Quotes from

Pierre: There on the left, the lights in her rooms are burning, and there on the right, the lights in his room are burning and between them is that long passage where the lights never burn. Suppose some night you saw that passage lighted? Would you share your feeling then with all the world?
Henriette Deluzy-Desportes: You'd better go now, Pierre.
Pierre: I'll go. I'll go, because I see it's too late to give you any warning. Your caught in the net and you don't even wish to escape. Goodnight mademoiselle.

Henriette Deluzy-Desportes: I can't help but feel this time you'll pay very dearly.
Duc de Praslin: I always pay. Sometimes I pay most for what I never had. It is not unfair that for a few days I've had what I can never pay for.

Henriette Deluzy-Desportes: In your unhappiness you reached out your hand for help and in my loneliness I took it.
