Edmond Rostand

“ROXANE:
Live, for I love you!

CYRANO:
No, In fairy tales
When to the ill-starred Prince the lady says 'I love you!' all his ugliness fades fast--
But I remain the same, up to the last!

ROXANE:
I have marred your life--I, I!

CYRANO:
You blessed my life!
Never on me had rested woman's love.
My mother even could not find me fair:
I had no sister; and, when grown a man,
I feared the mistress who would mock at me.
But I have had your friendship--grace to you
A woman's charm has passed across my path.


Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac
