„Oh, Christ!“ The Exorcist

„God never talks. But the devil keeps advertising, Father. The devil does a lot of commercials.“ The Exorcist


„Perhaps evil is the crucible of goodness... and perhaps even Satan - Satan, in spite of himself - somehow serves to work out the will of God.“ The Exorcist

„We mourn the blossoms of May because they are to whither; but we know that May is one day to have its revenge upon November, by the revolution of that solemn circle which never stops---which teaches us in our height of hope, ever to be sober, and in our depth of desolation, never to despair.“ The Exorcist

„The demon is a liar. He will lie to confuse us; but he will also mix lies with the truth to attack us. His attack is psychological, Damien. And powerful.“ The Exorcist

„Yet I think the demon's target is not the possessed; it is us... the observers... every person in this house. And I think---I think the point is to make us despair; to reject our own humanity, Damien: to see ourselves as ultimately bestial; as ultimately vile and putrescent; without dignity; ugly; unworthy.“ The Exorcist

„As far as God goes, I _am_ a nonbeliever. Still am. But when it comes to a devil---well, that's something else.“ The Exorcist

„You don't blame us for being here, do you? After all, we have no place to go. No home... Incidentally, what an excellent day for an exorcism...“ The Exorcist


„There it lies, I think, Damien … possession; not in wars, as some tend to believe; not so much; and very rarely in extraordinary interventions such as here … this girl … this poor child. No, I tend to see possession most often in the little things, Damien: in the senseless, petty spites and misunderstandings; the cruel and cutting word that leaps unbidden to the tongue between friends. Between lovers. Between husbands and wives. Enough of these and we have no need of Satan to manage our wars; these we manage for ourselves … for ourselves.“ The Exorcist

„We use concepts like "consciousness"---"mind"---"personality," but we don't really know yet what these things are.' He was shaking his head. 'Not really. Not at all.“ The Exorcist

„This century hasn't got the lock on insanity.“ The Exorcist

„How many husbands and wives must believe they have fallen out of love because their hearts no longer race at the sight of their beloveds!“ The Exorcist


„Would you like to hear a nice definition of jealousy? It's the feeling that you get when someone you absolutely detest is having a wonderful time without you.“ Legion

„What looked like morning was the beginning of endless night“ The Exorcist

„The demon's target is not the possessed; it is us the observers.. everyone in this house. I think the point is to make us despair.. to reject our humanity: to see ourselves as ultimately bestial, vile and putrescent; without dignity; ugly; unworthy.“ The Exorcist

„Like the brief doomed flare of exploding suns that registers dimly on blind men's eyes, the beginning of the horror passed almost unnoticed; in the shriek of what followed, in fact, was forgotten and perhaps not connected to the horror at all.“ The Exorcist
