  • “Peoples do not judge in the same way as courts of law; they do not hand
    down sentences, they throw thunderbolts; they do not condemn kings,
    they drop them back into the void; and this justice is worth just as much
    as that of the courts.” Maximilien Robespierre

    "Was it something I said?"

    Marie Antoinette
