William Somerset quotes

[In mock appreciation] It's impressive to see a man feeding off his emotions.

This isn't going to have a happy ending.

If we catch John Doe and he turns out to be the devil – I mean, if he's Satan himself – that might live up to our expectations. But he's not the devil. He's just a man.

[At the library] Gentlemen, gentlemen. I'll never understand. All these books. A world of knowledge at your fingertips. And what do you do? Play poker all night.

If John Doe's head splits open and a UFO should fly out, I want you to have expected it.

[Realizing what's inside the package] California, tell your people to stay away. Stay away now, don't ... don't come in here. Whatever you hear, stay away! John Doe has the upper hand! John Doe has the upper hand!

[Last lines] Ernest Hemingway once wrote, "The world is a fine place and worth fighting for." I agree with the second part.
