The Magnificent Ambersons (film) Quotes

Richard Bennett as Maj. Amberson

  • (Richard Bennett) "So your devilish machines are going to ruin all your old friend, eh Gene? Do you really think they're going to change the face of the land?"
  • (Joseph Cotten) "They're already doing it major and it can't be stopped. Automobiles --"
  • (Tim Holt) "Automobiles are a useless nuisance."
  • (Tim Holt) "What did you say George?"
  • (Tim Holt) "I said automobiles are a useless nuisance. Never amount to anything but a nuisance and they had no business to be invented."
  • (Ray Collins) "Of course you forget that Mr. Morgan makes them, also did his share in inventing them. If you weren't so thoughtless, he might think you were rather offensive."
  • (Joseph Cotten) "I'm not sure George is wrong about automobiles. With all their speed forward they may be a step backward in civilization. May be that they won't add to the beauty of the world or the life of the men's souls, I'm not sure. But automobiles have come and almost all outwards things will be different because of what they bring. They're going to alter war and they're going to alter peace. And I think men's minds are going to be changed in subtle ways because of automobiles. And it may be that George is right. May be that in ten to twenty years from now that if we can see the inward change in men by that time, I shouldn't be able to defend the gasoline engine but agree with George; that automobiles had no business to be invented."
