1. "Sous le pont Mirabeau coule la SeineEt nos amoursFaut-il qu'il m'en souvienneLa joie venait toujours après la peineVienne la nuit sonne l'heureLes jours s'en vont je demeureLes mains dans les mains restons face à faceTandis que sousLe pont de nos bras passedes éternels regards l'onde si lasseVienne la nuit sonne l'heureLes jours s'en vont je demeurel'amour s'en va comme cette eau couranteL'amour s'en vaComme la vie est lenteEt comme l'Espérance est violenteVienne la nuit sonne l'heureLes jours s'en vont je demeurePassent les jours et passent les semainesNi temps passéNi les amours reviennentSous le pont Mirabeau coule la SeineVienne la nuit sonne l'heureLes jours s'en vont je demeure"

2. "Talking to Robespierre, one tried to make the right noises; but what is right, these days? Address yourself to the militant, and you find a pacifist giving you a reproachful look. Address yourself to the idealist, and you'll find that you've fallen into the company of a cheerful, breezy professional politician. Address yourself to means, and you'll be told to think of ends: to ends, and you'll be told to think of means. Make an assumption, and you will find it overturned; offer yesterday's conviction, and today you'll find it shredded. What did Mirabeau complain of? He believes everything he says. Presumably there was some layer of Robespierre, some deep stratum, where all the contradictions were resolved."
Author: Hilary Mantel
3. "Mirabeau: "If you have been told to clear us from this hall, you must ask for orders to use force. We shall leave our seats only at bayonet point. The King can cause us to be killed; tell him we all await death; but he need not hope that we shall separate until we have made the constitution."Audible only to his neighbor, he adds, "If they come, we bugger off, quick."
Author: Hilary Mantel
4. "I would not exchange my leisure hours for all the wealth in the world. -Comte De Mirabeau"

The press gave me a voice too quickly, and that could have unsettled a man who had every right to feel he should be in control of the thing he had created."
