  • 1. Famous Quotes from The Crucible
  • 2. Famous Quotes From The Crucible It was in 1953 that Arthur Miller – an American playwright – scripted The Crucible and used it to draw a parable between the Salem witch trials of 1692/1693 (Province of Massachusetts Bay) and McCarthyism; an initiative taken up by the U.S Government to ostracize indicted communists. In ways, The Crucible turned out to be a dramatic composition very pertinent to its time, and Miller depicted the dramatization with authority as he himself endured scrutiny and harassment from the government when he refused to name comrades of his who had attended meetings with him.

Quotes From The Crucible About Fear “There is prodigious fear in seeking loose spirits” “You must understand, sir that a person is either with this court or he must be counted against it, there be no road between. This is a sharp time, now, a precise time—we live no longer in the dusky afternoon when evil mixed itself with good and befuddled the world. Now, by God’s grace, the shining sun is up, and them that fear not light will surely praise it.”[Danforth’s] Quotes From The Crucible About Religion These quotes from The Crucible shed light on the personal beliefs of the different characters in the play, what the people of Salem either believed themselves or were led to believe with regards to Jesus, and also perception of the Devil. “Sex, sin, and the Devil were early linked.” “Life, woman, life is God’s most precious gift; no principle, however glorious, may justify the taking of it.” Read More Quotes Here Quotes From The Crucible About Respect “There is a misty plot afoot so subtle we should be criminal to cling to old respects and ancient friendships.” [Reverend Hale speaks with Francis Nurse]
  • 3. “I- have no knowledge in that line. But it’s hard to think so pious a woman be secretly a Devil’s bitch after seventy year of such good prayer.” [Proctor converses with Hale and Elizabeth. Both he and Elizabeth share the hope that Rebecca’s reputation as a woman of God will do well to save her] Quotes From The Crucible On Lying “Because it is my name! Because I cannot have another in my life! Because I lie and sign myself to lies! Because I am not worth the dust on the feet of them that hang! How may I live without my name? I have given you my soul; leave me my name!” [Proctor] So as I stated towards the beginning of this text, quotes from The Crucible are deep. But in order to truly grasp their context, it would do well for the reader to get hold of either the complete script or the movie adaptation.
