Help yourself, and Heaven will help you (French: Aide-toi, le ciel t'aidera, simply called Aide-toi) was a French association led by Adolphe Thiers (1797–1877), French politician, who was working for more democracy under the French Restoration (1814, 1830), and Charles X of France, king from 1824 to 1830.[1]
