Quotes from Joseph Fiennes movies and TV shows

Commisar Danilov: Do you know how to shoot?
Vassili Zaitsev: A little.

Vassili Zaitsev: He shot him on the run. It was an impossible shot.
Commisar Danilov: Vassili.
Vassili Zaitsev: You've promised people a victory I can't deliver. I don't stand a chance against this man.

Commisar Danilov: Where have you been? We've been looking all over for you.
Vassili Zaitsev: Oh, did you hear? I was dead. At least, Noble Sniper Zeitsev, Vassili was dead.

Commisar Danilov: I've been such a fool, Vassili. Man will always be a man. There is no new man. We tried so hard to create a society that was equal, where there'd be nothing to envy your neighbour. But there's always something to envy. A smile, a friendship, something you don't have and want to appropriate. In this world, even a Soviet one, there will always be rich and poor. Rich in gifts, poor in gifts. Rich in love, poor in love.

Martin Luther: That day when you sent me out so boldly to change the world, did you really think there wouldn't be a cost?

Martin Luther: The Fourth Lateran Council ruled that salvation could exist outside the church, though not outside Christ.
