Napoleon I of France Quote

Among so many conflicting ideas and so many different perspectives, the honest man is confused and distressed and the skeptic becomes wicked … Since one must take sides, one might as well choose the side that is victorious, the side which devastates, loots, and burns. Considering the alternative, it is better to eat than to be eaten.


Letter to his brother, as quoted in The Age of Napoleon (2002) by J. Christopher Herold, p. 8
