From 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992)
Antonio de Marchena: [Reading from a letter] "And therefore nothing could justify the participation of your Majesties on a venture that relies on such feeble assumptions and which any man of knowledge would take to be impractical, if not impossible.
Columbus: They didn't listen. They don't want to listen.
Antonio de Marchena: You mustn't give way to despair. You must wait.
Columbus: Wait? I've waited seven years already! How much longer do you want me to wait?
Antonio de Marchena: If God intends you to go, you will go.
