Quoting Joseph de Maistre

"Like the Protestant Reformation, the Revolution was, in the words of de Maistre, Satanic in its essence. To like it is to move away from God....I hope that these sentiments will be perpetuated by my descendants." Henri de Gaulle, father of Charles.

"In all systems there are relationships which it is wiser to leave undefined."
Joseph de Maistre, quoted by Eamon De Valera in July 1945, talking about Eire's relationship with the British Commonwealth

Thanks to my friend Karl White for bringing these to my attention on his Joseph de Maistre Appreciation Group page on Facebook.
