Whistle Down the Wind

Whistle Down the Wind

Kathy Bostock: [to Blake through barn window] Please, you must hurry! You must! Will we see you again? Will we see you?
The Man: [after a pause] You bet!
Kathy Bostock: What did you say? I didn't hear.
The Man: [With resignation] I said, 'Yeah.' You'll hear about me again.
Kathy Bostock: [Desparately] Do you promise? Promise?
Superintendent Teesdale: [to Kathy] Come on, love. Out of it.
The Man: [after a pause] Yeah, I promise.

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

Ursula Brangwen: Say you love me. Say "My love" to me.
Rupert Birkin: I love you right enough. I just want it to be something else.
Ursula Brangwen: Why? Why isn't it enough?
Rupert Birkin: Because we can go one better.
Ursula Brangwen: We can't. We can only say we love each other. Say "my love" to me. Say it.
Rupert Birkin: Yes, my love. Let love be enough, then. I love you, then. I'm bored by the rest.

Hermione Roddice: Dreadful. All this strife and dissension. If we could only realise that... in the spirit, we are all one, all equal in the spirit. All brothers there. The rest wouldn't matter. There'd be no more of this carping, envy... all this struggle for power, which destroys... only destroys.
Rupert Birkin: It's just the opposite, Hermione, just the contrary. The minute you begin to compare, one man becomes far better than another. All the inequality in the world that you can imagine is there by nature. I want every man to have his fair share of the world's goods... so I can be rid of his importunity, so that I can say to him: 'Now you've got what you want, your fair share of the world's gear. Now, you mind yourself, and don't obstruct me.'
