Leo Vincey:
Was that barbaric execution necessary?



Ayesha:
It was necessary!



Maj. Horace Holly:
In God's name, why?



Ayesha:
As a demonstration of my absolute power! How else could I hold my soldiers and these pathetic creatures as my subjects? How else but by instilling fear and terror into their very souls.



Maj. Horace Holly:
But nothing is gained by fear and terror.



Ayesha:
Is your world so much better? Your world where men kill each other in their millions in the name of freedom? Your world that has not long to live. A few decades only before it destroys itself. Then, what will be left?

Maj. Horace Holly:
I suppose there's a time in everyone's life when the idea of immortality seems very desirable. But now at my age I'd have to give it a great deal of thought.



Leo Vincey:
What's age got to do with it? You'd stay as you are.



Maj. Horace Holly:
That's not what I meant, Leo. What one would except eagerly at your age doesn't necessarily have the same appeal at mine. It's the age of the mind that's important, not the body. You see, you're young. Still on the freshhold of life. The joy of living is not to be denied, but to know that it'll be there for all time, without change. Life at a standstill. It's not quite the same thing.

Maj. Horace Holly:
All my life I've dreamed of finding a city such as this. But now that I have, I'd like to see it destroyed and all it stands for.

Ayesha:
You tremble, Billali?



Billali:
The man who fears your wrath and does not tremble, is a fool, your queen. The man who does not fear your wrath and yet does not tremble in your presence, is not a man.
