Candide Wealth Quotes

How we cite our quotes: (Chapter.Paragraph) We used the translation found on Project Gutenberg.

Quote #10

"I will not suffer," said the Baron, "such meanness on her part, and such insolence on yours; I will never be reproached with this scandalous thing; my sister's children would never be able to enter the church in Germany. No; my sister shall only marry a Baron of the empire." (29.4)

Wealth once again proves futile to Candide, as it is unable to sway Cunégonde’s brother to approve the marriage.
