Which of these statements BEST illustrates Roger Chillingworth's motivation for seeking the identity of Hester's lover?


"I seek no vengeance, plot no evil against thee. Between me and thee, the scale hangs fairly balanced. But, Hester, the man who lives has wronged us both."


"I shall seek this man as I have sought truth in books; as I have sought gold in alchemy."


"I shall see him tremble. I shall feel myself shudder, suddenly and unawares. Sooner or later, he must needs be mine!"


"He bears no letter of infamy wrought into his garment, as thou dots; but I shall read it on his heart."


"No matter whether of love of hate; no matter whether of right or wrong! Thou and thine, Hester Prynne, belong to me. My home is where thou art, and where he is."
