“We will love science and its controversies.”

We will continue, Professor. With all the teachers and professors in France, we will teach history, its glories and its vicissitudes. We will introduce literature, music, all works of soul and spirit. We will love with all our strength the debate, the reasonable arguments, the kind persuasions. We will love science and its controversies. Like you, we will cultivate tolerance. Like you, we will seek to understand, relentlessly, and to understand even more what we would like to move away from us. We will learn humor, distance. We will recall that our freedoms hold only through the end of hatred and violence, through respect for others.

Emmanuel Macron, President of France, at the memorial and funeral of Samuel Paty, the Sorbonne, France.
