Napoleon November 4, 1932 From the writing of Pandit Nehru Ji:

Out of the French Revolution emerged Napoleon. France, Republican France, that had challenged and dared the kings of Europe, succumbed to this little Corsican. A strange, wild beauty had France then. A French poet, Barbier, has compared her to a wild animal, a proud and free mare, with head high and shining skin; a beautiful vagabond, fiercely intolerant of saddle and harness and rein, stamping on the ground and frightening the world with the noise of her neighing. 
This proud mare consented to be ridden by the young man from Corsica, and he did many wonderful deeds with her. But he tamed her also and made the wild free thing lose all her wildness and freedom. And he exploited her and exhausted her till she threw him down and fell down herself.

O Corse à cheveux plats! que la France était belle
Au grand Soleil de Messidor!
C’était une cavale indomptable et rebelle,
Sans frein d’acier, ni rénes d’or;
Une jument sauvage à la coupe rustique,
Fumante encore du sang des rois,
Mais fière, et d’un pied fort heurtant le sol antique.
Libre pour la première fois!
Jamais aucune main n’avait passé sur elle
Pour la flétrir et l’outrager;
Jamais ses larges flancs n’avaient porté la selle
Et le harnais de l’étranger;
Tout son poil reluisait, et, belle vagabonde,
L’oeil haut, la croupe en mouvement,
Sur ses jarrets dressée, elle effrayait le monde
Du bruit de son hennissement.

What manner of man was Napoleon, then? Was he one of the great ones of the earth, the Man of Destiny, as he was called, a mighty hero and one who helped in freeing humanity from its many burdens? Or was he, as H.G. Wells and some others say, a mere adventurer and a wrecker, who did great injury to Europe and civilization?
Probably both these views are exaggerated; probably both contain some measure of the truth. All of us are curious mixtures of the good and the bad, the great and the little. He was such a mixture, but, unlike most of us, extraordinary qualities went to make up this mixture. The courage he had and self-confidence and imagination and amazing energy and vast ambition. He was a very great general, a master of the art of war, comparable to the great captains of old—Alexander and Chengiz. But he was petty also, and selfish and self-centeredand the dominating impulse of his life was not the pursuit of an ideal, but the
quest of personal power. “My mistress!” he once said,“Power is my mistress!
The conquest of that mistress has cost me so much that I will allow no one to rob me of her, or to share her with me!” Child of the Revolution he was, and yet he dreamt of a vast empire, and the conquests of Alexander filled his mind. 
Even Europe seemed small. The East lured him, and especially Egypt and India. “Only in the East,” he said, early in his career when he was twenty-seven, “have there been great empires and mighty changes; in the East where six hundred million people dwell. Europe is a mole-hill!”
