One Pure Possession

“I know, you will leave me with nothing–neither the laurel nor the rose. Take it all then! There is one possession I take with me from this place. Tonight when I stand before God–and bow low to him, so that my forehead brushes his footstool, the firmament–I will stand again and proudly show Him that one pure possession–which I have never ceased to cherish or to share with all–“
– Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac, Act 5
