From Les Misérables
Marius, wake up! What's wrong today? You look as if you've seen a ghost.
Some wine and say what's going on!
A ghost, you say? A ghost, maybe. She was just like a ghost to me. One minute there, then she was gone.
I am agog! I am aghast! Is Marius in love at last? I've never heard him "ooh" and "aah"! You talk of battles to be won, and here he comes like Don Juan. It is better than an opera!
It is time for us all to decide who we are. Do we fight for the right to a night at the opera now? Have you asked of yourself what's the price you might pay? Is this simply a game for a rich young boy to play? The colors of the world are changing day by day! Red, the blood of angry men! Black, the dark of ages past! Red, a world about to dawn! Black, the night that ends at last!
