Louis xiv: “The Greeks knew what glory was. Their buildings were temples for their gods to live in. We will build a new temple here. A royal tabernacle of the sun. A dwelling place of the divine and of the people, with a great hall of light that will follow the sunrise and shine out to all corners of the globe so they might all see the glory of France….A place of true wonder to remind us all of the great and ancient past under our feet and from whose roots all now grow. As a land and as people who know that true power comes not just from our army, but from the inner beauty of our immortal soul. As our mother, she will cherish us. And as her children, we will always know her as our home. From the farthest reaches of the earth men will venture here simply to look upon her. And those that do… Will never forget.”
