I—drunk!" said Caderousse; "well that's a good one! I could drink four more such bottles; they are no bigger than cologne flasks. Pere Pamphile, more wine!" and Caderousse rattled his glass upon the table.

Up to then, the joy of fulfilling, perhaps over-fulfilling, their duty had kept them in a state of exultation. Such a state is close to enthusiasm and that makes one insensible to the things of this earth. But their enthusiasm died down, and they had had gradually to return from the land of dreams to the world of reality.

Maximilien,' the count said, 'the friends whom we have lost do not rest in the earth, they are buried in our hearts, and that is how God wanted it, so that we should always be in their company. I have two friends who are always with me, in that way: one is the man who gave me life, the other is the one who gave me understanding. The spirit of both lives in me. I consult them when I am in doubt and, if I have done any good, I owe it to their advice. Look into your heart, Morrel, and ask it if you should continue to show me that sorry face.

Ah, now,' the count said casually, 'you must do as you wish, Viscount, because this is your business and you are in charge; but I must say that in your place I should say nothing of all these adventures. Your life story is a novel; and people, though they love novels bound between two yellow paper covers, are oddly suspicious of those which come to them in living vellum, even when they are as gilded as you are capable of being. Allow me to point out this difficulty to you, Monsieur le Vicomte, which is that no sooner will you have told your touching story to someone, that it will travel all round society, completely distorted. You will have to play the part of Antony, and Antony's day has passed somewhat. You might perhaps enjoy the reputation of a curiosity, but not everyone likes to be the centre of attention and the butt of comment. It might possibly fatigue you.
Alexandre Dumas (The Count of Monte Cristo)
Be nice to people on your way up because you might meet ’em on your way down. ALEXANDRE DUMAS PERE
Dan Meredith (How To Be F*cking Awesome)
Je suis un de ces êtres exceptionnels, oui, monsieur, et je crois que, jusqu'à ce jour, aucun homme ne s'est trouvé dans une position semblable à la mienne. Les royaumes des rois sont limités, soit par des montagnes, soit par des rivières, soit par un changement de mœurs, soit par une mutation de langage. Mon royaume, à moi, est grand comme le monde, car je ne suis ni Italien, ni Français, ni Indou, ni Américain, ni Espagnol: je suis cosmopolite.
