{{Citation|Le type même de l'ingénieur avec sa conception, ses ambitions et ses limitations caractéristiques était créé ici-même. Cet esprit de synthèse qui ne verrait aucun sens dans quelque chose qui n'aurait pas été délibérément construit, cet amour de l'organisation qui émerge des sources jumelles des pratiques militaires et des pratiques d'ingénierie, la prédilection esthétique pour tout ce qui avait été consciemment construit sur tout ce qui s'était « juste » contenté de « pousser », fut un nouvel élément fort qui s'ajouta à l'ardeur révolutionnaire des jeunes polytechniciens et qui au cours du temps commença même à la remplacer. Les caractéristiques étranges de ce nouveau type qui, comme il a été dit, « s'enorgueillissait d'avoir des solutions plus précises et plus satisfaisantes que tout autre pour toutes les questions politiques, religieuses et sociales », et qui « se risquait à créer une religion comme on apprend à créer un pont ou une route à l'École » furent très tôt constaté et leur propension à devenir socialiste souvent soulignée.|langue=en|original=The very type of the engineer with his characteristic outlook, ambitions, and limitations was here created. That synthetic spirit which would not recognize sense in anything that had not been deliberately constructed, that love of organization that springs from the twin sources of military and engineering practices, the aesthetic predilection for everything that had been consciously constructed over anything that had "just grown," was a strong new element which was added to and in the course of time even began to replace the revolutionary ardor of the young polytechnicians. The peculiar characteristics of this new type who, as it has been said, "prided themselves on having more precise and more satisfactory solutions than anyone else for all political, religious and social questions," and who "ventured to create a religion as one learns at the Ecole to build a bridge or a road" was early noticed, and their propensity to become socialists has often been pointed out.|précisions=Traduit par Wikiquote.}}
