Suffering Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

ESTELE; You haven't a coward's chin, or a coward's mouth, or a coward's voice, or a coward's hair. And it's for your mouth, your hair, your voice, I love.
GARCIN: Do you mean this? REALLY mean it?
ESTELLE: Shall I swear it?
GARCIN: Then I snap my fingers at them all, those below and those in here. Estelle, we shall climb out of hell. (474-9)

Is Garcin genuinely relieved of his "agony of the mind" at this point, or is he lying to himself again?
