In preparation for the upcoming release of the movie Les Miserables, people are starting to read or re-read the book. In the preface of the book, there is a speech given by Victor Hugo on Workman's Congress at Marseille. I like to share it.
"Have faith, then; and let us realize our equality as citizens, our fraternity as men, our liberty in intellectual power. Let us love not only those who love us, but those who love us not. Let us learn to wish to benefit all men. Then everything will be changed; truth will reveal itself, the beautiful will arise, the supreme law will be fulfilled, and the world shall enter upon a perpetual fete day. I say, therefore, have faith."
