Chariots of Fire quotes

Lord Birkenhead: Ah, Liddell! I was afraid you weren't here.
Eric Liddell: I'm afraid I am, sir.

Master of Trinity: Life slips by, Abrahams, life slips by!

Sam Mussabini: Do you want to know why you lost today? (Harold nods)
Sam Mussabini: You're over striding. (Sets coins in a row)
Sam Mussabini: Now these coins represent the steps in your sprint. (Pushes coins together)
Sam Mussabini: Can you find me another two coins, Mr. Abraham? (Harold looks up)
Sam Mussabini: Remember, over striding. Death for the sprinter (shakes his head)
Sam Mussabini: . Knocks you back. (Slaps Harold across the cheek. Harold winces)
Sam Mussabini: Like that! (Slaps Harold again)
Sam Mussabini: And that! (Sam laughs and grabs Harold by the arm)
Sam Mussabini: .

Harold M. Abrahams: You, Aubrey, are my most complete man.
Harold M. Abrahams: You're brave, compassionate, kind: a content man. That is your secret, contentment; I am 24 and I've never know it.
Harold M. Abrahams: I'm forever in pursuit and I don't even know what I am chasing.

Eric Liddell: You came to see a race today. To see someone win. It happened to be me. But I want you to do more than just watch a race. I want you to take part in it. I want to compare faith to running in a race. It's hard. It requires concentration of will, energy of soul. You experience elation when the winner breaks the tape - especially if you've got a bet on it. But how long does that last? You go home. Maybe you're dinner's burnt. Maybe you haven't got a job. So who am I to say, "Believe, have faith," in the face of life's realities? I would like to give you something more permanent, but I can only point the way. I have no formula for winning the race. Everyone runs in her own way, or his own way. And where does the power come from, to see the race to its end? From within. Jesus said, "Behold, the Kingdom of God is within you. If with all your hearts, you truly seek me, you shall ever surely find me." If you commit yourself to the love of Christ, then that is how you run a straight race.

Duke of Sutherland: A sticky moment, George.
Lord Birkenhead: Thank God for Lindsay. I thought the lad had us beaten.
Duke of Sutherland: He did have us beaten, and thank God he did.
Lord Birkenhead: I don't quite follow you.
Duke of Sutherland: The "lad", as you call him, is a true man of principles and a true athlete. His speed is a mere extension of his life, its force. We sought to sever his running from himself.
Lord Birkenhead: For his country's sake, yes.
Lord Birkenhead: No sake is worth that, least of all a guilty national pride.

Harold M. Abrahams: If I can't win, I won't run!
Sybil Gordon: If you don't run, you can't win.
