Rasputin: We had a man in Pokrovskoe. He didn't wash or work. He lied, stole, cheated, drank, chased all the women. He was a sinner. Why, out of all men, did the Virgin come to him?

[reading the dead Rasputin's will]
Tsarina Alexandra: [in tears] "I feel that I shall leave life before January the first. If any of your relatives have brought my death, then none of your family, none of your children, or relatives, will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. Brother will kill brother and there will be no nobles left in the country."
Tsarina Alexandra: At times I rather like it. Mending clothes, teaching classes, and quiet afternoons. I doze and daydream. I think about my life. I don't know what I did wrong. I'd feel better if I did.
Tsarina Alexandra: Think of it... Russian princesses doing an English play in French for an audience of Polish nobles... I hope somebody understands it.
Tsarina Alexandra: [in a letter to Nicholas] My very own darling. Remember last night when we were together? I yearn for your caresses, I can never have enough of them. I kiss you, caress you, love you, long for you, can't sleep without you, bless you. Sunny.
Tsarina Alexandra: [convincing him to become commander in chief of the armies] Oh Nicky. This is the beginning of the glory of your reign. Our friend told me so. It will be the greatest page in Russian history, the story of these weeks and days. And while your gone, don't worry over what you've left behind. I'm here. Lean on me; use me. I'm not wise or strong, but God will show me what to do.
Tsarina Alexandra: [about Alexandra spending all day with Alexei] My place is where I'm needed most.
