Quote #1

CYRANO Le Bret – I shall be up there presently In the moon – without having to invent Any flying machines! ROXANE What are you saying?... CYRANO The moon – yes, that would be the place for me – My kind of paradise! I shall find there Those other souls who should be friends of mine – Socrates – Galileo – LE BRET (Revolting) No! No! No! It is too idiotic – too unfair – Such a friend – such a poet – such a man – To die so – to die so! – (V. 326 – 334)


Even in death, Cyrano still tries to fight practicality with his outlandish dreaming and gallantry.
