A kiss is a secret which takes the lips for the ear.

A kiss is a secret which takes the lips for the ear.

— Edmond Rostand

All our souls are written in our eyes.

— Edmond Rostand

And what is a kiss, specifically? A pledge properly sealed, a promise seasoned to taste, a vow stamped with the immediacy of a lip, a rosy circle drawn around the verb 'to love.' A kiss is a message too intimate for the ear, infinity captured in the bee's brief visit to a flower, secular communication with an aftertaste of heaven, the pulse rising from the heart to utter its name on a lover's lip: 'Forever.

— Edmond Rostand

Well when I write my book, and tell the tale of my adventures
all these little stars that shake out of my cloak
I must save those to use for asterisks!

— Edmond Rostand

My nose is Gargantuan! You little Pig-snout, you tiny Monkey-Nostrils, you virtually invisible Pekinese-Puss, don't you realize that a nose like mine is both scepter and orb, a monument to me superiority? A great nose is the banner of a great man, a generous heart, a towering spirit, an expansive soul
such as I unmistakably am, and such as you dare not to dream of being, with your bilious weasel's eyes and no nose to keep them apart! With your face as lacking in all distinction
as lacking, I say, in interest, as lacking in pride, in imagination, in honesty, in lyricism
in a word, as lacking in nose as that other offensively bland expanse at the opposite end of your cringing spine
which I now remove from my sight by stringent application of my boot!

— Edmond Rostand

Oh, don't take it so hard. I drove into this madness. Every woman needs a little madness in her life.

— Edmond Rostand

I carry my adornments on my soul.
I do not dress up like a popinjay;
But inwardly, I keep my daintiness.
I do not bear with me, by any chance,
An insult not yet washed away- a conscience
Yellow with unpurged bile- an honor frayed
To rags, a set of scruples badly worn.
I go caparisoned in gems unseen,
Trailing white plumes of freedom, garlanded
With my good name- no figure of a man,
But a soul clothed in shining armor, hung
With deeds for decorations, twirling- thus-
A bristling wit, and swinging at my side
Courage, and on the stones of this old town
Making the sharp truth ring, like golden spurs!

— Edmond Rostand

ROXANE. One hundred men against one: you!-So, good bye!-We are the best of friends, are we not? CYRANO. Assuredly, we are!

— Edmond Rostand

A large nose is in fact the sign of an affable man, good, courteous, witty, liberal, courageous, such as I am.

— Edmond Rostand

I love you more than yesterday, less than tomorrow.

— Edmond Rostand

And if kisses in these words could travel too, Madam, you'd read this letter with your lips.

— Edmond Rostand

I would die at the stake rather than change a semi-colon!

— Edmond Rostand
