Aguirre, the Wrath of God Quotes

Klaus Kinski as Don Lope de Aguirre

  • (Klaus Kinski) "I am the wrath of God. Who else is with me?"
  • (Klaus Kinski) "I am the great traitor. There must be no other. Anyone who even thinks about deserting this mission will be cut up into 198 pieces.

If I, Aguirre, want the birds to drop dead from the trees -- then the birds will drop dead from the trees. I am the wrath of God. The earth I pass will see me and tremble. But whoever follows me and the river, will win untold riches. But whoever deserts --"

What great treachery that will be. Then all of New Spain will be ours, and we'll produce history as others produce plays. I, the Wrath of God, will marry my own daughter and with her I will found the purest dynasty the world has ever seen. Together, we shall rule this entire continent. We shall endure. I am the Wrath of God. Who else is with me?"
