Movie Quote of the Day – The Crucible, 1996 (dir. Nicholas Hytner)

John Proctor: Tell them Proctor broke to his knees and wept like a woman. But, my. . .my name. . .I cannot sign.
Judge Thomas Danforth: Why?  Do you mean to deny this confession when you are free?
John Proctor: I mean to deny nothing.
Judge Thomas Danforth: Then explain to me why you will not —
John Proctor: Because it is my naaaaaaame! Because I cannot have another in my life! Because I lie and sign myself to liiiiiiies! Because I am not worth the dust on the feet of them you have hanged! I have given you my soul; leave me my naaaaaaame!
