Famous quotes




These are a collection of quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte that I really enjoyed. I know you wouldn't think of Napoleon as having great quotes but you'd be suprised at some of these, I know I was.

Napoleon Bonaparte

"There is only one step from the sublime to the ridiculous."

"There are only two forces in the world, the sword and the spirit. In the long run the sword will always be conquered by the spirit."

And my favorite

"Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and myself founded empires; but what foundation did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded an empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him."
