Quotes and Images from The Court of St. Cloud

Produced by David Widger



A Gentleman at Paris

A stranger to remorse and repentance, as well as to honour

Accused of fanaticism, because she refused to cohabit with him

All his creditors, denounced and executed

All priests are to be proscribed as criminals

As everywhere else, supported injustice by violence

As confident and obstinate as ignorant

Bestowing on the Almighty the passions of mortals

Bonaparte and his wife go now every morning to hear Mass

Bonaparte dreads more the liberty of the Press than all other


Bow to their charlatanism as if it was sublimity

Cannot be expressed, and if expressed, would not be believed

Chevalier of the Guillotine: Toureaux

Complacency which may be felt, but ought never to be published

Country where power forces the law to lie dormant

Distinguished for their piety or rewarded for their flattery

Easy to give places to men to whom Nature has refused parts

Encounter with dignity and self-command unbecoming provocations

Error to admit any neutrality at all

Expeditious justice, as it is called here

Extravagances of a head filled with paradoxes

Feeling, however, the want of consolation in their misfortunes

Forced military men to kneel before priests

French Revolution was fostered by robbery and murder

Future effects dreaded from its past enormities

General who is too fond of his life ought never to enter a camp

Generals of Cabinets are often indifferent captains in the field

God is only the invention of fear

Gold, changes black to white, guilt to innocence

Hail their sophistry and imposture as inspiration

He was too honest to judge soundly and to act rightly

Her present Serene Idiot, as she styles the Prince Borghese

Hero of great ambition and small capacity: La Fayette

How many reputations are gained by an impudent assurance
