Are they perhaps related?

When Giscard was tearfully recomending the Constitution to the peoples of Europe he said..
“In one's life, one is, if one is lucky, permitted once or twice to make a difference, to touch the hem of history”.
Valery Giscard D’Estaing
A revious European politition once said something similar, odd choice of influence I reckon, if you are French.
“A statesman...must wait until he hears the steps of God sounding through events, then leap up and grasp the hem of His garment.”
Otto Von Bismark
