Ten Classic Quotes From Citizen Kane

1) Charles Foster Kane: Rosebud...

2) Charles Foster Kane: You're right, I did lose a million dollars last year. I expect to lose a million dollars this year. I expect to lose a million dollars next year. You know, Mr. Thatcher, at the rate of a million dollars a year, I'll have to close this place in... 60 years.

3) Leland: You don't care about anything except you. You just want to persuade people that you love 'em so much that they ought to love you back. Only you want love on your own terms. Something to be played your way, according to your rules.

4) Thompson: Mr. Kane was a man who got everything he wanted and then lost it. Maybe Rosebud was something he couldn't get, or something he lost. Anyway, it wouldn't have explained anything... I don't think any word can explain a man's life. No, I guess Rosebud is just a... piece in a jigsaw puzzle... a missing piece.

5) Charles Foster Kane:
You know, Mr. Bernstein, if I hadn't been very rich, I might have been a really great man.

6) Charles Foster Kane: You can't blame me. They've been making statues for some two thousand years, and I've only been collecting for five.

7) Charles Foster Kane: We're gonna be a great opera star.

8) Bernstein:
Old age. It's the only disease, Mr. Thompson, that you don't look forward to being cured of.

9) Bernstein: A fellow will remember a lot of things you wouldn't think he'd remember. You take me. One day, back in 1896, I was crossing over to Jersey on the ferry, and as we pulled out, there was another ferry pulling in, and on it there was a girl waiting to get off. A white dress she had on. She was carrying a white parasol. I only saw her for one second. She didn't see me at all, but I'll bet a month hasn't gone by since that I haven't thought of that girl.

10) Charles Foster Kane:
I don't think there's one word that can describe a man's life.
