“We are at war, and in time of war there is only one rule. Form your battalion and fight.”
Kermit Roosevelt III, Allegiance

“I never wanted to safe... I wanted to be good.”
Kermit Roosevelt III, Allegiance

“From the front row of the balcony, I look out over the Uptown Cinema. The red velvet seats are emptying, the credits scrolling up the screen. Ginger Rogers married a Nazi, but Cary Grant got her out of it. Their ship is sailing to America; sun burns away the fog and the wind blows free. Now they are gone and I am coming back to reality, breathing a harsher air. It is how I always feel when a movie ends.”
Kermit Roosevelt III, Allegiance
