Ideas consume the ages as passions consume men. When man is cured, humanity may possibly cure itself. - Honoré de Balzac (Catherine de' Medici Quotes)

Ideas consume the ages as passions consume men. When man is cured, humanity may possibly cure itself.[Les idées dévorent les siècles comme les hommes sont dévorés par leurs passions. Quand l’homme sera guéri, l’humanité se guérira peut-être.]
