Quotes from

Gerald Crich: Rupert, what is it you really want?
Rupert Birkin: I want to sit with my beloved in a field, with daisies growing all around us.

Rupert Birkin: I do believe in a permanent union between a man and a woman. Chopping about is merely an exhaustive process. But a permanent relationship between a man and a woman isn't the last word. lt certainly isn't.
Gerald Crich: Quite.
Rupert Birkin: We have to take down this love-and-marriage ideal from its pedestal. We want something broader. I believe in the additional perfect relationship, between man and man. Additional to marriage.
Gerald Crich: I don't see how they can be the same.
Rupert Birkin: No, not the same, but equally important... equally creative, equally sacred, if you like.
Gerald Crich: I know you believe something like that. Only, I can't feel it, do you see?

Ursula Brangwen: And all men are either lovers or husbands. Why not both?
Rupert Birkin: No. One excludes the other.
