[Cordelia has been telling Charles that she has recently met Sebastian living a dissolute and drunken life in a Tunisian monastery after his lover has killed himself
] Charles Ryder
: It's not what one would have foretold. I suppose he doesn't suffer. Cordelia Flyte
: Oh, yes, I think he does. One has no idea what the suffering may be - to be as maimed as he is. No dignity, no power of will. No-one is truly holy without suffering.
: Tell me, Charles. When you first met me last night, did you think "Poor Cordelia. Such an engaging child, grown into a plain and pious spinster, full of good works"? Did you think "thwarted"? Charles Ryder
] Yes, I did. But now I'm not so sure. Cordelia Flyte
: It's funny, you know. That's exactly the word I thought for you and Julia when I saw you up in the nursery with Nanny - "thwarted passion", I thought.
: If you weren't an agnostic I should ask you for five shillings to buy a black god-daughter. Charles Ryder
: Nothing would surprise me about your religion. Cordelia Flyte
: It's a new thing that a priest started last term. You send five bob to some nuns in Africa and they christen a baby and name her after you. I have got six black Cordelias. Isn't that lovely?
