"Quant aux femmes de ces histoires, pourquoi ne seraient-elles pas les Diaboliques ? N'ont-elles pas assez de diabolisme en leur personne pour mériter ce doux nom ? Diaboliques ! il n'y en a pas une seule ici qui ne le soit à quelque degré. Il n'y en a pas une seule à qui on puisse dire le mot de "Mon ange" sans exagérer. Comme le Diable, qui était un ange aussi, mais qui a culbuté, - si elles sont des anges, c'est comme lui, - los angeles tête en bas, le... reste en haut !"
