Henrik Ibsen Quote

For this campaign there were good and sufficient reasons; and if some should think that I have not fulfilled all expectations, they ought in justice to reflect that there is a mysterious power without us, which in a great measure governs the issue of human undertakings.


The Emperor Julian, as portrayed in Emperor and Galilean (1873).
