Alexandre Dumas

“A person who doubts himself is like a man who would enlist in the ranks of his enemies and bear arms against himself.”

– Alexandre Dumas

About Alexandre Dumas

Popular French author Alexandre
Dumas was famed for his adventure stories, including The Three Musketeers
and The Count of Monte Cristo. He was born in 1802 near Paris. His
mulatto father was a general in the French Army who died young, leaving his
family destitute. Dumas began as a playwright, but newspapers were eager for
serialized fiction, so he adapted a play into his first novel. He died in 1870;
in 2002 his body was moved to the Pantheon to recognize his role in French
literature.
