Innocence Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

At last [Giovanelli] said, "She was the most beautiful young lady I ever saw, and the most amiable"; and then he added in a moment, "and she was the most innocent."

Winterbourne looked at him and presently repeated his words, "And the most innocent?"

"The most innocent!" (2.262-4)

This is Giovanelli's Bill Clintonest moment: He did not have sexual relations with that woman.
