The Inverted Cross

Contrary to popular belief, the inverted cross is not a Satanic symbol. It’s the mark of Saint Peter, who (the legend goes) asked to be crucified upside down because he didn’t want to die the same way as Jesus did. Wearing an inverted cross is actually a mark of humility before the awesomeness of God.

How could you set yourself up as the most powerful institution on earth? You first find out what every man feels at least once a day, establish that as a sin, and set yourself up as the only institution capable of pardoning that sin.

From "The Third Man" (Reed, 1949)

  • Holly Martins: Have you ever seen any of your victims?
  • Harry Lime: You know, I never feel comfortable on these sort of things. Victims? Don't be melodramatic. Look down there. Tell me. Would you really feel any pity if one of those dots stopped moving forever? If I offered you twenty thousand pounds for every dot that stopped, would you really, old man, tell me to keep my money, or would you calculate how many dots you could afford to spare? Free of income tax, old man. Free of income tax - the only way you can save money nowadays.
