Though I have all faith so that I could remove mountains and have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor and though I give my body to be burned and have not love, it profiteth me nothing. Love suffereth and love is kind. Love envieth not. Love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child. But when I became a man, I put away childish things. But now abideth faith, hope, love... these three. But the greatest of these is love.
Hontar: We must work in the world, your eminence. The world is thus.
Altamirano: No, Señor Hontar. Thus have we made the world... thus have I made it.
Cabeza: I cannot and will not accept a challenge from a priest. His cloth protects him.
Mendoza: My cloth protects *you*!
Altamirano: [spoiler] So, your Holiness. Now your priests are dead, and I am left alive. But in truth it is who am dead, and they who live. For as always, your Holiness. The spirit of the dead will survive in the memory of the living.
Altamirano: Tell them they must leave the missions. They must submit to the will of God.
Gabriel: They say it was the will of God that they came out of the jungle and built the mission. They don't understand why God has changed his mind.
Mendoza: Are you laughing at me?
Gabriel: I am laughing because what I see is laughable. I see a coward, a man running from the world.
Mendoza: For me these is no redemption, no penance great enough.
Gabriel: There is. But do you dare to try it?
Mendoza: Do you dare to see it fail?
[Mendoza is repeatedly dragging a load of armor up a cliff as penance for killing his brother]
Fielding: How long must he carry that stupid thing?
Gabriel: God knows.
Gabriel: So you're hunting above the falls now, Captain Mendoza?
Gabriel: We're building a mission here. We're going to make Christians of these people!
