Warden:
Did you enjoy God's latest gift?
Teddy Daniels:
What?
Warden:
God's gift. Your violence.
[Daniels looks at him blankly]

Warden:
When I came downstairs in my home, and I saw that tree in my living room, it reached out for me... a divine hand. God loves violence.
Teddy Daniels:
I... I hadn't noticed.
Warden:
Sure you have. Why else would there be so much of it? It's in us. It's what we are. We wage war, we burn sacrifices, and pillage and plunder and tear at the flesh of our brothers. And why? Because God gave us violence to wage in his honor.
Teddy Daniels:
I thought God gave us moral order.
Warden:
There's no moral order as pure as this storm. There's no moral order at all. There's just this: can my violence conquer yours?

Transcript:
Did you enjoy God's latest gift?
-What?
-God's gift.
The violence.
When I came downstairs in my home
and I saw that tree in my living room,
it reached out for me like a divine hand.
God loves violence.
-I hadn't noticed.
- Sure you have.
Why else would there be so much of it?
It's in us.
It's what we are.
We wage war, we burn sacrifices,
and pillage and plunder
and tear at the flesh of our brothers.
And why? Because God gave us
violence to wage in his honor.
I thought God gave us moral order.
There's no moral order
as pure as this storm.
There's no moral order at all.
There's just this,
can my violence conquer yours?
-I'm not violent.
-Yes, you are.
You're as violent as they come.
I know this
because I'm as violent as they come.
If the constraints of society were lifted,
and I was all that stood
between you and a meal,
you would crack my skull with a rock
and eat my meaty parts.
Wouldn't you?
Cawley thinks you're harmless,
that you can be controlled,
but I know different.
-You don't know me.
-Oh, but I do.
-No, you don't. You don't know me at all.
-Oh, I know you.
We've known each other for centuries.
If I was to sink my teeth
into your eye right now,
would you be able to stop me
before I blinded you?
