Victor Hugo on Love

VHugo“Love is the foolishness of men, and the wisdom of God,” wrote Victor Hugo, French poet and author of Les Misérables and The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1802-1885). Below are two of my fave quotes on love from his elegant pen.

“When love has fused and mingled two beings in a sacred and angelic unity, the secret of life has been discovered so far as they are concerned; they are no longer anything more than the two boundaries of the same destiny; they are no longer anything but the two wings of the same spirit. Love, soar.”

Les Misérables

“Love is like a tree: it grows by itself, roots itself deeply in our being and continues to flourish over a heart in ruin. The inexplicable fact is that the blinder it is, the more tenacious it is. It is never stronger than when it is completely unreasonable.”
The Hunchback of Notre-Dame
