Favorite Quotes: Les Enfants du Paradis (1945)

"A kick in the ass, if well delivered, is a sure laugh. It's true. There's an entire order, a science, a style of kicks in the ass."
"I'm dying of silence, like others die of hunger and thirst."
"You were right, Garance. Love is simple."
"The mere thought of them killing each other, over a woman, because of me, comforts me."
"Not only are you rich, but you want to be loved as if you are poor."
"Jealousy belongs to all if a woman belongs to no one."
