Do you know what it is to love a woman like me?

I have no need of homage, but of affection. I must be loved without a rival, without reserve and forever; you must be ready to sacrifice everything to me, fortune, reputation, duty, business, principles, family - everything , monsieur, because I shall place the same absolute devotion in my scale, and I wish them to balance. You see that you cannot love me like that!!
