Best Quotes of The snow of Kilimanjaro
Countess Liz: Oh, I just devoured your last book!
Harry Street: [sarcastically] Well, I hope it didn’t give you a bellyache!
Uncle Bill: A man should never lose his hand at hunting.
Harry Street: Darling, there’s a war going on there.
Cynthia Green: There’s a war going on here too right at this table! There’s a dandy little war going on!
Cynthia Green: What is the matter with me, Mr. Johnson?
Johnson: Everybody isn’t required to like Africa, you know.
Cynthia Green: I try to put on a show because I know he loves it so. But all of it – the hunting, the killing – terrifies me.
Johnson: See here, this thing that he was talking about – the excitement – call it courage. The way he feels, it is a man’s feeling, natural in a man, grows in a man, and makes him a man. Not particularly to his credit if he has it but something lacking if he hasn’t. A woman shows her courage in other ways, – many ways.
Helen: Hello, Molo, you white man’s burden, you!
Molo, African Servant: [talks in an African language]
Helen: Darling, we only got the first aid book.
Harry Street: [looking at the witch doctor] What’s he going to do, sprinkle me with monkey dust?
Harry Street: A hair from the tail of a leopard?
Johnson: Why is it everyone who comes to Africa has to write a book about it? One silly beggar even dedicated his to me! Never came back or I’d have shot him in the pants!
Harry Street: [narrating] And there was never another time like that first time in Africa.
Harry Street: [narrating] I suppose it was the elusiveness of Liz which was her main attraction. She was something to hunt down and trap and capture. Countess Elizabeth – Frigid Liz – the semi-iceberg from the semi-tropics!
Dr. Simmons: [referring to Cynthia’s miscarriage] Do you actually mean you didn’t know about the
Countess Liz: I love you as much as I can.
Cynthia Green: [of the saxophone player] Hasn’t that African got any piety at all?
Kingdom of Heaven (2005) Top Image Quotes and Sayings
As the film begins, a title card opens the story, detailing its setting and historical backgrounds:
“It is almost one hundred years since Christian armies from Europe seized Jerusalem. Europe suffers in the grip of repression and poverty. Peasant and lord alike flee to the Holy Land in search of fortune or salvation. One Knight returns home in search of his son.”
How historically accurate is the movie the Kingdom of Heaven? The Kingdom of Heaven is a 2005 historical epic directed by Ridley Scott, who directed some of the most memorable movies of recent decades such as Gladiator. The historical epic was produced in Spain and Morocco.
Balian of Ibelin: What is Jerusalem worth?
Hospitaller: I put no stock in religion. By the word religion, I have seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the will of God. Holiness is in right action and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves, and goodness. What God desires is here
[points to head]
Hospitaller: and here
[points to heart]
Hospitaller: and what you decide to do every day, you will be a good man – or not.
Balian of Ibelin: What man is a man who does not make the world better.
King Baldwin IV: Come forward. I am glad to meet Godfrey’s son. He was one of my greatest teachers. He was there when, playing with the other boys, my arm was cut. It was he, not my father’s physicians, who noticed that I felt no pain. He wept when he gave my father the news… that I am a leper. The Saracens say that this disease is God’s vengeance against the vanity of our kingdom. As wretched as I am, these Arabs believe that the chastisement that awaits me in the hell is far more severe and lasting. If that’s true, I call it unfair. Come. Sit.
[they sit down on opposite sides of a chessboard]
King Baldwin IV: Do you play?
Balian of Ibelin: No.
King Baldwin IV: The whole world is in chess. Any move can be the death of you. Do anything except remain where you started, and you can’t be sure of your end. Were you sure of your end once?
Balian of Ibelin: I was.
King Baldwin IV: What was it?
Balian of Ibelin: To be buried a hundred yards from where I was born.
King Baldwin IV: And now?
Balian of Ibelin: Now I sit in Jerusalem, and look upon a king.
King Baldwin IV: [Baldwin chuckles] When I was sixteen, I won a great victory. I felt in that moment I would live to be a hundred. Now I know I shall not see thirty. None of us know our end, really, or what hand will guide us there. A king may move a man, a father may claim a son, but that man can also move, and only then does that man truly begin his own game. Remember that howsoever you are played or by whom, your soul is in your keeping alone, even though those who presume to play you be kings or men of power. When you stand before God, you cannot say, “But I was told by others to do this,” or that virtue was not convenient at the time. This will not suffice. Remember that.
Balian of Ibelin: I will.
Saladin: Who defends?
Imad: Balian of Ibelin, the son of Godfrey.
Saladin: Godfrey? Godfrey nearly killed me in Lebanon. Truly, I did not know he had a son.
Imad: It was his son at Kerak.
Saladin: The one you let live?
Saladin: Perhaps you should not have.
Imad: Perhaps I should have had a different teacher.
Balian of Ibelin: [Saladin has just offered safe conduct in his terms] When the Christians captured Jerusalem, they massacred every Muslim in the city walls…
Saladin: I am not those men. I am Salahudin.
[with more emphasis]
Godfrey of Ibelin: Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright that God may love thee. Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong. That is your oath.
Godfrey of Ibelin: [cuffs Balian with the back of his hand] And that’s so you remember it.
Hospitaller: Arise a knight and Baron of Ibelin.
Godfrey of Ibelin: You are not what you were born, but what you have within yourself to be.
Balian of Ibelin: God will understand, my lord. And if he doesn’t, then he is not God and we need not worry.
Saladin: Will you yield the city?
Balian of Ibelin: Before I lose it, I will burn it to the ground. Your holy places – ours. Every last thing in Jerusalem that drives men mad.
Saladin: I wonder if it would not be better if you did.
King Baldwin IV: A King may move a man, a father may claim a son, but remember that even when those who move you be Kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God, you cannot say, “But I was told by others to do thus.” Or that, “Virtue was not convenient at the time.” This will not suffice. Remember that.
Saladin: [to Guy de Lusignan] A king does not kill a king. Were you not close enough to a great king to learn by his example?
Balian of Ibelin: And peace be with you.
Balian of Ibelin: It is a kingdom of conscience or nothing.
Balian of Ibelin: You go with the army?
Hospitaller: My order is with the army.
Balian of Ibelin: You go to certain death.
Hospitaller: All death is certain. I shall tell your father what I’ve seen you become.
Imad: Your quality will be known among your enemies before ever you meet them.
Balian of Ibelin: [praying to his wife] how can you be in hell when you’re in my heart.
English Sergeant: [walking along the waterfront at Messina] When we took the Holy Land, we took the Saracen trading ports. The Italian ships carry silks and spices… and pilgrims if they have money. And Italy becomes rich, as the Savior intended.
Balian of Ibelin: [Balian sees a group of men praying on the beach] Who are those men?
English Sergeant: Muslims. Saracens.
Balian of Ibelin: And they are allowed their prayers?
English Sergeant: If they pay the tax. “Subhana Rabbi’l Adhim.”
[he turns to Balian]
English Sergeant: “Praise be to God. It is proper to praise him.”
Balian of Ibelin: Sounds like our prayers.
Godfrey of Ibelin: I once fought two days with an arrow through my testicle.
Bishop, Patriarch of Jerusalem: Convert to Islam… repent later!
Balian of Ibelin: You’ve taught me a lot about religion, your Eminence.
Hospitaller: Are you sorry for all your sins?
Godfrey of Ibelin: [looking at Balian, his illegitimate son] For all but one.
Tiberias: But Saladin and the king between them would make a better world.
Hospitaller: If it lives only for a while, Tiberias, it still has lived.
Bishop, Patriarch of Jerusalem: The things that we have left undone plague us as death comes. That is why to the dying there is no comfort but the Lord.
King Baldwin IV: Spare me your sermon. Go and prepare your people for the coronation of my nephew.
Bishop, Patriarch of Jerusalem: Your confession, my lord.
King Baldwin IV: I shall confess to God when I see him… not to you. Now, leave me.
Hospitaller: One may stare into the light, until one becomes the light. I’ve done it many times.
Balian of Ibelin: [throws a rock at a bush that catches fire by the spark] There’s your religion. One spark, a creosote bush. There’s your Moses. I did not hear it speak.
Hospitaller: That does not mean that there is no God. Do you love her?
Balian of Ibelin: Yes.
Hospitaller: The heart will mend. Your duty is to the people of the city. I go to pray.
Balian of Ibelin: For what?
Hospitaller: For the strength to endure what is to come.
Balian of Ibelin: And what is to come?
Hospitaller: The reckoning is to come for what was done one hundred years before. The Muslims will never forget. Nor should they.
[the Hospitaler slowly walks away as a second bush several yards from the burning one catches fire. The Hospitaler is nowhere to be seen in the clear and open desert]
Balian of Ibelin: What could a king ask of a man like me?
Godfrey of Ibelin: A better world than has ever been seen. A kingdom of conscience. A kingdom of heaven.
7 of 7 found this interesting | Share this Saladin: I pray you to pull back your cavalry and leave this matter to me.
King Baldwin IV: I pray you retire unharmed to Damascus. Reynald of Chatillon will be punished. I swear it. Withdraw or we will all die here.
Reynald de Chatillon: [at a hearing in Tiberias’ chambers] Who says I raid?
Tiberias: That witness… all of Jerusalem… Holy God… and me.
Reynald de Chatillon: That “witness,” if you call him that, is a Saracen. He lies.
Tiberias: There will come a day, Reynald de Chatillon, when you are not protected by your title.
Reynald de Chatillon: Oh? When will that be? Alert me, Tiberias, when men are equal and the Kingdom of Heaven has arrived.
Tiberias: Those Templars have been hung for a raid that I KNOW you commanded!
Reynald de Chatillon: Prove it. I will wait at Kerak until you do.
Tiberias: The king will take your castle of Kerak, Reynald.
Reynald de Chatillon: Try to take it, Tiberias. I’ll be there.
[he walks out with a dirty look at the Saracen witness]
Muslim Grandee: [in Arabic] You’re letting him go? Why are you letting him go?
Tiberias: I cannot protect your caravans unless you agree to be escorted by our soldiers.
Muslim Grandee: [in English] I trade to make money, not to offend God by associating with Christians.
Tiberias: [hefting a sack of money] But you will take Christian gold.
Muslim Grandee: Gold is gold.
[Tiberias tosses it to him]
Tiberias: Of course.
Mullah: [just before the final assault on Jerusalem] Brothers! Brothers! God has sent you this day! You will take no prisoners! As they did, so shall it be done! Allahu akbar!
Muslim Soldiers: Allahu akbar!
Mullah: Allahu akbar!
Muslim Soldiers: Allahu akbar!
Mullah: Allahu akbar!
Muslim Soldiers: Allahu akbar!
Sybilla: There will be a day when you will wish you had done a little evil to do a greater good.
Hospitaller: Holiness is in right action and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves.
Bishop: A law can go too far… it can go too far. I ask myself, ‘would Jesus do thusly?’ There is so much done in Christendom of which Christ would be incapable.
Tiberias: That I would rather live with men than kill them is certainly why you are alive.
Guy de Lusignan: [Chuckles] That sort of Christianity has its uses, I suppose…
Balian of Ibelin: How can you be in hell, when you are in my heart?
Odo: Have you been at war?
Balian of Ibelin: On a horse. And as an engineer also.
Odo: Against whom and for whom did you fight?
Balian of Ibelin: For one lord against another, on a point which cannot be remembered.
Odo: There’s better game now: one God against another. The pay is proportionate.
odfrey of Ibelin: Do you know what lies in the Holy Land? A new world. A man who, in France, had not a house, is, in the Holy Land, the master of a city. He who was the master of a city begs in the gutter. There, at the end of the world, you are not what you were born, but what you have it in yourself to be.
Balian of Ibelin: I have to find forgiveness. That’s all I know.
Godfrey of Ibelin: Whatever your position, you are of my house, and that means you will serve the King of Jerusalem.
Balian of Ibelin: What could a king ask of a man like me?
Godfrey of Ibelin: A better world than has ever been seen. A kingdom of conscience. A kingdom of heaven. There is peace between Christian and Muslim. We live together, or between Saladin and the king, we try. Did you think that lay at the end of a Crusade?
[Balian shakes his head]
Godfrey of Ibelin: It does. My son, you are all that survives me. Do not disappoint me.
Tiberias: There is a rumour. We must condemn it immediately.
Sybilla: Call it treason. And kill those who whisper it.
Tiberias: The rumour will die if we show the boy as active…
Sybilla: [bursts out] How long before he wears a mask? Will you have one made for him? How did my boy deserve it? Jerusalem is dead, Tiberias. No kingdom is worth my son alive in hell. I will go to hell instead.
[Tiberias steps forth and hugs Sibylla]
Imad: [a Saracen knight yells at Balian in Arabic] He says, that is his horse.
Balian of Ibelin: Why would it be his horse?
Imad: Because it is on his land.
Balian of Ibelin: I took this horse from the sea.
Imad: [Imad translates, the knight yells again] He says you are a great liar and he will fight you because you are a liar.
Balian of Ibelin: I have no desire to fight.
Imad: Then you must give him the horse.
[Balian draws his sword]
Hospitaller: [while tending to Godfrey’s wounds] When shall we stop this madness?
Godfrey of Ibelin: It will soon be beyond my concern.
[Guy de Lusignan and his knights walk over to the campsite]
Guy de Lusignan: [pointing at Balian] Who is this?
Godfrey of Ibelin: My son.
Guy de Lusignan: Would I had fought you when you were still capable of making bastards.
Godfrey of Ibelin: I knew your mother when she was making hers. Fortunately, you’re too old to be one of mine.
Guy de Lusignan: [Guy laughs again] All will be settled.
Godfrey of Ibelin: It was not that they had no right to take you, it was the way they asked.
Balian of Ibelin: They had the right to take me.
Godfrey of Ibelin: So do I.
Title card: The King, Richard the Lionheart, went on to the Holy Land and crusaded for three years. His struggle to regain Jerusalem ended in an uneasy truce with Saladin. Nearly a thousand years later, peace in the Kingdom of Heaven remains elusive.
Nasir: [to Balian] … and if God does not love you, how could you have done the things you have done?
Reynald: [after raiding a peaceful caravan] I am what I am. Someone has to be.
Saladin: When I’m not King, I quake for Islam.
Tiberias: [to Balian] May God be with you, he’s no longer with me.
Hospitaller: The blacksmith is the man you seek. His name is Balian. But know that he mourns. The burial that we passed at the crossroads was for his wife. Their child died. She was overcome by grief and killed herself.
Godfrey of Ibelin: Do you still advise what you advised upon the road?
Hospitaller: I do, my lord.
Richard Coeur de Lion: We come by this road to find Balian, who was a defender of Jerusalem.
Balian of Ibelin: I am the blacksmith.
Richard Coeur de Lion: And I am the king of England.
Balian of Ibelin: [pauses] I am the blacksmith.
King Baldwin IV: If you continue like this, I shall have to find some use for you. If God can spare you, that is.
Balian of Ibelin: God does not know me.
King Baldwin IV: Yes, but I do.
Imad: This is not a very good horse… I will not keep him.

Mufasa: Everything you see – exists together in a delicate balance. While others search for what they can take, a true king searches for what he can give.

Simba: I’m nobody.
Rafiki: Everybody is somebody. So I ask again, who are you?
Young Simba: What’s a motto?
Timon: Nothing, what’s a motto-with-you?
Mufasa: Everything the light touches… is our kingdom. But a king’s time as ruler rises and falls like the sun. One day, the sun will set on my time here, and will rise with you as the new king.
Mufasa: Simba, you must remember who you are: the one true king.
Zazu: How lovely to see the future King and Queen!
Young Simba: What do you mean?
Zazu: One day, you will be betrothed.
Young Nala: Simba, you speak bird?
Zazu: Married… to each other.
Young Simba, Young Nala: Ewwww!
Rafiki: And so, I asked… who are you?
Simba: I am Simba, son of Mufasa.

Rafiki: [to Simba] Look closer. You see, he lives in you.
Young Simba: I’m going to be King of Pride Rock. I want to be brave like you.
Mufasa: I’m only brave when I have to be.
Mufasa: [from trailer] You must take your place… in the circle of life.
Pumbaa: [as he and Timon catch up with Simba and Nala, about to reclaim Pride Rock from Scar] We’re here!
Timon: Oh, everyone calm down. We’re here.

Scar: Of course you didn’t. No one ever means for these things to happen. But the king is dead… and if it weren’t for you… he’d still be alive. Your father had such hopes for you… gave you so many chances. And this is how you repay him.
Young Simba: I didn’t know. I didn’t know.
Scar: Oh, what will your mother think? A son who causes his father’s death. A boy who kills a king.
Young Simba: What am I gonna do?
Scar: Run. Run away, Simba. Run away and never return.

The prohibition of alcohol has led to a flourishing market of illegal liquors, dominated by organized crime. In Chicago, gangs control different parts of the city. As long as each gang limits its activities to its own district, there is peace between them. This balance of power is shattered, when the bodyguard Tony Camonte kills his boss Louis Costillo and joins another gang. Tony helps his new boss, Johnny Lovo, to expand his market share by going into districts controlled by other gangs, kill their leaders and force pubs to buy illegal beer from Lovo instead. The situation quickly develops into an all-out war between the gangs. Tony wants to be the boss of the whole city. He starts disobeying Lovo, takes over his mistress Poppy, and finally kills Lovo. Tony is now the king, but he has one weak point: his overprotection of his 18-year-old sister Cesca. He forbids her to go out and to flirt with men. When she breaks his commandments, he gets furious and forces her back home. In those situations, he loses his watchfulness, makes mistakes, and is vulnerable for attacks from other gangs and the police.

They met in the middle of the street at high noon and waited for each other to draw. But these things sneak up and shoot a guy in the back and then run away. Colorful.

A somewhat fictionalized account of the destruction of the village of Lidice in Czechoslovakia and the events leading up to it. In 1942, the Allies parachuted a Czech resistance fighter into the area. He quickly reunites with his former girlfriend and many of the villagers who knew him from before the war.
The Nazis are evil however and under the command of Reinhardt Heydrich rule the country with an iron fist, arbitrarily arresting innocents and charging them with fictitious crimes. When Heydrich is severely wounded in a roadside attack – he dies three days later – Henrich Himmler orders the destruction of Lidice. The men are herded into a churchyard where they sing defiantly as they are shot down, the village is set aflame and the women are sent to concentration camps. The town itself is leveled.

Hitler’s Madman (1943) best movie quotes
Karel Vavra: Patience, children. Patience. You mustn’t cry Jarmilla. None of us must cry. We must stand erect with our eyes to the sun and courage in our hearts.
Karel Vavra: Haven’t the Nazi’s shot you yet?
Nepomuk – the Hermit: Oh, I’m strictly a non-political character.
Nepomuk – the Hermit: You’d be a great prize for the Gestapo. They haven’t arrested anybody in three whole days!
German Arresting Soldier: Anton Bartonek, miner?
Maria Bartonek – Anton’s Wife: What is it, Anton?
German Arresting Soldier: You’re under arrest.
Bartonek: What for?
German Arresting Soldier: You’re accused of sabotage. Our Führer has good ears. He even knows what goes on underground.
Bartonek: He’d better get used to it!
German Arresting Soldier: What?
Bartonek: He doesn’t dream what’s in store for him. For all of you!
Karel Vavra: Beyond the borders of our country, in England and far off America, millions of men are leaving their work, in factories and on the farms, to fight those who made slaves of our people. They’ve sworn to destroy Nazism and liberate all the oppressed peoples of Europe. They ask you to help them.
Herman Bauer – Burgomaster: There must be law and order. German law. German order.
Maria Bartonek – Anton’s Wife: Please, Major Bauer. Who will feed my children? They’ll starve!
Herman Bauer – Burgomaster: Your husband should have thought of that before. German trains need coal! Our housewives needed to cook our modest meals!
Professor: Inevitably, pressure creates its own counter pressure. Its very existence fertilizes the seeds of its eventual annihilation.
Professor: My lecture today is on the phenomenon of pressure as conceived by the philosophers of the seventeenth century.
Reinhardt Heydrich: Very interesting, please proceed.
Professor: One might argue, that sufficient pressure would be able to destroy its own counter pressure. But, this is not necessarily true. Force and violence destroy only bodies, never the essence of the opposing force.
Reinhardt Heydrich: I presume you refer to metaphysical matters, not to political events?
Professor: Philosophy covers the entire field of life.
Reinhardt Heydrich: Advice, Professor of Philosophy, to confine himself to the realms of the abstract.
Reinhardt Heydrich: I’m absent-minded today. I forgot the ladies entirely. Are you afraid little lady?
Clara Janek: No. I’m not afraid.
Reinhardt Heydrich: All right. Now, surely, I’m not sending ladies to a Concentration Camp. They will go to the Russian front instead of the men. But, of course, dig trenches? No, lovely one! I would never think of that. A pretty girl like you could serve so much better entertaining our courageous German soldiers.
Clara Janek: No!
Jarmilla Hanka: Darling, if you have to go, please take me with you.
Karel Vavra: No, darling.
Jarmlila Hanka: I’m not afraid.
Karel Vavra: I’d be afraid of you. You’re safer here.
Jarmilla Hanka: I don’t want to be here or – or anywhere without you.
Karel Vavra: Maybe somewhere in the world, sweethearts still walk together hand-in-hand. But, not here, darling.
Herman Bauer – Burgomaster: Americans, huh! They are soft. Spoiled by democracy! We’ll mop them up like that!
Herman Bauer – Burgomaster: Read “Mein Kampf”. One day Hitler will take over America and put it in order.
Jan Hanka: You know, when I was young I thought things were simple. Right or wrong. Black or white. And as I grew older, I tried to understand the in-between. The shadows. I tried to see the other fellows’ point of view. I even imagined the Nazis might be human beings. But, this afternoon I knew I was right at first. Things are simple. They kill you. You kill them.
SS Colonel: Maybe Hess was right?
SS Colonel: Something has to be done immediately! There must be reprisals. Bloody reprisals. You must stamp out resistance at once!
SS Officer #1: What can we tell the press? They’re waiting for a statement. Shall I tell them that the assassin was a Czech?
SS Officer #2: A Czech? Preposterous! They wouldn’t dare!
SS Officer #3: It could have been a British parachuter.
SS Colonel: No! We’ll say it was a Jew. That’s always good!
SS Colonel: We must have the assassin before Himmler arrives. Do something! Take hostages! Hostages from every town and village. Hundreds of arrests are what I want. Shoot them by the hundreds! Shoot them down – every one of them!
SS Officer #1: But, what shall we tell the press?
SS Colonel: Shoot them – eh? Tell them, eh, the Reich Protector Heydrich had a slight accident. Just a few scratches. He’ll be back at his desk in the morning. That’s all gentlemen. Heil Hitler!

Heinrich Himmler: Dead men tell no tales.
Heinrich Himmler: They killed Heydrich because he was too weak! They won’t say Himmler is too weak.
Bartonek: [Last lines] Telling you not to eat or drink. one morsel of food, one swallow of drink, before you think, Before you think! What is best for your country. Keep your country free from the foe you hate. Catch him! Catch him! Do not wait!
