Which of the following quotes exemplifies Reverend Parris's true motivation in Act I?

A

"Parris: Mr. Corey, you will look far for a man of my kind at sixty pound a year! I am not used to this poverty; I left a thrifty business in the Barbados to serve the Lord."

B

"Parris: I do not preach for children, Rebecca. It is not the children who are unmindful of their obligations toward this ministry."

C

"Parris: Where is my wood? My contract provides I be supplied with all my firewood. I am waiting since November for a stick, and even in November I had to show my frostbitten hands like some London beggar!"

D

"Parris: I want a mark of confidence, is all! I am your third preacher in seven years. I do not wish to be put out like the cat whenever some majority feels the whim. You people seem not to comprehend that a minister is the Lord's man in the parish; a minister is not to be so lightly crossed and contradicted."

E

"He is not coming to look for devils."
