  • Billy Budd  

    Farewell to the Rights of Man!

  • Lieutenant Seymour  

    Wyatt, we do not deal with justice here, but with the law.

  • Lieutenant Wyatt  

    Was not the one conceived to serve the other?

  • Billy Budd  

    It's wrong to flog a man. It's against his being a man.

  • Master At Arms Claggert  

    The sea is calm you said. Peaceful. Calm above, but below a world of gliding monsters preying on their fellows. Murderers, all of them. Only the strongest teeth survive. And who's to tell me it's any different here on board, or yonder on dry land?"

  • Lieutenant Seymour  

    Aye sir, that is your right.

  • Captain Vere  

    It's no right. Which one of us here have rights? It's my duty and I must perform it.
