Jean Valjean: How have you come to grief in a place such as this? Fantine: M'sieur, don't mock me now, I pray. It's hard enough I've lost my pride. You let your foreman send me away - yes, you were there, and turned aside. I never did no wrong Jean Valjean: Is it true, what I have done? To an innocent soul? Had I only known then... Fantine: My daughter's close to dying. If there's a God above... He'd let me die instead... Jean Valjean: In His name my task has just begun, I will see it done!
But remember this, my brother, see in this some higher plan. You must use this precious silver to become an honest man. By the witness of the martyrs, by the Passion and the Blood, God has raised you out of darkness; I have bought your soul for God!
