Napoleon Anecdotes

NAPOLEON’S UNCONQUERABLE SPIRIT

The night before the affair of Brienne, Napoleon slept in a cottage, where he received intelligence of the movements of the enemies that nearly surrounded him. After passing several hours of cruel suspense and anxiety, an aide-de-camp came to inform him that the causeway leading to Brienne was again unoccupied; in consequence of the direction which the enemy had taken, he jumped up, and with considerable vivacity made use of an exclamation which betrayed the ruling passion of his life, “I may yet,” said he, “be master of the world.”

The Emperor’s Mode of Perusing A Book

It is sufficient (says the Abbe de Pradt) to have seen Napoleon read a book, etc., to form an idea of his mind and manner; the leaves flew beneath his fingers; he just glanced over the pages, and in a very short time the poor writer was almost always rejected with some mark of contempt, or some of the common expressions of disdain. Stuff! Nonsense! Chimeras! A Jansenist! This last word was the maximum of his reproaches. With his head constantly in the clouds, his flight was always toward the empyrean; from this point of elevation, he undertook to view the earth with the eye of an eagle; and when he descended, to walk over it like a giant.
