Il re Yotar Quotes in The Giant of Metropolis (1961)
Il re Yotar Quotes:
Scientist: Like all successes of science that have been achieved before, this also is due to the pitiful sacrifice of one of the humans we have kept under observation. He was 100 years old.
Il re Yotar: What does the sacrifice of a man matter when it serves to further the progress of science? Nothing.
Il re Yotar: Can there be a blood stronger than our own? Perhaps we are confronting an entirely new force in the world surrounding us.
Il re Yotar: Stranger! At last you shall learn there is a strength mightier than yours, a living creature that will crush you and who will make you see that you are nothing.
Il re Yotar: Where is the stranger? Answer me, you traitor!
Queen Texen: He's everywhere around you. And to you he's invisible. But when you see him face to face, it will be your final day.
Obro: Yotar. Yotar! You are mad. You are mad. You are speaking to a shadow. You wanted to make all of time come to a halt, but you are nothing! Nothing! And yet you want to condemn your whole people to destruction.
Il re Yotar: No! Metropolis will never be destroyed, I tell you.
Obro: You know that it's the truth. And you own madness is what prevents you from accepting it, so I have to kill you. Only with your death can the people recover their liberty and safety.
Il re Yotar: Guards!
Obro: Your guards can't help you now. You're alone now.
Il re Yotar: Stranger, when you came to Metropolis, you spoke of destruction only. Why? You've predicted my downfall and the loss of my continent as well. You think you can make me afraid by acting as a messenger of doom?
Obro: No, Yotar. A messenger of hope. There is still time enough to save Metropolis, but you are blinded by ambition and cruelty.
