Edmund Purdom Quotes:

Nefer: Wait. Before you touch me I must give you a warning.
Sinuhe: Warning?
Nefer: There is a reason the Goddess of Love takes the form of a cat.
Sinuhe: When I look at you I care nothing for cats or gods.
Nefer: Look Sinuhe. A cat's paws are soft. But they hide claws. A cat takes pleasure in tormenting its victim. Not until the creature is nearly dead does it show pity... and put an end to it.
Sinuhe: What has this to do with you and me?
Nefer: You've had less experience, and I must be what I am. Leave now and do not return through the gate in my wall, or you may regret it all your life.
Sinuhe: I don't even know your name.
Nefer: In their foolishness, men gave me the name which means, beautiful.
Sinuhe: Nefer. Nefer. Nefer.

The Viceroy: ...if the young man chooses to be difficult, there are methods other than the whip to loosen his tongue.

Micah: [Referring to Ruth] If she did come, I would tell her that what cannot be forgotten can sometimes be forgiven.
