From Madame Butterfly (1932)
Cho-Cho San: Do not weep, Mama-san.
Cho-Cho's mother: But you are so young and never have you been away from home before.
Cho-Cho San: But consider Mama-san, soon I shall be very great geisha and then you and the august grandfather and the little brother will have much money.
Cho-Cho's grandfather: This is no place for the daughter of my son, the daughter of a noble samurai. I should never have consented to your coming here.
Cho-Cho San: But we must live and I'm the only one who can work and help.
Cho-Cho's grandfather: Your father died with honour when he could no longer live with honour.
Cho-Cho San: Is it then so shameful to make people happy? To sing for them, to make music, and dance? And I may make a fine marriage. Then I can buy you many gifts
