Eugénie Grandet - Honoré de Balzac

This quote was added by progression
Financièrement parlant, monsieur Grandet tenait du tigre et du boa : il savait se coucher, se blottir, envisager longtemps sa proie, sauter dessus ; puis il ouvrait la gueule de sa bourse, y engloutissait une charge d'écus, et se couchait tranquillement, comme le serpent qui digère, impassible, froid, méthodique.
