King Arthur quotes

Merlyn, why have you never taught me love and marriage?

Proposition: It's far better to be alive than to be dead.

[singing] And -what of teaching me by turning me to animal and bird,
From beaver to the smallest bobolink!
I should have had a -whirl
At changing to a girl,
To learn the way the creatures think!

Merlyn told me once: Never be too disturbed if you don't understand what a woman is thinking. They don't do it often.

I dreamed ... I dreamed.

All we've been through, for nothing but an idea! Something that you cannot taste, smell, or feel; without substance, life, reality, memory.

I love them and they answer me with pain and torment. Be it sin or not sin, they betray me in their hearts and that's far sin enough. I can feel it in their eyes, I can feel it when they speak, and they must pay for it and be punished. I shall not be wounded and not return it in kind! I'm through with feeble hoping! I demand a man's vengeance! [Calming down] Proposition: I'm a king, not a man. And a civilized king. Could it possibly be civilized to destroy what I love? Could it possibly be civilized to love myself above all? What of their pain and their torment? Did they ask for this calamity? Can passion be selected?

The adage, "Blood is thicker than water," was invented by undeserving relatives.

Merlyn! Merlyn, make me a hawk. Let me fly away from here!

[singing] Ask ev'ry person if he's heard the story;
And tell it strong and clear if he has not:
That once there was a fleeting wisp of glory
Called Camelot.
Camelot! Camelot!

[to Mordred] Far more seasoned rascals than you have polished their souls, I advise you, get out the wax. Better to be rubbed clean than rubbed out.

[angrily] Mordred, I must remind you that I am a civilized man. With occasional lapses.
