"A fire, a fire is burning! I hear the boot of Lucifer, I see his filthy face! And it is my face, and yours, Danforth! For them that quail to bring men out of ignorance, as I have quailed, and as you quail now when you know in all your black hearts that this be fraud--God damns our kind especially, and we will burn, we will burn together" (Miller 111)


"As bare as some December tree I saw them all--walking like saints to church, running to feed the sick, and hypocrites in the hearts!" (Miller 141)

"'We are dead!' shouted Human. Miro had never seen him so agitated. 'We are being murdered every day. Humans are taking up all the worlds. The ships travel through the black of night from star to star to star, filling up every empty place. Here we are, on our little world, watching the sky fill up with humans. The humans build their stupid fence to keep us out, but that is nothing. The sky is our fence!'" (Card 237 Speaker)

"The Speaker is the opposite of us. But to those who were not theologically sophisticated, while Satan was frightening and powerful, so was God.

"You go on. I'm tired. I don't think the Sun Dome is down this way. And, if it is, it's probably got holes in the roof, like the last one. I think I'll just sit here...I've got a gun here that says I'm staying. I just don't give a damn any more. I'm not crazy yet, but I'm the next thing to it. I don't want to go out that way. As soon as you get out of sight I'm going to use this gun on myself" (Bradbury 63).
