Quotes from

[last lines]
Tom Jeffords: His words meant very little to me then, but as time passed, I came to know that the death of Sonseeahray had put a seal upon the peace. And from that day on wherever I went - in the cities, among the Apaches, in the mountains - I always remembered my wife was with me.

[to Tom Jeffords]
Cochise: As I bear the murder of my people, so you will bear the murder of your wife.
