More Than You KnowCharles Xavier: (to Erik) "There's so much more to you then you know. Not just pain and anger. There's good too, I felt it. And when you can access all of it, you'll possess a power no one can match. Not even me."

A New SpeciesCharles Xavier: "A new species is being born. Help me guide it, shape it, lead it."
We can hear the origins of the Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters here in Charles' plans to shape the next generation. His plea to Erik Lehnsherr, of course, would come back years later to haunt him, as Magneto will go on to lead the villainous Brotherhood of Mutants in an ongoing war against humanity.

Killing for PeaceProfessor Charles Xavier: "Listen to me very carefully, my friend: Killing will not bring you peace."
Erik Lehnsherr: "Peace was never an option."
This film establishes the relationship between Professor X and Magneto, when the two were young men discovering their powers together. In the series of films set later on in their lives, the characters have split permanently on this very issue - whether to make peace with humanity or continue to fight for mutant rights.

You Can't Even Accept YourselfErik Lehnsherr: "If you're using half your concentration to look normal, then you're only half paying attention to whatever else you're doing. Just pointing out something that could save your life. You want society to accept you, but you can't even accept yourself."
This quote echoes much of Lehnsherr/Magneto's moral philosophy regarding mutants. He feels that they should not waste energy trying to blend in with humanity, but should celebrate their physical superiority.
