Sir George CarewEdit

  • A man cannot destroy the savage in him by denying its impulses. They only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.
  • My dear Lady Camden, a beautiful woman like you is Paradise for the eyes - - but Hell for the soul!

DialogueEdit

Sir George Carew: In devoting yourself to others, Jekyll, aren't you neglecting the development of your own life?
Dr. Henry Jekyll: Isn't it by serving others that one develops oneself, Sir George?
Sir George Carew: Which self? A man has two—as he has two hands. Because I use my right hand, should I never use my left? [Carew pointedly moves both hands independently, making his point known to the whole table] Your really strong man fears nothing. It is the weak one that is afraid of—experience.
