Les Miserables Best Quotes. It is Frightful not to Live. First published in 1862, Les Miserables is a French historical novel by Victor Hugo. It is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century.

The novel is placed in Paris. Beginning in 1815 and culminating in the 1832 June Rebellion. The plot follows the lives and interactions of very many characters, although the protagonist is the ex-convicted Jean Valjean and his experience of redemption.

Justice vs law. Ethics vs religion. Conventional rules vs love. Les Miserables is a great example of Romancism.

Les Misérables has been popularized through numerous adaptations for the stage, television, and film, including a musical and a 2012 film adaptation of that musical directed by Tom Hooper and starring by Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway.

Best quotes about love:

“It is nothing to die. It is frightful not to live.”

“To love another person is to see the face of God.”

“To love or have loved, that is enough. Ask nothing further. There is no other pearl to be found in the dark folds of life.”

“Promise to give me a kiss on my brow when I am dead. –I shall feel it.”

Best quote about justice:

“Teach the ignorant as much as you can; society is culpable in not providing a free education for all and it must answer for the night which it produces. If the soul is left in darkness sins will be committed. The guilty one is not he who commits the sin, but he who causes the darkness.”


“Before him he saw two roads, both equally straight; but he did see two; and that terrified him–he who had never in his life known anything but one straight line. And, bitter anguish, these two roads were contradictory.”

“The future has several names. For the weak, it is impossible; for the fainthearted, it is unknown; but for the valiant, it is ideal.”

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
