“Let us fear ourselves. Prejudices are the real robbers; vices are the real murderers. The great dangers lie within ourselves. What matters it what threatens our head or our purse! Let us think only of that which threatens our soul.”
Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo
By the way, the new PBS seriesbased on the book, the first since the 1960’s, is a superb production. I highly recommend it.
