Two conversations from Lawrence of Arabia–
Lawrence: There may be honor among thieves, but there’s none in politicians.
Dryden: And let’s have no displays of indignation. You may not have known, but you certainly had suspicions. If we’ve told lies, you’ve told half-lies. And a man who tells lies, like me, merely hides the truth, but a man who tells half-lies has forgotten where he put it.
An Arab: Gasim’s time is come, Lawrence. It is written.
Lawrence: Nothing is written!
Lawrence: Nothing is written.
Ali: Truly, for some men nothing is written unless they write it.
