The Narrow Corner (film) Quotes

Douglas Fairbanks Jr. as Fred Blake

  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "I want life to be fair. I want life to be brave and honest. I'm not willing to stand by while the good are punished and the wicked go scott free. I want all men to be descent. Surely, that's not asking too much."
  • (Dudley Digges) "I don't know. It's asking more than life can give. Remember the words of Disraeli, Youth is a blunder, Maturity is struggle, and Old Age are a grit."
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "I'll wait."
  • (Arthur Hohl) "Why? This is Kim Ching's store. Good beer. I could do with a swallow. Blimy, if it ain't a white man?"
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "Who are you?"
  • (Patricia Ellis) "Where did you come from?"
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "You're beautiful."
  • (Patricia Ellis) "And you're English."
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "What if they should call?"
  • (Patricia Ellis) "Tell them, tell them I've gone to bed. It's quiet and dark in my room. And I can think."

  • (Dudley Digges) "My dear boy, men have been asking those questions since they stopped throwing coconuts at each other in the primeval forests and picked up a glimmer of intelligence."
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "Don't you believe in anything?"
  • (Dudley Digges) "Nothing except myself and my experience. The world consist of me, my thoughts and my feelings. Everything else is mere fancy."
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "Where do you want to go Doctor?"
  • (Dudley Digges) "Oh, any Dutch island where I can get a ship to take me on my way."
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "Alright. I suppose that will be better than being cooped up only with a belching idiot."
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "Where'd you learn to dance like that?"
  • (Patricia Ellis) "I followed you, that's all."
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "Why can't you leave me alone."
  • (Patricia Ellis) "I don't know. Something bigger than I am. We can't help ourselves any more than we can help the wind or the sea."
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "Resignation. The refuge of the beaten. Well, keep your resignation, I don't want it. I'm not willing to accept evil and ugliness and injustice. If life means that every thing I believe in is to be trampled on, then to the devil with life."

Ralph Bellamy as Eric Whittenson

  • (Ralph Bellamy) "I don't mind waiting. When you love anyone as I love Louise, a few months or a year, don't matter."
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "You love her like that?"
  • (Ralph Bellamy) "Yes. Of course, you've only just seen her. You don't realize how beautiful she really is. And there's something else in her, too. Like a wathe, not quite at home in the haunts of men. It's so beautiful that I almost regret that she can't always keep it."
  • (Dudley Digges) "Why shouldn't she?"
  • (Ralph Bellamy) "I feel she'll lose it when she becomes a wife and a mother. It's the soul of her that's so beautiful."
  • (Dudley Digges) "Don't be silly."
  • (Ralph Bellamy) "Why is it silly? It makes me ashamed that I won't got to her as pure as she'll come to me."
  • (Dudley Digges) "My dear boy, the most valuable thing I've learned from life is to regret nothing. Life is short. Nature is hostile and man is ridiculous."
  • (Ralph Bellamy) "Hello."
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "Who's that?"
  • (Patricia Ellis) "Oh, that's only Eric."
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "Eric? Oh, well, perhaps I ought to go."
  • (Patricia Ellis) "Why?"
  • (Douglas Fairbanks Jr.) "Well, a fellow doesn't like to see his girl talking to another fellow with no clothes on, does he."

Dudley Digges as Doctor Saunders

  • (Dudley Digges) "Youth. You're just a stranger in this world, yet. Presently you will learn to do without what you cannot get and make the most of what you can. A little common sense. A little tolerance. A little good humor. And you can make yourself very comfortable on this planet."

Reginald Owen as Mr. Frith

  • (Reginald Owen) "Never mind, Swan, you've only torn up a few dozen sheets of paper. They were merely an illusion. It would be foolish to give them a second thought. The reality of the poem remains. That is indestructible."
