Jean Peters Quotes:

Nalinle: My father wronged you. Many men have wronged you. But now you make yourself worse than they are. Now there is nothing in you but hate. You fight only yourself. You kill only for yourself. You are like a dying wolf biting at its own wounds.

Massai: Every white man, every Indian, is my enemy. I cannot kill them all and someday they will kill me.
Nalinle: Then we will live until someday.
