el aurens

Lawrence of Arabia. The battles of flesh and bullets are over. Another struggle commences. Lawrence, King Faisal, General Allenby, Mr. Dryden. Lawrence has said goodbye before returning to England. King Faisal speaks:

Well, then...


There's nothing further here
for a warrior.

We drive bargains. Old men's work.

Young men make wars, and the virtues of war are the virtues of young men.

Courage and hope for the future.

Then old men make the peace.

And the vices of peace are the vices of old men.

Mistrust and caution.

It must be so.

Eventually, Alec Guinness as King Faisal became the voice of Frank Herbert's Muad'Dib in "Dune".

Or so say I. It is Written.
