Les Derniers Secrets De La Campagne De Russie
The story is a pleasure. It tells us where we come from, who we are; what we can hope for, what we can fear; what we owe to ourselves, what belongs to us. The past is an immense capital of experiences whose meditation can only be fruitful. It helps us to find ourselves in the difficulties of time, to steer us in the fog that masks the future, and we condemn, without it, to unsuccessful trial. It is the school of peoples, at the same time as a treasure offered to filial piety, from generation to generation. Occult, distorted, history can be a formidable instrument of manipulation and subjugation. Our freedom depends on it. But history is also an opportunity to nourish our inner life by evading us to other horizons, other adventures, other times. It contains miracles of poetry, emotion, grandeur, even when nothing is invented, nothing is imaginary, even if it is content to revive events, civilizations, customs in their singular truth.
