Quotes 

  • Mrs. Clack : [Edward Walker tells the group he has sent Ivy to the towns to fetch medicines]  What have you done?

    Edward Walker : He is the victim of a crime.

    Mrs. Clack : We have agreed never to go back. Never

    Edward Walker : What was the purpose of our leaving? Don't forget, it was out of hope of something good and right.

    Robert Percy : You should not have made decisions without us!

    Edward Walker : I'm guilty, Robert! I made a decision of a heart, I cannot look into another's eyes and see the same look I see in August's without justification! It is too painful, I cannot bear it!

    Mrs. Clack : You have jeopardized everything we have made.

    Edward Walker : Who do you think will continue this place, this life? Do you plan to live forever? It is in them that our future lies, it is in Ivy and Lucius that this way of life will continue. Yes I have risked, I hope I am always able to risk everything for the just and right cause. If we did not make this decision, we could never again call ourselves innocent, and that in the end is what we have protected here, innocence! That I'm not ready to give up.

    August Nicholson : Let her go. If it ends, it ends. We can move towards hope, that's what's beautiful about this place. We cannot run from heartache. My brother was slain in the towns, the rest of my family died here. Heartache is a part of life, we know that now. Ivy is running toward hope, let her run. If this place is worthy, she'll be successful in her quest.

    Mrs. Clack : How could you have sent her. She is blind.

    Edward Walker : She is more capable than most in this village. And she is led by love. The world moves for love. It kneels before it in awe.

  • [Voice Over] 

    Mrs. Clack : My sister did not live passed her 23rd birthday. A group of men raped and killed her. They stuffed her in a dumpster three blocks from our apartment.

    August Nicholson : My brother worked in an emergency room downtown. A drug addict came in with a wound to his ribs. My brother tried to dress the wound. He pulled a gun from his jacket and he shot my brother through his left eye.

    Alice Hunt : My husband, Michael, left for the supermarket at a quarter past 9 in the morning. He was found with no money and no clothes in the East River three days later.

    Edward Walker : My father was shot by a business partner who then hanged himself in my father's closet. They had argued over money. I am a professor. I teach American History at the University of Pennsylvania. I have an idea that I would like to talk to you about.

  • August Nicholson : I often wondered if you and my son bonded because neither of you was fond of speaking. You're very kind. You must pardon my manners; I haven't slept in many nights.

  • [first lines] 

    August Nicholson : Who'll pinch me to wake me up? Who will laugh at me when I fall? Whose breath will I listen for so that I may sleep? Whose hand will I hold so that I may walk?

  • August Nicholson : We can move toward hope; that's what's beautiful about this place.

  • August Nicholson : We cannot run from heartache... Heartache is a part of life. We know that now.
