I’d be lying if I claimed I hadn’t thought of it

"

[…] le Roi n’étant, à vrai dire, qu’une sorte de griphe [glyphe ?], avec laquelle les ministres paraphoient leurs expéditions, il falloit dire aux monarchiens, comme le passant à l’avare qui a perdu son trésor :

Mettez une pierre à la place,
Elle vous vaudra tout autant

"

Camille Desmoulins, Révolutions…, n° 84 du 9 juillet 1791. (via montagnarde1793)

(The king being, to tell the truth, nothing but a sort of glyph with which the ministers initial their dispatches, it should be said to the monarchists, as the passer-by said to the miser who lost his treasure: “Put a stone in its place, it will be worth just as much to you.”)

Hahaha oh my gosh, anon! What if I was just like "no it fucking isn’t". JK, of course. Obviously it’s okay. There’s plenty of gay going on within bisexuality, so, welcome Citoyen~

That “liberté, égalité, homosexualité ou la mort” picture is basically my life, and there’s good reason why my blog’s title thingy is “liberté, égalité, homosexualité!” okay

"That lady whom I look upon as a great man… She understands Newton, she despises superstition and in short she makes me happy."

The Philosopher and the Prodigy – how Voltaire fell in love with a remarkable 18th-century female mathematician (via explore-blog)

Of Voltaire’s comments on her that I’ve read, I always get this vibe from them that says a lot about the way women were viewed by men then generally speaking. I mean, Voltaire saying that he looks upon her “as a great man”, and that’s the comparison he uses to convey the intensity of his admiration…I think that says so much. It’s very interesting.

(via unspeakablevice)

As you said, Voltaire was not the only one. This kind of comparisons were common maybe because they felt that they had no other measure of comparison, because “being a great man” was the highest compliment that could be paid to both men or women.  Frederick speaking of his adversary, Maria Theresa of Austria, also said that “That woman’s achievements are those of a great man.” Although Frederick also once said of her that “although I have made war against her, I have never been her personal enemy. I have always respected her ; she was an honor to her sex, and the glory of her throne.”

"For the establishment of liberty and the safety of the nation, one day of anarchy will do more than ten years of National Assemblies"

Camille Desmoulins - A Place of Greater Safety by Hilary Mantel
(via itsrevolutionarythought)

It’s actually a quote from a speech made by Desmoulins in July 1792.

"Pour l’affermissement de la liberté et le salut de la patrie, un seul jour d’anarchie fera plus que quatre ans d’Assemblée nationale!"
