Requiem for Methuselah Quotes

  • (Flint) "in that region of Earth later called Mesopotamia, in the year 3834 B.C., as the millennia are reckoned. I was Akharin, a soldier, a bully and a fool. I fell in battle, pierced to the heart; and did not die."

  • (McCoy) "Saurian brandy, one hundred years old. Jim?"
  • (Capt. Kirk) "Please."
