Quotes

Homer Smith: Gringo? I don't know if that's a step up or a step down from some other things I've been called.

Homer Smith: I'm gonna' build me a chapel.

Homer Smith: [one of the nuns has just given Homer his breakfast; one fried egg and a half cup of milk] That's a Catholic breakfast, ain't it?

Mr. Ashton: Say, where'd you get all the material?

Juan: The people give them, Senor.

Mr. Ashton: What for?

Juan: A man, he gives wood... bricks. In time, what does he get? A chapel... a place where his children can receive the sacraments. To these men, for their children to have faith, it is important.

Mr. Ashton: Is that why you're here?

Juan: To me, it is insurance. To me, life is here on this earth. I cannot see further, so I cannot believe further. But, if they are right about the hereafter, I have paid my insurance, Senor.
