Greta Garbo as Anna Karenina

  • (Greta Garbo) "Is the Princess Sorokina staying at your mother's?"
  • (Fredric March) "Oh, I don't know. I suppose she is."
  • (Greta Garbo) "Does your mother want you to marry the Princess Sorokina?"
  • (Fredric March) "Now, what makes you think that?"
  • (Greta Garbo) "It would be natural. The Princess Sorokina is so young and innocent. So like Kitty, isn't she?"
  • (Greta Garbo) "You know, Dolly, men like Stiva aren't really conscious of deception at all. They put their wives and homes in one compartment -- and these other women into another."
  • (Greta Garbo) "Today, all day, I felt so alone."
  • (Fredric March) "We must be careful. We mustn't hurt each other. That's why we hurt each other; because, we love."
  • (Greta Garbo) "Yes. Yes, that's why."
  • (Greta Garbo) "I suggest that you change into more repentant gowns. You look much too gay."

  • (Greta Garbo) "I feel so guilty, so terribly guilty."
  • (Greta Garbo) "I'm thinking of what you told me this afternoon, "Doomed to bliss and despair." It's true. I know now that there's no escape for me. I love you, Alexei, I love you."
  • (Greta Garbo) "You say this knowing this I cannot do. There is no life for me without my child. To leave him would be infamous and base. I couldn't. And you know I couldn't."
  • (Basil Rathbone) "Very well. I can assume, then, that you will never again jeopardize my honor."
  • (Greta Garbo) "Oh, your honor. Your selfishness. Your hypocrisy. Your egotism. You've never considered me as a human being. Your social position and -- your reputation. These must be kept up at what cost to those who are around you? At what cost?"
  • (Basil Rathbone) "It's time for my appointment at the ministry."
  • (Greta Garbo) "I feel pain. I feel tears."
  • (Fredric March) "Why?"
  • (Greta Garbo) "Because I'm so happy. Not to think, only to live, only to feel."
  • (Greta Garbo) "You know, darling, men like Stiva aren't really conscience of deception at all. They put their wives and homes in one compartment and these other women in another. It's strange; but, I know it to be true."

  • (Fredric March) "What truth?"
  • (Greta Garbo) "That one day I shall find myself -- ALONE."

Reginald Denny as Yashvin

  • (Colonel) "Very ill advised."
  • (Reginald Denny) "He has courage in the field, sir, and in society too."

  • (Greta Garbo) "You miss Russia. You miss home."
  • (Fredric March) "Our meetings are so brief, the dance also."
  • (Greta Garbo) "But our reunions are so frequent."

  • (Greta Garbo) "Yes."

  • (Fredric March) "Please, Anna, be brave. Don't --"
  • (Greta Garbo) "But, I am not brave."
  • (Fredric March) "Won't you relent? Won't you dance the mazurka with me?"

Phoebe Foster as Dolly

  • (Phoebe Foster) "Sometimes I think, I compare my life to yours. You travel, you go to Italy, you do what you like. You're loved. While I, no ecstasy. No glamour. All the things you have."
  • (Phoebe Foster) "Whatever way one lives, there's a penalty, I suppose."

Reginald Owen as Stiva

  • (Reginald Owen) "Ten years. She's the mother of my three children."

  • (Basil Rathbone) "For some time, I have known that in uniting my life to yours, I have made a mistake. But this I must bear for the sake of my public duty -- and for the sake of my child. I believe in marriage as a sacrament. I could not consider myself justified in breaking the ties by which we are bound by a higher power. The family cannot be broken up by a -- whim or a caprice or even by the -- by the sin of one of the partners in the marriage. Our life must go on as it has done in the past."
  • (Greta Garbo) "But it can't go on."
  • (Basil Rathbone) "It must. I have stated these views in public, and I will not violate them in private."
  • (Greta Garbo) "Then you will not give me a divorce?"
  • (Basil Rathbone) "Never. Why should I? To permit you to legalize a sin? To justify your conduct and his? Never."
  • (Basil Rathbone) "I told my son you were dead. Why do you make me out a tyrant who intervenes between him and you? It's easy for you to play the martyr -- and destroy the new life I'm trying to build up for my son and for myself as you destroyed the old. And I shall not permit it."

Maureen O'Sullivan as Kitty

  • (Maureen O'Sullivan) "I wish this dance would end."
  • (Maureen O'Sullivan) "You're strange."
