Unlikely Quote

"there are only two powers in the world........the sword of the oppressor and spirit of the oppressed. In the long run the sword is always defeated by the spirit."

- Napoleon Bonaparte

When I read this quote as the lead-in to an article, I could hardly believe it was by Napoleon. He was a great military man, but also a deep thinker, evidently. I'm not sure if he was even referring to war and conquest. It is applicable to any situation, personal or otherwise.
