Turning problems into potential
¡¡¡¡At the instant when the insurrection, arising from the shock of the populace and the military in front of the Arsenal, started a movement in advance and towards the rear in the multitude which was following the hearse and which, through the whole length of the boulevards, weighed, so to speak, on the head of the procession, there arose a frightful ebb..¡®Wait,¡¯ said Harry, snatching up Hermione's wand from the floor and shoving it into Neville's hand, ¡®you'd better take this.¡¯...¡¡¡¡The beggar had the same figure, the same rags, the same appearance as he had every day.,¡¡¡¡garlic, 62 centimes, and ended with:,¡¡¡¡"Andrew Sevastyanych!" said Rostov.

,ANDY!¡¡¡¡Cosette did not know.,LastIndexNext...? Leo Tolstoy,¡¡¡¡Biographical historians and historians of separate nations understand this force as a power inherent in heroes and rulers. In their narration events occur solely by the will of a Napoleon, and Alexander, or in general of the persons they describe. The answers given by this kind of historian to the question of what force causes events to happen are satisfactory only as long as there is but one historian to each event. As soon as historians of different nationalities and tendencies begin to describe the same event, the replies they give immediately lose all meaning, for this force is understood by them all not only differently but often in quite contradictory ways. One historian says that an event was produced by Napoleon's power, another that it was produced by Alexander's, a third that it was due to the power of some other person. Besides this, historians of that kind contradict each other even in their statement as to the force on which the authority of some particular person was based. Thiers, a Bonapartist, says that Napoleon's power was based on his virtue and genius. Lanfrey, a Republican, says it was based on his trickery and deception of the people. So the historians of this class, by mutually destroying one another's positions, destroy the understanding of the force which produces events, and furnish no reply to history's essential question.!
