Nonnie Parker: [When he refuses to let her hunt poachers with Colonel Theron] Dad, wasn't it you who told me people need to stand up for what they believe in, or nothing's ever gonna change.

Paul Parker: People need to sit down and talk, otherwise *people* won't change.

Nonnie Parker: I've seen a lot of sitting and talking around here, not much changing. If you were George Washington's father, we'd still be British colonists.

Col. Mopani Theron: [cutting him off] Stays alive a day longer.

Harry Winslow: She hates me.

Xhabbo: Woman's like a tree. Harry must not judge tree by flowers, but by fruit.

Harry Winslow: Maybe Bushmen cross deserts. Maybe they even make it. But we're gonna die here. All the wind will do for us is bury us in the sand.
