Quote by Victor Hugo
Great perils have this beauty, that they bring to light the fraternity of strangers.
This quote suggests that in times of great danger or risk, people who were previously strangers can come together and form a sense of brotherhood or unity.

The quote highlights the positive aspect of perils, emphasizing how they can reveal the innate human capacity for compassion and camaraderie, ultimately bringing people closer together.
