Thin Red Line, The (1998)
Lt. Col. Gordon Tall: The only time you should start worrying about a soldier is when they stop bitchin'.
Sgt. Welsh: If I should never find you in this life, let me feel the lack. One glance from your eyes, and my life will be yours.
Private Witt: Do you ever feel lonely? First Sgt. Edward Welsh: Only when I'm around people.
Pvt. Jack Bell: Love. Where does it come from? Who lit this flame in us? No war can put it out, conquer it. I was a prisoner. You set me free.
Lt. Col. Gordon Tall: It's never necessary to tell me that you think I'm right. We'll just... assume it.
Japanese Soldier: Are you righteous? Kind? Does your confidence lie in this? Are you loved by all? Know that I was, too. Do you imagine your suffering will be any less because you loved goodness and truth?
First Sgt. Edward Welsh: There's not some other world out there where everything's gonna be okay. There's just this one, just this rock.
Capt. James 'Bugger' Staros: I've lived with these men, sir, for two and a half years and I will not order them all to their deaths.
First Sgt. Edward Welsh: I might be your best friend, and you don't even know it.
First Sgt. Edward Welsh: In this world, a man, himself, is nothing. And there ain't no world but this one.
Private Witt: I seen another world. Sometimes I think it was just my imagination.
Private Witt: Maybe all men got one big soul everybody's a part of, all faces are the same man.
First Sgt. Edward Welsh: What difference do you think you can make, one man in all this madness?
Private Witt: I can take anything you dish out. I am twice the man you are.
First Sgt. Edward Welsh: Property. The whole fucking thing's about property.
Colonel Gordon Tall: How many men is it worth? How many lives? One? Two? Twenty? Lives will be lost in your company, Captain. If you don't have the stomach for it, now is the time to let me know.
Colonel Gordon Tall: Look at this jungle. Look at those vines, the way they twine around, swallowing everything. Nature's cruel, Staros.
Private Train: [narrating] What is this great evil? How did it steal into the world? From what seed, what root did it spring? Who's doing this? Who's killing us? Robbing us of light and life. Mocking us with the sight of what we might have known.
Private Witt: [narrating] Oh my soul, let me be in you now. Look out through my eyes, look out at the things you've made. All things shining.
Private Jack Bell: My dear wife, you get something twisted out of your insides by all this blood, filth, and noise. I want to stay changeless for you. I want to come back to you the man I was before.
