#1. Then this is for you," Galahad said, and drew a knife from the pouch at his belt. It was an odd little thing, T-hilted and small enough to fit into a woman's hand. Its translucent blade, only an inch and a half long, was bound with scrolling bronze wire to the bone hilt. "Have a care. Obsidian is sharper than anything else in the world, sharp enough to make sunlight bleed. - Author: Suzannah Rowntree
Arthurian quotes by Suzannah Rowntree
#2. It wasn't the greatest script in the world, but not many people can say they've played a wicked king in a swashbuckling Arthurian special-effects monster movie. - Author: David Thewlis
Arthurian quotes by David Thewlis
#3. Yet some men say in many parts of England that King Arthur is not dead, but had by the will of our Lord Jesu into another place; and men say that he shall come again, and he shall win the holy cross. - Author: Thomas Malory
Arthurian quotes by Thomas Malory
#4. Any Arthurian enthusiast who has watched 'Merlin' has probably concluded that it's not accurate whatsoever - but, it's not meant to be. It's not meant to be a true telling. It's in a fantasy setting, it's really concentrating on the fantasy element. - Author: Colin Morgan
Arthurian quotes by Colin Morgan
#5. I suppose it could be said that indeed all my roads to Arthur have led to my novel, The Green Knight's Apprentice. I read Malory when I was very young and my first reading left me with very v
ivid images that haunt me still: white stags, headless damsels, horns hanging from tree limbs, and giants. Oh yes, I had the usual sword in the stone, lady of the lake, and Holy Grail images, too, I assure you. - Author: Virginia Chandler
Arthurian quotes by Virginia Chandler
#6. No, don't draw away from me. Whatever else I am, I am your son - your most wretched son. If you do not hate me, try to love me a little, Father; it is lonely never to have been loved, only devoured. - Author: Rosemary Sutcliff
Arthurian quotes by Rosemary Sutcliff
#7. Beware what you speak,' said the Merlin very softly, 'for indeed the words we speak make shadows of what is to come, and by speaking them we bring them to pass, my king. - Author: Marion Zimmer Bradley
Arthurian quotes by Marion Zimmer Bradley
#8. The very purpose of a knight is to fight on behalf of a lady. - Author: Thomas Malory
Arthurian quotes by Thomas Malory
#9. Merlin, do you mind?' It was the King who asked me, a man as old and wise as myself; a man who could see past his own crowding problems, and guess what it might men to me, to walk in dead air where once the world had been a god-filled garden. - Author: Mary Stewart
Arthurian quotes by Mary Stewart
#10. I am like a ruined piece of parchment scrawled over and over again with your name, so many times it has become illegible. - Author: Elizabeth Wein
Arthurian quotes by Elizabeth Wein
#11. Growing up in England, I was constantly surrounded by the Arthurian legend. - Author: Jamie Campbell Bower
Arthurian quotes by Jamie Campbell Bower
#12. Another revolution around the sun and I was still no closer to getting home. Laying on my lumpy mattress in my blood-stained shirt and dusty jeans with my arm over my eyes, I tried to imagine I was lying on Violet's couch. Clara paced in her cell and I let myself believe it was Violet, padding around the kitchen. My memory kicked up the image of her in tiny cotton shorts and a baggy Beatles t-shirt making coffee. My chest swelled and more than ever I wished I could see her face again, hear her voice. - Author: Allison Sipe
Arthurian quotes by Allison Sipe
#13. ... the more I seek, the less I find. - Author: Norris J. Lacy
Arthurian quotes by Norris J. Lacy
#14. Oh, Perceval, a falcon is born to hunt, and so are you. One day you will hunt indeed--but not yet."
"Why? Am I not ready?"
She looked at him sadly and said, "Give me a little longer. - Author: Suzannah Rowntree
Arthurian quotes by Suzannah Rowntree
#15. I mean," he said, "that by your own showing, the greatest threat to heaven comes from within the ranks of the angels themselves. Before you can prove to me that heroes can defeat villains with nothing but the purest chivalric ideals, you must convince me that heroes do exist, and that villains are not a fanciful tale for children. You must tell me, sir, if you dare, that you are incorruptible, and that your colleagues and commanders are as pure as you. - Author: Suzannah Rowntree
Arthurian quotes by Suzannah Rowntree
#16. From that day on they lived together as equals, united by their great love for each other. - Author: Warwick Deeping
Arthurian quotes by Warwick Deeping
#17. Marilynn ... passed out black cases to everyone. I opened mine to find an iPad inside. Several candidates whistled. Despite my agitated state, it impressed me too. Maybe wizard school wasn't going to be as lame as I had thought.
"All of your schedules and assignments will be done on these," Marilynn explained. "The whole school is on these. We've had them for awhile now. - Author: Priya Ardis
Arthurian quotes by Priya Ardis
#18. The monster, Hitler, died like Uther, frightened, hiding, haunted by his crimes and his wholly reasonable belief that all decent human beings would turn their backs on him. Who really cares where Hitler's bones lie, or how he died, as long as he is safely dead? Now, in the twenty-first century, Karl Marx's grave in a London cemetery is no longer a rallying cry to the poisoned idea that the end justifies the means. We shall never know for certain where Arthur lies, or if he even lived. If he was a myth, then it was necessary for human beings to invent him. Hail, Arthur, King of the Britons! I wish another hero would take your place, now that the west has such a need of you. - Author: M.K. Hume
Arthurian quotes by M.K. Hume
#19. That Arthur has not always existed seems odd to me. Like the wind on the moors and the wild winter stars, surely he has always lived ... and always will. - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#20. If he failed, it was with honor.
In his name we all dwell
in Camelot

Long after the towers fall,
and merlins nest
in the ruined stones. - Author: Jane Yolen
Arthurian quotes by Jane Yolen
#21. I have always said the success of the show has stemmed from our audience being able to relate to the characters on different levels - being based on the universally loved Arthurian legend is only a tiny part of its success - it's a story about acceptance and growing up. The breathtaking finale of this series leaves you with no doubt that characters have been on their journeys and had their stories told - it's completely the right time to draw our telling of the story to a close. - Author: Katie McGrath
Arthurian quotes by Katie McGrath
#22. I am nothing, yes; I am air and darkness, a word, a promise. I watch in the crystal and I wait in the hollow hills. But out there in the light I have a young king and a bright sword to do my work for me, and build what will stand when my name is only a word for forgotten songs and outworn wisdom, and when your name, Morgause, is only a hissing in the dark. - Author: Mary Stewart
Arthurian quotes by Mary Stewart
#23. I could not see the unholy creature, but I could feel the bone-aching chill of its presence, and I heard the howl of its mindless hate. I quailed to think of the power that had called it into being and loosed it on the world. - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#24. Do not borrow tomorrow's troubles today - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#25. Magic is a matter of focusing the disciplined will. But sometimes the will must be abandoned. The secret lies in knowing when to exercise control, and when to let go. - Author: Marion Zimmer Bradley
Arthurian quotes by Marion Zimmer Bradley
#26. Lo!" said Percivale, "those I had slain were not put to silence. I heard their breath speak out of the lips of others; I saw their looks mock out of the eyes of others; the life that was gone from their bodies was but draughted to enliven fresh matter. In every ray of light, in every gust that blew, the life of the dead moved to confound me. Ah, Saint, the things they had uttered were black and heavy; I could not bear them. - Author: Clemence Housman
Arthurian quotes by Clemence Housman
#27. The most delightful and choicest pleasure is that which is hinted at, but never told. - Author: Chretien De Troyes
Arthurian quotes by Chretien De Troyes

Arthurian quotes by Stephen Klein
#29. Your search will end in death. - Author: Anita Clenney
Arthurian quotes by Anita Clenney
#30. A great ruler, a great court, a great kingdom, these texts suggest never exist unto themselves, as stable, fully actualized entities, and, therefore, are never experienced in their plenitude in the present. Instead, they are always remembered as something that occured in the past or anticipated as something will reoccur in the future. Insofar as they are experienced in the current time, it is only for a brief and evanescent moment, overshadowed by the knowledge that it will soon vanish.
For a realist, the fact that the excellence of a person, a place, or a time is not appreciated in its own time proves that it was never actually as excellent as it seemed.
For a Romantic, however, there exist a people, places, and times whose excellence can only be appreciated Arthur always has to be - to quote the Alliterative Morte Arthure (ca.1400) - "the once and future king - Author: Karen Sullivan
Arthurian quotes by Karen Sullivan
#31. I read H.P. Lovecraft. I also like Sword and Sorcery stuff, Arthurian legend. - Author: Bruce Boxleitner
Arthurian quotes by Bruce Boxleitner
#32. He cupped her head with both hands. "You're full of your own kind of magic, and it's much more rare and beautiful than all the other spells around you. They are commonplace. You are unique. - Author: Thea Harrison
Arthurian quotes by Thea Harrison
#33. The Lord and Lady of the Fair Folk sat at our own table, dressed in robes of red and black, their faces painted in patterns with ash and oils. Their eyes were intense, almost searing, and I found myself still unable to hold their gaze for
more than a moment. I felt naked within their gaze, but even more so, unwhole. As if there were parts of me missing and only they knew where to find them - Author: Virginia Chandler
Arthurian quotes by Virginia Chandler
#34. Do not deceive yourself, Gawain. There are black places in the heart of every man. - Author: Suzannah Rowntree
Arthurian quotes by Suzannah Rowntree
#35. And the Wise Emrys said that Arthur would yet come again to lead his own. - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#36. When I was in high school, I started writing a serial novel, longhand, set in the Arthurian mythos, and influenced not incidentally by Marion Zimmer Bradley's 'The Mists of Avalon.' - Author: Greg Rucka
Arthurian quotes by Greg Rucka
#37. Soft sun shone down on a misty cathedral at the opposite end of a football-field length courtyard. The cathedral had a long pointed tower with beautiful rose and ivory stained glass windows. Pink-petal flowers and deep green ivy climbed the stones from the ground to it's roof. A large fountain stood in the middle of the courtyard with water falling from several lion's heads. Between the misty air and rolling slope of the earth, the grounds reminded me of a long lost fairy tale. - Author: Priya Ardis
Arthurian quotes by Priya Ardis
#38. Blanchefleur felt a quick rush of affection for her. When the world frowned, Branwen went on smiling. There was a heart of steel under all that froth and bubble. - Author: Suzannah Rowntree
Arthurian quotes by Suzannah Rowntree
#39. The spell is Morgians - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#40. It is easier to call the storm from the empty sky than to manipulate the heart of a man; and soon, if my bones did not lie to me, I should be needing all the power I could muster, to pit against a woman; and this is harder to do than anything concerning men, as air is harder to see than a mountain. - Author: Mary Stewart
Arthurian quotes by Mary Stewart
#41. Myrddin', I said gently, 'what is she to you?'
His head whipped round and he glared at me. His mouth was a grimace of revulsion, and his eyes were hard, bright points of pain. 'She is my death - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#42. I totally geeked when I discovered (while in college) that Tolkien had a published version of 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight', so that's my favorite version. I think I have 3 or 4 copies on my bookshelf - Author: Virginia Chandler
Arthurian quotes by Virginia Chandler
#43. Once I discovered Robin Hood and the medieval poem "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight," I realized that I felt a very deep calling to the Wild forest, the deep forest, the Wood that holds the Deep Mysteries and where the Wild Hunt is run.... - Author: Virginia Chandler
Arthurian quotes by Virginia Chandler
#44. In truth I had forgotten all about Arthur and our reason for coming to Benowyc in the first place. - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#45. To behold Queen Gwenhwyvar and the Lady of the Lake together was to peer too long into the sun's brilliant dazzle, to feel the heart lurch in the breast for yearning, to have the words stolen from the tongue before the lips could speak them. - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#46. Did you recently turn into a jerk or have you been one since birth? - Author: Priya Ardis
Arthurian quotes by Priya Ardis
#47. You hate him worse than me, you viper,' he whispered as the stimulant cleared his brain.
'Aye, lord, but here's the oddity of it - I love him too.' Morgan replied, her eyes void of all emotion. - Author: M.K. Hume
Arthurian quotes by M.K. Hume
#48. I took him by the arm to steady him. He opened his eyes slowly, the bright golden gleam now darkened with pain and sorrow. "Morgian!' he uttered, his voice strangled with grief. "It was Morgian ... - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#49. But every time we read a new version of the Arthurian legend, we must compare, contrast, and recreate our image of the characters: each new version is, in a sense, metafiction - Author: Ann F. Howey
Arthurian quotes by Ann F. Howey
#50. The Queen of Air and Darkness tilted back her head and laughed. A more ghastly sound I hope never to hear. 'Do you think I care about these trifles?'
'Murder is no trifle, woman,' Arthur said.
'No? How many men have you killed, Great King? How many have you slain without cause? How many did you cut down that you might have spared? How many died because you in your battle-rage would not heed their pleas for mercy?'
The High King opened his mouth to speak, but could make no answer. - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#51. He had only heard of dragons, and although he had never seen one, he was sure they existed. - Author: Dee Marie
Arthurian quotes by Dee Marie
#52. Like the Arthurian years at Camelot, the Sixties constituted a breakthrough, a fleeting moment of glory, a time when a significant little chunk of humanity briefly realised its moral potential and flirted with its neurological destiny, a collective spiritual awakening that flared brilliantly until the barbaric and mediocre impulses of the species drew tight once more the curtains of darkness. - Author: Tom Robbins
Arthurian quotes by Tom Robbins
#53. We have The Idylls of the King in English class this term. I like some things in them, but I detest Tennyson's Arthur. If I had been Guinevere I'd have boxed his ears - but I wouldn't have been unfaithful to him for Lancelot, who was just as odious in a different way. As for Geraint, if I had been Enid I'd have bitten him. These 'patient Griseldas' deserve all they get. - Author: L.M. Montgomery
Arthurian quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#54. My name is Arianna Morganna Brittany DuLac
you can imagine why I went by the name Ryan. - Author: Priya Ardis
Arthurian quotes by Priya Ardis
#55. At the end of the 1400s, the world changed. Two key dates can mark the beginning of modern times. In 1485, the Wars of the Roses came to an end, and, following the invention of printing, William Caxton issued the first imaginative book to be published in England - Sir Thomas Malory's retelling of the Arthurian legends as Le Morte D'Arthur. In 1492, Christopher Columbus's voyage to the Americas opened European eyes to the existence of the New World. New worlds, both geographical and spiritual, are the key to the Renaissance, the 'rebirth' of learning and culture, which reached its peak in Italy in the early sixteenth century and in Britain during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, from 1558 to 1603. - Author: Ronald Carter
Arthurian quotes by Ronald Carter
#56. Stories require faith, not facts. - Author: T.A. Barron
Arthurian quotes by T.A. Barron
#57. It was Arthur's welcome alone, I believe, which turned the tide of misery for Merlin. - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#58. Gawain laid his hand on his son's shoulder. "Sir Perceval, when the priest reads the lesson, he says that he who would save his life must lose it. Good words for any man, for there are moments when cowardice will bring death more surely than boldness. But the ordinary man knows, when he goes out to meet the wolf in his road, that he may yet come home in peace. Not so the knights of the Round Table. We win through one deadly peril only to face another. If we banish one evil, we must go on to the next and after that, to the next - until death meets us in the path. We yield up our bodies every day, not for glory and fortune but so that those weaker than ourselves may live. Do you understand?"
"I do," said Sir Perceval. "And I say that there is no nobler calling. I am content." But then he thought of the Lady Blanchefleur kissing his brow on a night of fire and blood, and with a sudden ache of grief told himself that even a hundred years of peace would not be enough time to spend with her. - Author: Suzannah Rowntree
Arthurian quotes by Suzannah  Rowntree
#59. It's no secret that I've always had an interest in mythology. Whether it's Arthurian or ancient Greek or even Marvel universe. I've always connected with it on some level. - Author: Nicolas Cage
Arthurian quotes by Nicolas Cage
#60. The Emrys! The Emrys is here!'
Merlin shook his head in astonishment. 'Has it come to this?' he wondered. 'Even small children know me by sight. - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#61. And it seemed to her that time stopped, that her body melted into his as if she were without nerve or bone or will, and his kiss was like fire and ice on her lips. - Author: Marion Zimmer Bradley
Arthurian quotes by Marion Zimmer Bradley
#62. There are Arthurian legends in 14 or 15 medieval European languages. They are the product of no one time or place. On the contrary, in sum they represent a tremendous mine of human understanding, rather as the Bible does. - Author: Kevin Crossley-Holland
Arthurian quotes by Kevin Crossley-Holland
#63. Because this story struck me as extraordinary, and it still does. Once upon a time there was a man in a spacesuit in a secret reconnaissance plane reading The Once and Future King, that great historical epic, that comic, tragic, romantic retelling of the Arthurian legend that tussles with questions of war and aggression, and might, and right, and the matter of what a nation is or might be. - Author: Helen Macdonald
Arthurian quotes by Helen Macdonald
#64. I did not do it for you, sire." Gawain was deadly serious now. "Death comes to us and all mortals. I shall still lose you one day. But Logres! The only perfection under heaven would fall if I could not save you. - Author: Suzannah Rowntree
Arthurian quotes by Suzannah Rowntree
#65. With her face tilted up to his, the subtle edge of moonlight touched along the edge of one high cheekbone, the tilted edge of one eye, and those beautiful, enticing lips. Obeying an impulse he couldn't put into words, he lowered his head and covered her mouth with his. - Author: Thea Harrison
Arthurian quotes by Thea Harrison
#66. I had been obsessed with the Arthurian legends all my life, and I knew that that would work its way into any trilogy I wrote. I was fascinated by the Eddas, the Norse and Icelandic legends, Odin on the world tree. - Author: Guy Gavriel Kay
Arthurian quotes by Guy Gavriel Kay
#67. Arthur!' I cried, but my voice was lost in the battle roar. The seething waters of the enemy host closed over the place where he had been. - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#68. Aye, we all know your fondness for apples, brother. - Author: Phyllis Ann Karr
Arthurian quotes by Phyllis Ann Karr
#69. I did a game at Atari Research called 'Excalibur' about the Arthurian legends. At the time, it was very, very complicated, very involved and so forth and actually still looks better than some of the modern games in terms of its richness and involvement. - Author: Chris Crawford
Arthurian quotes by Chris Crawford
#70. All that winter's day and far into the night the kings twisted and squirmed, but Merlin held them in his iron grasp and would not let go. He became first a rock, and then a mountain in Arthur's defence. Arthur stood equally unmoved. No power on earth could have prevailed against them ... - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#71. Ah Gawaine, Gawaine, ye have betrayed me; for never shall my court be amended by you, but ye will never be sorry for me as I am for you - Author: Thomas Malory
Arthurian quotes by Thomas Malory
#72. Look out your window on a morning in spring, ten or twenty years hence, and perhaps you'll see me coming. - Author: Suzannah Rowntree
Arthurian quotes by Suzannah Rowntree
#73. From what I've read, everyone has a claim on Merlin. Was he Scottish, Welsh, English or even French? All these countries have got a big claim on him and Camelot. That's why the Arthurian legends are so popular - because they are such good stories. - Author: Colin Morgan
Arthurian quotes by Colin Morgan
#74. Listen
strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. - Author: Michael Palin
Arthurian quotes by Michael Palin
#75. As we rode slowly through the battle camp, the sounds and smells of war overwhelmed my senses: horses stamping and sweating in anticipation; men shouting; the steady rhythm of metal grinding on stone; leather snapping and buckling, and woo
d crackling in flame. The simmering energy of warriors as they eagerly awaited battle slithered through the camp like an invisible serpent - Author: Virginia Chandler
Arthurian quotes by Virginia Chandler
#76. I searched until I panted for breath, but could not find it. The solid stone structure was nowhere to be seen. The house was gone - and Merlin with it. - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#77. He sighed and shook his head slowly. 'And there will be no bringing back the light once it has gone. - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#78. In any Arthurian text, whether a rewriting, a translation or a complication of episodes, engages implicitly as well as explicitly with the surrounding context provided by this corpus, and the reader cannot help but situate their reading in relation to this - Author: Laura Chuchan Campbell
Arthurian quotes by Laura Chuchan Campbell
#79. The essence of wisdom is to know when to be doing, and when it's useless even to try - Author: Mary Stewart
Arthurian quotes by Mary Stewart
#80. He said, and his voice was strained as if he had had a mortal wound, 'Gwenhwyfar-' He so seldom spoke her formal name, it was always my lady or my queen, or when he spoke to her in play it was always Gwen. When he spoke it now, it seemed to her she had never heard a sweeter sound. 'Gwenhwyfar. Why do you weep?'
Now she must lie, and lie well, because, she could not in honor tell him the truth. She said, 'Because-' and stopped, and then, in a choking voice, she said, 'because I do not know how I shall live if you go away. - Author: Marion Zimmer Bradley
Arthurian quotes by Marion Zimmer Bradley
#81. It is one thing to have the gift of seeing the spirits and hearing the Gods who move about us as we come and go; but it is a gift of darkness as well as light. - Author: Mary Stewart
Arthurian quotes by Mary Stewart
#82. It was like listening to the universe in motion. Planets spinning on their appointed courses, the lives of men intersecting and parting, the unimaginable harmony of the human body itself in hierarchy and order, were all implied in the song, but something greater as well: the genius of the composer, which must surely approach the miraculous. Perceval closed his eyes and was lost in the weaving music. - Author: Suzannah Rowntree
Arthurian quotes by Suzannah Rowntree
#83. That night she dreamed about the King again.
She stood in a riverside meadow between greenwood and castle. Overhead the sun shone gilt in a sky like powdered lapis and struck golden sparks from the King's blood-red dragon banner. - Author: Suzannah Rowntree
Arthurian quotes by Suzannah Rowntree
#84. But even the longest day wears to sunset. - Author: Marion Zimmer Bradley
Arthurian quotes by Marion Zimmer Bradley
#85. The sweetness of love is short-lived, but the pain endures. - Author: Thomas Malory
Arthurian quotes by Thomas Malory
#86. Why does the third of the three brothers, who shares his food with the old woman in the wood, go on to become king of the country? Why does James Bond manage to disarm the nuclear bomb a few seconds before it goes off rather than, as it were, a few seconds afterwards? Because a universe where that did not happen would be a dark and hostile place. Let there be goblin hordes, let there be terrible environmental threats, let there be giant mutated slugs if you really must, but let there also be hope. It may be a grim, thin hope, an Arthurian sword at sunset, but let us know that we do not live in vain. - Author: Terry Pratchett
Arthurian quotes by Terry Pratchett
#87. All I could think of was the phrase my dad's father used to say to him when I was a kid, "Don't let your alligator mouth overload your hummingbird ass," and I think I'd done just that. - Author: Brynn Myers
Arthurian quotes by Brynn Myers
#88. Sir Ector looked into the fire, fidgeting with something in his pocket.
"I have something for you," he said at last. "It was your mother's." And he drew out the thing in his pocket and held it up to her.
The ring Blanche took from him was antique silver, cabochon-set with a glimmering moonstone. Her mother's ring! Blanche folded it into her hand and held tightly to the only thing her parents had left her. - Author: Suzannah Rowntree
Arthurian quotes by Suzannah Rowntree
#89. Thinking and planning is one side of life; doing is another. A man cannot be
doing all the time. - Author: Mary Stewart
Arthurian quotes by Mary Stewart
#90. Guenever never cared for God. She was a good theologian, but that was all. The truth was that she was old and wise: she knew that Lancelot did care for God most passionately, that it was essential he should turn in that direction. So, for his sake, to make it easier for him, the great queen now renounced what she had fought for all her life, now set the example, and stood to her choice. She had stepped out of the picture.
Lancelot guessed a good deal of this, and, when she refused to see him, he climbed the convent wall with Gallic, ageing gallantry. He waylaid her to expostulate, but she was adamant and brave. Something about Mordred seems to have broken her lust for life. They parted, never to meet on earth. - Author: T.H. White
Arthurian quotes by T.H. White
#91. There are well known Arthurian figures in the book, and some not so well known. Mabon plays a pivotal role in the tale as the Motherless Child who helps Rhowbyn, the narrator of the tale, to find and reconcile with his missing parent. Th
ere is a game of riddles in which Mabon and Rhowbyn engage that is both an homage to Tolkien and a nod of acknowledgement to events from 'The Mabinogion' and specifically the tale of Culwch and Olwen - Author: Virginia Chandler
Arthurian quotes by Virginia Chandler
#92. He holds the sword!' shouted Merlin. 'And that has not changed. Whoever would be king must first take the sword from Arthur's hand. For I tell you truly, none among you will be king without it! - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#93. Arthur stood alone in the centre of the ring of kings. In the flickering light of the Christ Mass candles, holding the sword easily by the hilt, alert, resolute, unafraid, he appeared an avenging angels, eyes alight with the bright fire of righteousness. - Author: Stephen R. Lawhead
Arthurian quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
