“Once a thief, forever a thief. What you want you always steal!
You would trade your life for mine? Yes, Valjean, you want a deal!
Shoot me now for all I care! If you let me go, beware, you’ll still answer to Javert!”
– Javert

“You are wrong, and always have been wrong.
I’m a man, no worse than any man.
You are free, and there are no conditions, no bargains or petitions.
There’s nothing that I blame you for. You’ve done your duty, nothing more.”
– Jean Valjean

(from “Les Miserables”)
