"No army can be compared with the power of an idea whose time has come." French writer Victor Hugo understood that ideas born at a proper time produce ideas shattering the universe, ideas that are doomed to be great.

In his famous novel "The Lover of Lady Chatterley," the English writer David Herbert Lawrence explicitly but poetically, in Anglo-Saxon terminology, presents the love story of a married noble woman and a simple forester who worked for her husband. The novel that was written in 1928 was not permitted to be published in the author's homeland for almost three decades.
