“There are people who observe the rules of honour as one observes the stars – from a great distance.”
These are the words of Combeferre, one of the Friends of the ABC, when Feully, another member of the friendship mentions the names of people who brag that they would help the revolution, but vanish when the day comes.
I find the sarcasm in it amusing and at the same time sad. It reminds us how easy it is to talk, and how difficult it is to be true to our words. I believe that doing what we say is also part of being honourable. After all, it is better no to say anything than say a lot of things without doing it.
