Despite All Rationality
“I shouldn’t have let him go off by himself,” Courfeyrac said finally, sinking lower in his seat. “We should have just waited a bit longer to see if the polytechniciens turned up, or came out searching for us. He might have been killed. I mean, just look at him.”

Enjolras couldn’t, but managed to say shortly: “It is a risk we all acknowledged when we began our work.” This was a simple truth—so simple that he had found no need to reflect upon the possibility that some, if not all of them, would eventually be faced with giving up their lives for the Republic [...] Why, then, did he feel insincere, somehow, in voicing the notion aloud? Was it not true for Combeferre as much as for the rest of them?
In the wake of the July Revolution, the Amis' scramble to maintain their progress leaves Combeferre seriously injured, and Enjolras questioning things he had previously taken for granted.
