  • Quotes

    • Travis: If we kill a mouse here, all the future family of that mouse is killed, right? And all the families of all the families. You step on a mouse, you annihilate one, a thousand, a million possible mice.
      Eckles: Well?
      Travis: Well... For want of ten mice, a fox dies. For want of a fox, a lion starves. For want of a lion, infinite billions of life forms cease to exist. A caveman goes hunting, but you, friend, have stepped on all his lions. The caveman starves. From his loins might have sprung ten sons. From these a hundred. Kill this one man, you destroy a race of people, an entire history of life. Europe remains forever a dark forest. Step on a mouse, you leave your print like a grand canyon across eternity. So stay on the path!
