QUOTE:
"They say Japan was made by a sword. They say the old gods dipped a coral blade into the ocean, and when they pulled it out four perfect drops fell back into the sea, and those drops became the islands of Japan. I say, Japan was made by a handful of brave men. Warriors, willing to give their lives for what seems to have become a forgotten word: honor."

"You want me to kill Jappos, I'll kill Jappos."
"I'm not asking you to kill anybody."
"You want me to kill THE ENEMIES of Jappos, I'll kill THE ENEMIES of Jappos... Rebs, or Sioux, or Cheyenne... For 500 bucks a month I'll kill whoever you want. But keep one thing in mind: I'd happily kill you for free."

"This is my son's village. We are deep in the mountains, and the winter is coming. You cannot escape."

“Many of our customs seem strange to you. And the same is true of yours. For example, not to introduce yourself is considered extremely rude, even among enemies."

”And who was your general?"
”Don't you have a rebellion to lead?"
"People in your country do not like conversation?"
"He was a lieutenant colonel. His name was Custer."
"I know this name. He killed many warriors."
"Oh, yes. Many warriors."
"So he was a good general."
"No. No, he wasn't a good general. He was arrogant and foolhardy. And he got massacred because he took a single battalion against two thousand angry Indians."
"Two thousand Indians? How many men for Custer?"
"Two hundred and eleven."
"I like this General Custer."
"He was a murderer who fell in love with his own legend. And his troopers died for it."
"I think this is a very good death."
"Well, maybe you can have one just like it someday."

"What else has she told you?"
"That you have nightmares."
"Every soldier has nightmares."
"Only one who is ashamed of what he has done."
"You have no idea what I have done."

"The perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one, and it would not be a wasted life."

"Spring, 1877. This marks the longest I've stayed in one place since I left the farm at 17. There is so much here I will never understand. I've never been a church going man, and what I've seen on the field of battle has led me to question God's purpose. But there is indeed something spiritual in this place. And though it may forever be obscure to me, I cannot but be aware of its power. I do know that it is here that I've known my first untroubled sleep in many years."

"You believe a man can change his destiny?"
"I think a man does what he can, until his destiny is revealed."
