  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Mrs. Dame: (Referring to the Bifrost Alien) I expected it to kill me, but it looked into my eyes, and I heard myself say, "Can you help?" And it said, "Can I not?"

    • Bifrost Alien: (Speaking to Judith Bellero) I cannot speak your language. I analyze your eyes. In all the universes, in all the unities beyond the universes, all who have eyes, have eyes that speak, and all speak the same language.

    • Judith Bellero: (Speaking of the Bifrost Alien) Someone spoke of the trembling way: a bridge between earth and heaven. When I grew up, I found it in the mythology book. Scandinavians call it the "Bifrost." I thought of this as our "Bifrost." A trembling way to what for me would be heaven--power, far-flung holdings, undiminishable authority.

    • Richard Bellero, Sr.: (Arguing with Judith Bellero) I spend every hour, every dollar, and every dream developing men and means that are devoted to the prevention of war. That says how much I hate war! And yet I am not sickened or enraged, even by war, as I am by a single soul like yours. Your ambition is singularly the most active form of violence I have ever encountered!

    • Bifrost Alien: (Speaking to Richard Bellero, Jr.) I already see another of your weapons--distrust.

    • Control Voice: (closing narration) When this passion called aspiration becomes lust, then aspiration degenerates becomes vulgar ambition by which sin the angels fell.

    • Control Voice: (opening narration) There is a passion in the human heart which is called aspiration. It flares with a noble flame and by its light man has traveled from the caves of darkness to the darkness of outer space. But, when this passion becomes lust when its flame is fanned by greed and private hunger, then aspiration becomes ambition by which sin the angels fell.
