Wikiquote:Quote of the day/July 14, 2017

 

Arise, children of the Fatherland,
The day of glory has arrived!
Against us tyranny's
Bloody banner is raised …
Do you hear, in the countryside,
The roar of those ferocious soldiers?
They're coming right into your arms
To slaughter your sons, your companions!!

To arms, citizens,
Form your battalions,
Let's march, let's march!

~ Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle ~
