Quotes from the text of Cinq Mars by Alfred de Vigny

     A cat is a very fine animal. It is a drawing-room tiger
     But how avenge one's self on silence?
     Deny the spirit of self-sacrifice
     Hatred of everything which is superior to myself
     Hermits can not refrain from inquiring what men say of them
     Princes ought never to be struck, except on the head
     These ideas may serve as opium to produce a calm
     They loved not as you love, eh?
