Maximilien Robespierre Quote: “Terror is only justice: prompt, severe…”

Terror is only justice: prompt, severe and inflexible; it is then an emanation of virtue; it is less a distinct principle than a natural consequence of the general principle of democracy, applied to the most pressing wants of the country.
