Hugh Glass[edit]

  • [to Hawk] As long as you can still grab a breath, you fight. You breathe... keep breathing.
  • I ain't afraid to die anymore. I'd done it already.
  • Revenge is in God's hands not mine.

John Fitzgerald[edit]

  • God giveth, God taketh away.
  • You came all this way just for your revenge, huh? Did you enjoy it, Glass?... 'Cause there ain't nothin' gon' bring your boy back.


  • Hikuc: My heart bleeds. But revenge is in the creator's hands.
  • Hugh Glass' Wife: As long as you can still grab a breath, you fight. You breathe. Keep breathing. When there is a storm. And you stand in front of a tree. If you look at its branches, you swear it will fall. But if you watch the trunk, you will see its stability.


Boone: Been so long eating this damn beaver meat, I'm actually starting to miss my wife's cooking.
Stubby Bill: Shit, I'm actually startin' to miss your wife.
Boone: Would you shut the hell

John Fitzgerald: You're forgetting your place, boy.
Hugh Glass: As far as I can tell, my place is right here on the smart end of this rifle.

Hugh Glass: I told you to be invisible, son!
Hawk: At least he...
Hugh Glass: If you want to survive, keep your mouth shut!
Hawk: At least he heard me.
Hugh Glass: They don't hear your voice! They just see the color of your face. You understand? You understand?
Hawk: Yes.

Jones: Those pelts are stolen.
Elk Dog: You all have stolen everything from us. Everything! The land. The animals.

Andrew Henry: What happened?
John Fitzgerald: We did what we had to do. He was buried right.

Hugh Glass: All I had was my boy... but he took him from me, you understand? He's afraid. He knows how far I came for him. Same as that elk, when they get afraid they run deep in to the woods. I got him trapped. He just, he doesn't know it yet.
Andrew Henry: How can you be so sure?
Hugh Glass: 'Cause he's got everything to lose.

Andrew Henry: Is it true you killed an officer?
Hugh Glass: I just killed a man who was trying to kill my son.

John Fitzgerald: We all know what happened out there.
Hugh Glass: You killed my boy.
John Fitzgerald: Or maybe you shoulda raised a man... instead of some girly little bitch.
