He had sighed deeply, therefore, when accepting the gift of the pony from M.
He was not ignorant that such a beast was worth at least twenty livres; and the words which had accompanied the present were above all price. Never sell it; allow it to die tranquilly and honorably of old age, and if you make a campaign with it, take as much care of it as you would of an old servant.
At court, provided you have ever the honor to go there," continued M.
Twenty Years After by Alexandre Dumas
By the latter I mean your relatives and friends. Endure nothing from anyone except Monsieur the Cardinal and the king.
It is by his courage, please observe, by his courage alone, that a gentleman can make his way nowadays. Whoever hesitates for a second perhaps allows the bait to escape which during that exact second fortune held out to him. You are young. You ought to be brave for two reasons: the first is that you are a Gascon, and the second is that you are my son.

Never fear quarrels, but seek adventures. I have taught you how to handle a sword; you have thews of iron, a wrist of steel.
Fight on all occasions. Fight the more for duels being forbidden, since consequently there is twice as much courage in fighting.
I have nothing to give you, my son, but fifteen crowns, my horse, and the counsels you have just heard. Immediately, and according to custom, the ramparts of Fort Saint-Jean were covered with spectators; it is always an event at Marseilles for a ship to come into port, especially when this ship, like the Pharaon, has been built, rigged, and laden at the old Phocee docks, and belongs to an owner of the city.
The ship drew on and had safely passed the strait, which some volcanic shock has made between the Calasareigne and Jaros islands; had doubled Pomegue, and approached the harbor under topsails, jib, and spanker, but so slowly and sedately that the idlers, with that instinct which is the forerunner of evil, asked one another what misfortune could have happened on board. However, those experienced in navigation saw plainly that if any accident had occurred, it was not to the vessel herself, for she bore down with all the evidence of being skilfully handled, the anchor a-cockbill, the jib-boom guys already eased off, and standing by the side of the pilot, who was steering the Pharaon towards the narrow entrance of the inner port, was a young man, who, with activity and vigilant eye, watched every motion of the ship, and repeated each direction of the pilot.

He was a fine, tall, slim young fellow of eighteen or twenty, with black eyes, and hair as dark as a raven's wing; and his whole appearance bespoke that calmness and resolution peculiar to men accustomed from their cradle to contend with danger.
Morrel," replied the young man,—"a great misfortune, for me especially! Off Civita Vecchia we lost our brave Captain Leclere. Morrel; and I think you will be satisfied on that head.
But poor Captain Leclere—" "What happened to him? The young sailor gave a look to see that his orders were promptly and accurately obeyed, and then turned again to the owner.Morrel," replied the young man,—"a great misfortune, for me especially! It was worth while, truly," added the young man with a melancholy smile, "to make war against the English for ten years, and to die in his bed at last, like everybody else.
If not, why, there would be no promotion; and since you assure me that the cargo—" "Is all safe and sound, M. Never fear quarrels, but seek adventures. Your mother will add to them a recipe for a certain balsam, which she had from a Bohemian and which has the miraculous virtue of curing all wounds that do not reach the heart.
These successes gave him sufficient income to write full-time. As an adult, he used his slave grandmother's surname of Dumas, as his father had done as an adult. For our young man had a steed which was the observed of all observers. Endure nothing from anyone except Monsieur the Cardinal and the king.
