Memorable Quotations:

  • "Young men make wars and the virtues of war are the virtues of young men: courage and hope for the future. Then old men make the peace, and the vices of peace are the vices of old men: mistrust and caution." --Prince Feisal.
  • "With Major Lawrence, mercy is a passion. With me, it is merely good manners. You may judge which motive is the most reliable." --Prince Feisal.
  • " I can not fiddle but I can make a great state of a small city." --Lawrence.
  • "So long as the Arabs fight tribe against tribe, so long will they be a little people." --Lawrence.
  • "A man who tells lies, like me, merely hides the truth. But a man who tells half-lies has forgotten where he put it." --Dryden.
  • "Lawrence, only two kinds of creatures get fun of the desert--Bedouins and Gods, and you're neither. Take it from me: for ordinary men, it's a burning fiery furnace." --Dryden.
           "No, Dryden, it's going to be fun." --Lawrence.
           "It is recognized that you have a funny sense of fun." --Dryden.
