The Custodian (1993)
Det. Sgt. James Quinlan: [to a thug he has pinned against the wall] You of course know what Seneca said about fine conduct. In letters to Vasilius he said that fine conduct is always spontaneous.
Det. Sgt. James Quinlan: And had you known the quote, you'd have said to him, as Burke said when questioned on the French Revolution in 1790, "Patience will achieve more than force."
Reynolds: Who the fuck are you?
Det. Sgt. James Quinlan: I'm a two-bit philosopher. That's who I am.
