The Egyptian (film) Quotes

Bella Darvi as Nefer

  • (Bella Darvi) "No. I brought you here only to show you the gate in my garden wall. Later, when all of my guests have gone -- I will be here by my lotus pool."
  • (Edmund Purdom) "Why do you tell me this?"

  • (Edmund Purdom) "What has this to do with you and me?"

  • (Victor Mature) "That's easy, she's a Babylonian, have her banished or killed."
  • (Gene Tierney) "He'd follow her into exile or mourn over her grave the rest of his life. No. He must be made to see that she's worthless."

  • (Gene Tierney) "A child's game. I see one promotion."
  • (Victor Mature) "Why not? A real soldier here is like a falcon among sparrows."

Edmund Purdom as Sinuhe

  • (Edmund Purdom) "I, Sinuhe the Egyptian, write this. In my place of exile on the shores of the Red Sea. There is no more desolate spot on earth. Soon the jackals and the vultures will make a poor meal of what is left of me. No monument will mark my resting place. I will leave only this, the story of my life. I have lived fully and deeply. I have tasted passion, crime and even murder. It is for you to judge me. You must weigh the good against the evil, the passion against the tenderness, the crime against the charity, the pleasure against the pain. I began life as I am ending it, alone. I rode alone on the bosom of the Nile in a boat of reeds dawbed with pitch and tied with fowler's knots. Thus the city of Thebes was accustomed to dispose of its unwanted children. I grew up on the waterfront of the city in the house of my foster parents who had saved me from the river. My foster father lived there by choice because he was also, by choice, physician to the poor of the city. From the rich he could have commanded princely fees, for he alone, in Thebes, was master of the ancient art of opening skulls. From the beginning I kept to myself. I used to wander alone on the banks of the Nile. Until the day came when I was ready to enter the School of Life. In the School of Life were trained the chosen young men of Egypt. The future scientists, philosophers, statesmen and generals. All the learning of Egypt lay in the keeping of the gods. For ten years I served them in the school that I might earn the right to call myself a physician. I learned to bend my body to them, but that was all. My mind still asked a question. Why?"
  • (Edmund Purdom) "I have spent my life in seeking knowledge. This is what I know. I have written this for you my son, wherever you are and for your children and your children's children. It's a poor legacy. But it's all I have."
