Charlotte Rampling: Miss Emily

Quotes 

  • Miss Emily : We didn't have The Gallery in order to look into your souls. We had The Gallery to see if you had souls at all. Do you understand?

    Kathy : Yes.

  • Miss Emily : Hailsham was the last place to consider the ethics of donation. You have to understand - cancer used to kill almost everyone. Now it kills no one at all. We used your art to show what you were capable of. To show that donor children were all but human. But it was all a mistake. We were providing an answer to a question that no one was asking. You see - it's not an ethical issue - it's just about the way we are. If you ask people to return to darkness, the days of lung cancer and breast cancer and motor neurone disease... they simply say no. Do you understand?

  • Miss Emily : We didn't have the Gallery in order to look into your souls. We had the Gallery in order to see if you had souls at all.
