Dangerous Liaisons (1988)
Madame de Rosemonde: I'm sorry to say this, but, those who are most worthy of love are never made happy by it.
Madame Marie de Tourvel: But, why? Why should that be?
Madame de Rosemonde: Do you still think men love the way we do? No... men enjoy the happiness they feel. We can only enjoy the happiness we give. They are not capable of devoting themselves exclusively to one person. So to hope to be made happy by love is a certain cause of grief.

Madame de Rosemonde: [referring to the Vicomte de Valmont] What is true of most men is doubly so of him.


Valmont (1989)
Madame de Rosemonde: Ah, my sweet girl. If I understand what these people have been saying, you have a dilemma.
Cecile: I do?
Madame de Rosemonde: Tell me, if it were up to you, would you rather marry that Monsieur de... eh...
Mertuil: Gercourt.
Madame de Rosemonde: Exactly, Gercourt. Or the other one? The one with the harp.
Mertuil: Well, I... I... I'll do whatever my Maman wants me to do.
Valmont: But that is not what my aunt is asking you. Forget Maman. If you had the choice, who would you pick? You, yourself?
Madame de Rosemonde: Oh! I... I... I guess I would marry Monsieur de Gercourt, and... keep Monsieur Danceny for a lover?
