"What he reproves deserves reproof,
He's out to save your souls, and all of you
Must love him, as my son would have you do." (1.1.34)
"I tell you that you're blest to have Tartuffe
Dwelling, as my son's guest, beneath this roof;
That Heaven has sent him to forestall its wrath
By leading you once more, to the true path;
That all he reprehends is reprehensible,
And that you'd better heed him, and be sensible." (1.1.34)
"To keep his precepts is to be reborn,
And view this dunghill of a world with scorn.
Yes, thanks to him I'm a changed man indeed.
Under his tutelage my soul's been freed
From earthly loves and every human tie:
My mother, children, brother, and wife." (1.5.4)
