Georges Clemenceau

Datum narození: 28. září 1841
Datum úmrtí: 24. listopad 1929

Georges Benjamin Clemenceau [ʒɔʁʒ klemɑ̃so] byl francouzský politik a žurnalista.

Dvakrát byl francouzským premiérem za Radikální stranu, a to od 25. října 1906 do 24. července 1909, podruhé od 16. listopadu 1917 do 20. ledna 1920. Přimlouval se za obnovení procesu proti Dreyfusově aféře a byl zastáncem tvrdého postupu proti Německu po první světové válce.

Dvě lodě francouzského válečného námořnictva nesou jeho jméno. Jednou z nich byla letadlová loď, která sloužila v letech 1961 až 1997.

„Hřbitovy jsou plné nenahraditelných lidí.“

—  Georges Clemenceau

Varianta: Hřbitovy jsou plné nepostradatelných lidí.

„There are only two perfectly useless things in this world. One is an appendix and the other is Poincaré.“

—  Georges Clemenceau

Referring to his rival Raymond Poincaré, as quoted in Paris 1919 : Six Months That Changed the World (2003) by Margaret MacMillan, p. 33

„All that I know I learned after I was thirty.“

—  Georges Clemenceau

As quoted in And Madly Teach : A Layman Looks at Public School Education (1949) by Mortimer Brewster Smith, p. 27
Post-Prime Ministerial

„A man who waits to believe in action before acting is anything you like, but he’s not a man of action.“

—  Georges Clemenceau

Conversation with Jean Martet (18 December 1927), Ch. 11, p. 167.
Clemenceau, The Events of His Life (1930)
Kontext: A man who waits to believe in action before acting is anything you like, but he’s not a man of action. It is as if a tennis player before returning a ball stopped to think about his views of the physical and mental advantages of tennis. You must act as you breathe.

„To me the scene possessed only the horror of a slaughter-house.“

—  Georges Clemenceau

South America To-Day : A Study of Conditions, Social, Political, and Commercial in Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil (1911) http://www.archive.org/details/southamericatoda011092mbp Ch. 14, Brazilian Coffee, p. 395
Kontext: In the distance huge trees were still blazing, around us was a waste of ashes and of half-consumed boughs, and the falling rain seemed only to quicken the dying conflagration. In some of the great green boles were fearful gaping wounds through which the sap was oozing, while some tall trees still stretched to heaven their triumphant crown of foliage above a trunk all charred that would never sprout again. The Brazilians contemplate spectacles such as this with a wholly indifferent eye, and, indeed, even with satisfaction, for they see in the ruin only a promise of future harvests. To me the scene possessed only the horror of a slaughter-house.

„America is far away and protected by the ocean, England could not be reached by Napoleon himself. You are sheltered, both of you; we are not.“

—  Georges Clemenceau

Speech at the Paris Peace Conference (27 March 1919), quoted in Anthony Adamthwaite, Grandeur and Misery: France's Bid for Power in Europe 1914-1940 (London: Arnold, 1995), p. 40.
Kontext: After expending the greatest effort, and suffering the greatest sacrifices in blood in all history, we must not compromise the results of our victory... if the League of Nations cannot buttress its orders with military sanctions we must find this sanction elsewhere... I beg you to understand my state of mind, just as I am trying to understand yours. America is far away and protected by the ocean, England could not be reached by Napoleon himself. You are sheltered, both of you; we are not.
