„Both and France and England had started in the Middle Ages with the basic system of hall and chamber (in France salleand chambre), but the system had developed differently in the two countries.“

„TURGOT...I present today one of the three greatest statesmen who fought unreason in France between the close of the Middle Ages and the outbreak of the French Revolution—Louis XI and Richelieu being the two other.“

—  Andrew Dickson White American politician 1832 - 1918
Context: TURGOT... I present today one of the three greatest statesmen who fought unreason in France between the close of the Middle Ages and the outbreak of the French Revolution—Louis XI and Richelieu being the two other. And not only this: were you to count the greatest men of the modern world upon your fingers, he would be of the number—a great thinker, writer, administrator, philanthropist, statesman, and above all, a great character and a great man. And yet, judged by ordinary standards, a failure. For he was thrown out of his culminating position, as Comptroller-General of France, after serving but twenty months, and then lived only long enough to see every leading measure to which he had devoted his life deliberately and malignantly undone; the flagrant abuses which he had abolished restored, apparently forever; the highways to national prosperity, peace, and influence, which he had opened, destroyed; and his country put under full headway toward the greatest catastrophe the modern world has seen. p. 165

„American capitalism is predatory, and American politics are corrupt: The same thing is true in England and the same in France; but in all these three countries the dominating fact is that whenever the people get ready to change the government, they can change it.“

—  Upton Sinclair American novelist, writer, journalist, political activist 1878 - 1968
Context: American capitalism is predatory, and American politics are corrupt: The same thing is true in England and the same in France; but in all these three countries the dominating fact is that whenever the people get ready to change the government, they can change it. The same thing is not true of Germany, and until it was made true in Germany, there could be no free political democracy anywhere else in the world — to say nothing of any free social democracy. My revolutionary friends who will not recognize this fact seem to me like a bunch of musicians sitting down to play a symphony concert in a forest where there is a man-eating tiger loose. For my part, much as I enjoy symphony concerts, I want to put my fiddle away in its case and get a rifle and go out and settle with the tiger.

„I add that the French people know and love Morocco. Between our two countries there exists a cultural, social and human capillarity which transcend the circumstantial difficulties. But in France there is also, a reflex of security because we amalgamate Morocco with other countries of the southern Mediterranean. Morocco has a different identity.“

—  Mohammed VI of Morocco King of Morocco 1963
Original French: J’ajoute que les Français connaissent et aiment le Maroc. Entre nos deux pays, il y a une capillarité culturelle, sociale et humaine qui transcende les difficultés de la conjoncture. Mais il y a aussi, en France, un réflexe sécuritaire parce qu’on fait l’amalgame entre le Maroc et d’autres pays de la rive sud de la Méditerranée.
