Quote #10

"So, do live and be happy, children dear to my heart, and never forget that, until the day when God deigns to unveil the future to mankind, all human wisdom is contained in these two words: 'wait' and 'hope'!" (117.150)

The Count strips away all the dirt and the grit and the blood and gets down to the wholesome core. The Count of Monte Cristo isn't just about revenge – it's about patience and optimism.
