N’Importe Quoi Photo of the Week: Bread, Education & Audacity

statue inscription

“After bread, education is the first need of the people.” Words from the French Revolutionary, Georges Danton (on his statue outside the Odéon metro station). Another great quote by Danton (on the other side of the statue): “Il nous faut de l’audace, et encore de l’audace, et toujours de l’audace“—”We need audacity, and yet more audacity, and always audacity!”
