My wish is only to let others know Briand as I do and to show how the events of his life, constantly animated by a desire for peace, led inevitably to his present efforts for a United Europe. To know a person does not mean that one can re count his actions year by year. You hear a man speak; you receive an impression of him. You see the value of certain of his actions; you see how he bears up under deception and injustice; how he reacts to fame. You see him in moments of relaxation, when he is not in the official character he has created for himself. To dig out a life from books and documents no doubt will give an interesting and instructive recital of facts, but it cannot give a living picture. Form and movement cannot be separated. A portrait is never exactly like a person, any more than a butterfly im paled on a pin is a butterfly. The only portrait worthy of attempt is perhaps a series of snapshots. As cinematic views they could almost rebuild a life. xi
