Metropolis – Maria Quotes

Maria takes the children of the workers from the city, and shows them the Eternal Gardens and their mysterious inhabitants:

Maria: Look! These are your brothers!…Look- – ! These are your brothers!

Maria preaches to the workers:

Maria: Today I will tell you the legend of THE TOWER OF BABEL…(Flashback) Come let us build us a tower whose top may reach unto the stars! And on top of the tower, we will write the words: Great is the world and its Creator! And great is Man! …but the minds that had conceived the Tower of Babel could not build it. The task was too great. So they hired hands for wages.

(Streams and columns of naked, bald and chained slaves surge toward the tower from five directions)

Maria: But the hands that built the Tower of Babel knew nothing of the dream of the brain that had conceived it. BABEL.

(Thousands of slaves labor to move large slabs of rock – the words BABEL begin dripping blood)

Maria: One man’s hymns of praise became other men’s curses. People spoke the same language, but could not understand each other.

(Maria clutching her left breast)

Maria: HEAD and HANDS need a mediator! THE MEDIATOR BETWEEN HEAD AND HANDS MUST BE THE HEART!

Maria spots Freder in the background:

Maria: Oh mediator, have you finally come?

Freder: You called me — here I am!
