Quotes from

Duc de Praslin: Would it be any comfort to you to know that my only happiness will be in knowing I am sharing your loneliness.


Duc de Praslin: Oh, please don't go. Don't even move.
Henriette Deluzy-Desportes: Why?
Duc de Praslin: I might say don't move because, as you sit there, the firelight is so beautiful on your hair. I might say don't move because this is All Souls' Day, and you mustn't disturb the spirits. And again, I might say don't move because this is a moment so full of understanding that I can't bear to see it come to an end.


Henriette Deluzy-Desportes: If love is right, it is the most precious gift in the world. But you must be sure - very sure - that it is right, for if it isn't, there is no worse agony, nothing more bitter, nothing more lonely to be imagined.
