Quote #10

"Father, they are asking me for proof," said Benedetto. "Do you want me to provide it?"

"No," M. de Villefort stammered in a strangled voice. "no, there is no need."

"What do you mean, no need?" cried the judge.

"I mean," said the crown prosecutor, "that I should struggle in vain against the fate that holds me in its grasp. Gentlemen, I realize I am in the hands of a vengeful God." (110.68-70)

Villefort, sworn to uphold the law, is ready to surrender to it when the time finally comes. If anything, his knowledge of the law assures him of his guilt.
