They had heard all that before. And all he said- that it was necessary to await provisions, or that the men had no boots- was so simple, while what they proposed was so complicated and clever, that it was evident that he was old and stupid and that they, though not in power, were commanders of genius.,¡¡¡¡"Decamp, my girl, and leave men to their own affairs!",It is no grace to a judge, first to find that which he might have heard, in due time, ;¡¡¡¡Cosette's instinct sought a father, as Jean Valjean's instinct sought a child.,,¡¡¡¡He said to himself with a shudder, "Good God! shall I become like that again?",¡¡¡¡When he was with Cosette, !¡¡¡¡ For such Frenchmen nothing less than such Englishmen was needed.

Napoleon's historian Thiers, like other of his historians, trying to justify his hero says that he was drawn to the walls of Moscow against his will. He is as right as other historians who look for the explanation of historic events in the will of one man; he is as right as the Russian historians who maintain that Napoleon was drawn to Moscow by the skill of the Russian commanders. Here besides the law of retrospection, which regards all the past as a preparation for events that subsequently occur, the law of reciprocity comes in, confusing the whole matter. A good chessplayer having lost a game is sincerely convinced that his loss resulted from a mistake he made and looks for that mistake in the opening, but forgets that at each stage of the game there were similar mistakes and that none of his moves were perfect. He only notices the mistake to which he pays attention, because his opponent took advantage of it.
