“Now, don’t make something personal out of this, Tanner. Perry’s dead. That doesn’t mean you’re right and I’m wrong. It means Perry’s dead.”
–Major Eugene Denton (played by George Peppard)
screenplay by Alan Sharp and Lukas Heller
Based on the novel by Roger Zelazny
This is one in a series of quotations.
I’ve been working, from time to time, on a book of quotations for many years. I call it, “The Mind Boggles”, from one of my favorite quotations. I do source quotations a bit differently from a lot of people. In the case of a work of a fiction, I consider that the character said the line…not the author. As a bit of an author myself (in a minor way), I can tell you…my characters definitely say things that I would never say. These are all quotations that I’ve collected myself: I’ve read the book, seen the TV episode, and so on.
Hope you enjoy them!
