Leo Vincey Quotes in She (1965)
Leo Vincey Quotes:
Maj. Horace Holly: I suppose there's a time in everyone's life when the idea of immortality seems very desirable. But now at my age I'd have to give it a great deal of thought.
Leo Vincey: What's age got to do with it? You'd stay as you are.
Maj. Horace Holly: That's not what I meant, Leo. What one would accept eagerly at your age doesn't necessarily have the same appeal at mine. It's the age of the mind that's important, not the body. You see, you're young. Still on the threshold of life. The joy of living is not to be denied, but to know that it'll be there for all time, without change. Life at a standstill. It's not quite the same thing.
Maj. Horace Holly: [about the flame] It'll come back some day.
Leo Vincey: When, Holly, when?
Maj. Horace Holly: That I can't tell you, Leo. But you wanted immortality.
Leo Vincey: When it comes back, it will find me waiting.
Leo Vincey: Was that barbaric execution necessary?
Ayesha: It was necessary!
Maj. Horace Holly: In God's name, why?
Ayesha: As a demonstration of my absolute power! How else could I hold my soldiers and these pathetic creatures as my subjects? How else but by instilling fear and terror into their very souls.
Maj. Horace Holly: But nothing is gained by fear and terror.
Ayesha: Is your world so much better? Your world where men kill each other in their millions in the name of freedom? Your world that has not long to live. A few decades only before it destroys itself. Then, what will be left?
