The Chief: Who are you I say?
|THINGS TO COME
John Cabal: The Law... Law and Sanity.
The Chief: I am the Law here.
John Cabal: I said Law and Sanity.
John Cabal: We don't approve of sovereign independent states.
The Chief: You don't approve?
John Cabal: We mean to stop them.
The Chief: That's war!
Wings Over The World soldier: Now we've got the chance to try the new gas of peace on somebody.
Oswald Cabal: The best of life, Passworthy, lies nearest to the edge of death.
Oswald Cabal: Our fathers and our fathers' fathers cleaned up the old order of things because it killed children. It killed those who aren't prepared to death. Because it tormented people in vain. Because it outraged human pride and dignity. Because it was an ugly spectacle of waste.
Oswald Cabal: There's nothing wrong in suffering IF you suffer for a purpose.
Oswald Cabal: Our revolution didn't abolish danger or death: it simply made danger and death worthwhile.
Oswald Cabal: What they've done is magnificent!
Raymond Passworthy: Will they come back?
Oswald Cabal: Yes! And go again and again. Until a landing is made and the moon is conquered. This is only a beginning.
Raymond Passworthy: What if they don't come back, my son and your daughter, what of that Cabal?
Oswald Cabal: Then presently others will go.
Raymond Passworthy: Oh God, is there ever going to be an age of happiness? Is there never to be any rest?
Oswald Cabal: Rest is enough for the individual. Too much and too soon and we call it death. But for Man no rest and no ending. He must go on, conquest beyond conquest. First this little planet with its wings and waves. And then all the laws of mind and matter that restrain us. Then the planets about it. And at last, out to cross the immenseness and to the stars. And when he has conquered all the distant space and all the mysteries of time, still he will be beginning.
Oswald Cabal: It is this or that. All the universe or nothing. Which shall it be Passworthy, which shall it be?
