Penny Dreadful Quotes: Vanessa Ives: Vanessa. And where is she? When did we lose her, Ethan? She was standing in a quiet room, gazing up at a cross. She reached out, took it from the wall and put it in the fire. And then she was lost. And so alone. Ethan Chandler: You are not alone. You never were. I have stood at the very edge. I have looked into the abyss. If I'd taken one more step, I would have fallen. But no matter how far I ran away from God, he was still waiting ahead. Vanessa Ives: Not for me. Ethan Chandler: For us all.
