Marius, having repudiated his Royalist upbringing, has now had his Bonapartist leanings challenged by the gaggle of students he has fallen in with.

Marius: "...to be the great nation and to give birth to the grand army, to make its legions fly forth over all the earth, [...] to conquer the world twice, by conquest and by dazzling, that is sublime, what greater thing is there?"

"To be free," said Combeferre."

Or, if you prefer:

""Citizen," said Enjorlas to him, "my mother is the Republic.""

Also, he is penniless.

("by dazzling?" Shame on you, translator.)


You're meeting my favorite character. :)
