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:
Will you tell me something? This women Ayesha, why do you all do her bidding without question?



Billali:
It has always been so.



Maj. Horace Holly:
Yes, but why? She's only a woman and alone. You are men and many.



Billali:
And like all men we are born, live a span and we die. But she has been here forever. She is like the mountains, like the desert. Changeless, ageless, deathless.



Maj. Horace Holly:
That I cannot believe. In your fear you have accepted the impossible as truth. No-one lives forever. And no one was born to be the vassel of another. You know this too, I've seen it in your eyes. Your body does her bidding but your spirit cries out to be free. Is that not true?



Billali:
Each one of us has his own destiny to fulfil.



Maj. Horace Holly:
And yours, I suppose, is to fill the next alcove. I can't believe you're such a fool, Bellali.



Billali:
No, Mr Holly. I am not such a fool.

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:
[about Ustane] We must be rid of her!



Billali:
I speak again, whatever risk to myself. To be rid of her would be simple, but unwise. If you are to prevail, It is the fair one who must banish her, who must turn against her. He is a man of soul and conscience. These you must destroy.
