Episode Quotes
Opening Narration: There is a passion in the human heart that is called aspiration. It flares with the noble flame, and by its light Man has traveled from the caves of darkness to the darkness of outer space. But when this passion becomes lust, when its flame is fanned by greed and private hunger, then aspiration becomes ambition-by which sin the angels fell.

Closing Narration: When this passion called aspiration becomes lust, then aspiration degenerates, becomes vulgar ambition, by which sin the angels fell.

Judith Bellero: Someone spoke of the trembling way: a bridge between Earth and Heaven. When I grew up, I found it in the mythology book. Scandinavians call it the 'Bifrost'. I thought of this is our 'Bifrost'. Trembling way to what for me would be Heaven... power, far-flung holdings, undiminishable authority.
