal des Debats", Oct. 4, 1863
        [Life]
