    INEZ: One always dies too soon— or too late. And yet one's whole life is complete at that moment, with a line drawn neatly under it, ready for the summing up. You are— your life, and nothing else.
    Madina Seytmuradovahas quoted3 years ago
    You remember all we were told about the torture-chambers, the fire and brimstone, the "burning marl." Old wives' tales!There's no need for red-hot pokers. HELL IS-OTHER PEOPLE

    It's I you must convince

    I'm a crowd all by myself

    A man is what he wills himself to be
    Madina Seytmuradovahas quoted3 years ago
    That's right! That's right! Trust away! She wants a man- that far you can trust her- she wants a man's arm round her waist, a man's smell, a man's eyes glowing with desire. And that's all she wants. She'd assure you you were God Almighty if she thought it would give you pleasure
    Madina Seytmuradovahas quoted3 years ago
    But if you'll make the effort, if you'll only WILL it hard enough, I dare say we can really love each other. Look at it this way. A thousand of them are proclaiming I'm a coward; but what do numbers matter? If there's someone, just one person, to say quite positively I did not run away, that I'm not the sort who runs away, that I'm brave and decent and the rest of it- well, that one person's faith would save me. Will you have that faith in me? Then I shall love you and cherish you for ever. Estelle- will you

    If you knew how little I care! Coward or hero, it's all one- provided he kisses well
    Madina Seytmuradovahas quoted3 years ago
    That's the question. Was that your real motive? No doubt you argued it out with yourself, you weighed the pros and cons, you found good reasons for what you did. But fear and hatred and all the dirty little instincts one keeps dark-- they're motives too
    Madina Seytmuradovahas quoted3 years ago
    So carry on, Mr.
    Garcin, and try to be honest with yourself- for once
