Quotation by Sydney Boehm

You've spent too much time with the stars. You don't know anything about living, the law of the jungle, the human jungle. I do, I've spent my life at it. You don't know what your civilized people will do to cling to life. I do, because I know I'd cling if I had to kill to do it. And so will you.
Sydney Boehm (1908–1990), U.S. screenwriter, and Rudolph Maté:.. Stanton (John Hoyt), When Worlds Collide, Trying to convince Dr. Hendron that they will need guns to fight off the people left behind to die. (1951).

Based on a novel by Edwin Bulmer and Philip Wylie (1902-1971).
