Charlie Anderson (saying grace with his family): "Lord, we cleared this land. We plowed it, sowed it, and harvested it. We cooked the harvest. It wouldn't be here and we wouldn't be eating it if we hadn't done it all ourselves. We worked dog-bone hard for every crumb and morsel, but we thank You, just the same, Lord, for the food we're about to eat, amen."
Charlie Anderson: "Can you give me one good reason why I should send my family down that road like a bunch of damn fools?" Lt. Johnson: "Virginia needs all of her sons, Mr. Anderson." Charlie Anderson: "These are my sons! They don't belong to the state. When they were babies, I never saw the state coming around with a spare tit! We never asked anything of the state, and never expected anything."
Charlie Anderson (at his wife's, and recently buried children's graves): "I don't even know what to say to you any more, Martha... There's not much I can tell you about this war. It's like all wars, I guess. The undertakers are winning. And the politicians who talk about the glory of it. And the old men who talk about the need of it. And the soldiers, well, they just wanna go home. I guess you're not so lonely any more, with Ann and James and Jacob. And maybe the boy. You didn't know Ann, did you? Well, you'd like her. You'd like her, Martha. Why, she and James are so much alike, they're just like... no... no... we were never that much alike, were we Martha? We just sorta grew alike through the years. But I wish, I wish I could just know what you're thinking about it all, Martha. And maybe it wouldn't seem so bad to me if I knew what you thought about it. (The church bells start ringing) ...You never give up, do you?"
