Quotes

  • Francesca  

    Is there anything to fear in that room?

  • Prospero  

    The uninvited have much to fear.

  • Prospero  

    God's dead! Satan killed him!

  • Prospero  

    The Red Death is laying waste to the countryside!

  • Scarlatti  

    The Red Death? I beg you, Prospero, sanctuary!

  • Prospero  

    This is no church!

  • Prospero  

    That cross you wear around your neck; is it only a decoration, or are you a true Christian believer?

  • Francesca  

    Yes, I believe - truly.

  • Prospero  

    Then I want you to remove it at once! And never to wear it within this castle again! Do you know how a falcon is trained my dear? Her eyes are sown shut. Blinded temporarily she suffers the whims of her God patiently, until her will is submerged and she learns to serve - as your God taught and blinded you with crosses.

  • Francesca  

    You had me take off my cross because it offended....

  • Prospero  

    It offended no one. No - it simply appears to me to be discourteous to... to wear the symbol of a deity long dead.

  • Prospero  

    My ancestors tried to find it. And to open the door that separates us from our Creator.

  • Francesca  

    But you need no doors to find God. If you believe....

  • Prospero  

    Believe?! If you believe you are gullible. Can you look around this world and believe in the goodness of a god who rules it? Famine, Pestilence, War, Disease and Death! They rule this world.

  • Francesca  

    There is also love and life and hope.

  • Prospero  

    Very little hope I assure you. No. If a god of love and life ever did exist... he is long since dead. Someone... something, rules in his place.
