The Pale Assassin (Quotes)

In a book that is just average, this paragraph really stood out to me.  It says a lot about the feelings of the young people during the French Revolution.  This is one of the many many reasons why I am so interested in that dark and strange war.
"This is such a time to be alive, Eugenie!  To be young!  It is the young who will change France.  We are the ones with the ideas.  There is so much to do!  Liberty, equality, fraternity!  Those words have such a brave ring, do they not?  They are the watchwords of our Revolution, Eugenie, and we must make them come true for our beloved country!"

- Chapter 7, Page 73

Check back in about a week or so for my review on this book, The Pale Assassin by Patricia Elliott!
