Maximilian Schell Quotes:

Stanislaus Pilgrin: [voicing his thoughts] The simple closing of a door has brought me to the guillotine.


Capt. Hardenberg: The German army is invincible because it is an army that obeys orders. Any order. No matter how distasteful. It has no sentimentalists, no moralists, no individualists. You will have no future in it if you don't understand that. You may have no future at all if you oppose it. I trouble to tell you this because you have a fine record. You will be a creative soldier, once you get all this "thinking" knocked out of you.


Bishop: It always troubled me, the Trinity. You know, Giuseppe, I could never really understand it. Does it trouble you?
Bishop: No. There are three persons in one God. Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Three in one.
Bishop: Yes, but that's for a child. But a small comfort to a Bishop. You see, I'm a peasant, Giuseppe, just like you. A practical man, so I understand only what I feel, and what I see.
Giuseppe: Look, look. One blanket and one, two, three folds. Three folds in one blanket - three persons in one God, like the Trinity.
