.. Ai ka qenë mrekullisht i gjallë dhe njerëzit, të cilët i tremben më shumë mërzitjes se shqetësimeve, u janë mirënjohës atyre që i bëjnë të jetojnë me një ritëm më të shpejtë dhe më të fortë.

Ndërkohë që po e trajtonin si gjysmë – perëndi, trupi i tij filloi t'i kujtonte se edhe ai ishte i vdekshëm. Pështyu gjak. I thanë që të thërrisnin për një prift. I gjithë Parisi përgjonte sjelljen e tij. Ajo qe e dykuptimtë.

Ai pati frikë mos hidhej në gropë si i pafe dhe kërkoi të rrëfehej publikisht, ashtu siç bëhej në shekujt e parë të kishës. Abati Gotje nuk pranoi dhe i tha që të bënte një deklaratë me shkrim, ku të shprehte ndjenjat e tij. Ai nuk pranoi dhe e shtangu priftin duke i thënë: "Mjaft për sot! Të mos e përlotim skenën!"
