Important Quotes from The Thin Red Line You will be expected to analyze and incorporate quotes from the film as well as the novel in your essay when we are done with the book. We will have a discussion of these quotes beforehand. Colonel Gordon Tall : It's never necessary to tell me that you think I'm right. We'll just... assume it. Japanese Soldier : Are you righteous? Kind? Does your confidence lie in this? Are you loved by all? Know that I was, too. Do you imagine your suffering will be any less because you loved goodness and truth? First Sgt. Edward Welsh : There's not some other world out there where everything's gonna be okay. There's just this one, just this rock. Capt. James 'Bugger' Staros : I've lived with these men, sir, for two and a half years and I will not order them all to their deaths. First Sgt. Edward Welsh : I might be your best friend, and you don't even know it. First Sgt. Edward Welsh : In this world, a man, himself, is nothing. And there ain't no world but this one. Sergeant Storm : I look at that boy dyin', I don't feel nothin'. I don't care about nothin' anymore. First Sgt. Edward Welsh : Sounds like bliss. Private Witt : [ voice over ] We were a family. How'd it break up and come apart, so that now we're turned against each other? Each standing in the other's light. How'd we lose that good that was given us? Let it slip away. Scattered it, careless. What's keepin' us from reaching out, touching the glory? [ last lines ] Private Edward P. Train : [ voice over ] Where is it that we were together? Who were you that I lived with? The brother. The friend. Darkness, light. Strife and love. Are they the workings of one mind? The features of the same face? Oh, my soul. Let me be in you now. Look out through my eyes. Look out at the things you made. All things shining. Pvt. Jack Bell : [ voice over ] We. We together. One being. Flow together like water. Till I can't tell you from me. I drink you. Now. Now. Capt. James 'Bugger' Staros : [ praying ] You're my light. My guide.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
