"His words are great music, phrases in the style of Beethoven, stirring rhythms like the march of Handel choruses.
"I cannot touch these sayings of his, scattered as they are through the pages of books at thirty years' distance, without receiving a thrill through my body like an electric shock. And what shocks, what transports must have been produced when in burning words they issued from the lips of a hero. --- Romain Rolland, famed 19th-century author
