(Martha Scott as Miriam)

"There is no law by which to determine the superiority of nations. A people risen, run their race, and die of themselves or at the hands of another, who, succeeding to their power, take possession of their place, and upon their monuments write new names; such is history" - Miriam, Ben Hur's mother, talks to him before the arrival of the new Roman Procurator, from Ben Hur by Lew Wallace.
