Quotes

Bauer: What brings you to these whereabouts?
Mönch: I'm delivering an important letter for my abbot.
Bauer: I recall the nice humid smell of your walls. I happened to be in monastic school as well. One day a priest came and took me there. Years later I found out why. I'm the result of an affair with a bishop. But I didn't stay for long. It is not my fate to renounce the world.
Mönch: We put ourselves in service of God. Pray and work.
Bauer: [sarcastic] Yes. And you get drunk on wine there as well.
