List of Lord of War quotes.

Anatoly Orlov: Is this how you want to be remembered?
Yuri Orlov: (chuckles) I don't want to be remembered at all. If I'm being remembered, it means I'm dead.


Yuri Orlov: Where there's a will, there's a weapon.


Jack Valentine: Since your so concern with the law, you must know that I am legally permitted to hold for 24 hours without charging you. You might ask why I would do that, and I can assure you its not because I enjoy you company because I don't. *No*. The *Reason* why I will delay you for *every sec* of the permissible 24 hours is I'm delaying your deadly trade and the deaths of *your* victims. I don't think of it as taking a day away from you but giving a day to them. Some innocent man, woman or child is going to have an extra day on this Earth because you're not *free*. So I will see you in 23 hours and 55 mins.
