My darling Abigail... I hope you and Jack are doing well. I remain a fool... and I'm sure I shall die a fool... but I'm trying very hard... to be something like the man you deserve. I have done something very silly in an effort to impress you. And that is I've purchased a home. The land you read about in the newspaper up at Beecher's Hope is now ours and we are going to try our hand at ranching. Mr. Geddes kindly helped me buy the land. I met Uncle when I was coming out of the bank and while I know your feelings about him he has been enormously helpful in his own fashion. Charles Smith has also appeared and is unsurprisingly a pillar of strength. Together... we've built you a home. I hope soon to show it to you. I miss you and the boy more than I can express. Please... come back to me. Yours always... John.
John Marston's letter
You have learned the most important lesson of all... that only one thing matters! And all else is lies.
Blind Man
Frank Heck... Frank Heck looked at the sheriff coldly... "clearly you don't know who I am." He snarled. And before the sheriff could blink, the fastest young man West of the Grizzlies had filled him full of cold lead. The town was free once more.

Things go wrong sometimes. People die. It's the way it is, always has been. Me, you, Dutch... we've all been in this line of work a long time, and we're still here, so... I figure we must've got it right a hell of a lot more than we got it wrong.

John Marston Quotes

Red Dead Redemption II

John Marston - Red Dead Redemption 2.jpg

What do I know? I don't know a thing. I mean, that man I killed for, the man I ran for, the man I believed in, is that still the same man I see now? Guess about all I got left now is doubts. Doubts and scars.
John Marston around a campfire
And people just gonna forget about us? That's nonsense... people don't forget... nothing gets forgiven.
John Marston to Hosea Matthews
Listen... I didn't get these scars falling over in church.
John Marston to Dutch van der Linde around a campfire
Listen to me. Don't none of you... never go do something stupid and get yourself a woman. You hear me? Trust your old uncle John on this one. And if you got one, get rid of 'em. Go drown them in the goddamn ocean, because trust me boys, it's you... or them. You or them, they'll kill you! But they won't do you the kindness of shooting you or slitting your throat. They will slowly grind you down to dust with the nagging and the demands and the complaints. You will die the most painful death imaginable, and that's this. The slow realization that you would rather be dead than have to listen to her crap for a moment longer. And if you knew you could kill her and get away with it, you would! Trust me on that.
John Marston around a campfire

Red Dead Redemption

New Austin

Clan picture.jpg

Even in this new country, memories don't really fade. My father was an illiterate Scot, born on the boat into New York. He never saw his homeland but, to hear him talk about it, you would imagine he only ever ate haggis and wore a kilt. And he hated the English for what they had done to his great grandparents that he'd never met. People don't forget. Nothing gets forgiven.
John Marston to Bonnie MacFarlane in Women and Cattle
I think it's this land that makes the men, as much as the other way around. Men are born, and then they're formed, at least that's how I see it.
John Marston in Spare the Rod, Spoil the Bandit

Nuevo Paraiso

While there are guns and money, there won't be any freedom, Luisa.
John Marston to Luisa Fortuna in Father Abraham
If you win power, remember why you wanted it.
John Marston to Abraham Reyes in An Appointed Time

West Elizabeth

Marston Ranch

Well, some trees flourish, others die. Some cattle grow strong, others are taken by wolves. Some men are born rich enough and dumb enough to enjoy their lives. Ain't nothing fair. You know that.
John Marston to Abigail Marston in The Outlaw's Return
If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing you do is stop diggin'.
John Marston to Abigail Marston in Old Friends, New Problems
It ain't no secret I didn't get these scars fallin' over in church.
John Marston to Jack Marston in Spare the Love, Spoil the Child
I'll catch up. You keep riding and don't look back and don't be worrying about me, you hear? Now get going...
John Marston to Jack Marston and Abigail Marston in The Last Enemy That Shall Be Destroyed
My name is Jack Marston - you knew my father.
Jack Marston to Edgar Ross in Remember My Family

Evelyn Miller

The whole point of America is freedom. Freedom of thought, freedom of deed, freedom of action. Yet how have most of our brethren responded to having their yokes cast off by getting on that boat from Europe? By enslaving themselves. They may no longer be serfs tending some master's field and giving him rights of refusal on their wives, but they have found themselves new masters in the relentlessness of ownership. The attempts at dominion over the land have enslaved them, not the land. In owning things, people, businesses, the former serfs of Europe have become not masters, not stewards, but intellectual dwarfs managed by the world quite as much as Europe's enduring peasantry. And in many ways, more so for they are tricked into believing they are free, whereas the peasant knows he is trapped.
Dutch van der Linde reading a passage from Mr. Miller
So, the question of the seeker of allegorical potency should ask himself, or indeed herself, if potency is not itself too masculine a concern for our sisters to be concerned with, is this... is it in the seeking that we find, or in the finding that we seek? While this might seem a pathway towards insanity, it's an important distinction, and also a clear one, he who finds things is wise, but he who continues to seek is evermore free.
Dutch van der Linde reading a passage from Mr. Miller
I can't fight my own nature... none of us can.
Evelyn Miller to John Marston in The American Inferno, Burnt Out


He that is so impoverished that he hath no oblation... chooseth a tree that will not rot. He seeketh unto him a cunning workman to prepare a graven image, that shall not be moved. Have ye not known? Have ye not heard? Hath it not been told to you from the beginning? Have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? Is it he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers... that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in. That bringeth the princes to nothing; He maketh the judges of the earth as vanity. Yea, they shall not be planted; yea, they shall not be sown; yea, their stock shall not take root in the earth and he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, and the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble. To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? Saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold those who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number and calleth them all by names, by the greatness of His might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth. Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speaketh oh Israel. My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from God? Hast thou not known? Hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the Earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? There is no searching of His understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might, He increaseth their strength. Even the youths shall be faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fail. But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Orville Swanson's Bible Passage, Isaiah 40:20-31
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he haths, he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised four our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we, like sheep, have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Jack Marston's Bible Passage, Isaiah 53:3-6
