#1. Channel Firing
BY THOMAS HARDY
That night your great guns, unawares,
Shook all our coffins as we lay,
And broke the chancel window-squares,
We thought it was the Judgment-day

And sat upright. While drearisome
Arose the howl of wakened hounds:
The mouse let fall the altar-crumb,
The worms drew back into the mounds,

The glebe cow drooled. Till God called, "No;
It's gunnery practice out at sea
Just as before you went below;
The world is as it used to be:

"All nations striving strong to make
Red war yet redder. Mad as hatters
They do no more for Christés sake
Than you who are helpless in such matters.

"That this is not the judgment-hour
For some of them's a blessed thing,
For if it were they'd have to scour
Hell's floor for so much threatening....

"Ha, ha. It will be warmer when
I blow the trumpet (if indeed
I ever do; for you are men,
And rest eternal sorely need)."

So down we lay again. "I wonder,
Will the world ever saner be,"
Said one, "than when He sent us under
In our indifferent century!"

And many a skeleton shook his head.
"Instead of preaching forty year,"
My neighbour Parson Thirdly said,
"I wish I had stuck to pipes and beer."

Again the guns disturbed the hour,
Roaring their readiness to avenge,
As far inland as Stourton Tower,
And Camelot, - Author: Thomas Hardy
Camelot quotes by Thomas Hardy
#2. Arthur was carved from the same stuff as Camelot - regal and majestic. But Mordred belonged out here, with her. - Author: Kiersten White
Camelot quotes by Kiersten White
#3. When I think of Camelot, I think of the castle in France where we film, but I think it's wrong to lock it down to one place because it's all part of our imagination. They are legends for a reason. Their stories have endured for hundreds of years and, hopefully, they will for hundreds of years to come. - Author: Colin Morgan
Camelot quotes by Colin Morgan
#4. Athletics lasts for such a short period of time. It ends for people. But while it lasts, it creates this make-believe world where normal rules don't apply. We build this false atmosphere. When it's over and the harsh reality sets in, that's the real joke we play on people ... Everybody wants to experience that superlative moment, and being an athlete can give you that. It's Camelot for them. But there's even life after it. - Author: H. G. Bissinger
Camelot quotes by H. G. Bissinger
#5. I believe God has instilled in us a craving, a deep desire to run with Him on a fantastic adventure, yet many of us crawl along in life without even a glimpse of our hidden passion. There has to be a reason for living. There must be a Camelot, a hidden Utopia where we can rest from our personal campaigns. Fantasy opens our eyes to a better place, a shining city we do not yet know. And these stories provide a mental bridge to that city as we pursue horizons we could never distinguish with our physical eyes. - Author: Bryan Davis
Camelot quotes by Bryan Davis
#6. Anyway, it's unthinkable! Dragons and knights are born enemies. They need to be enemies just like dogs hate cats, cats hate mice and mice hate scientists. Without somebody to hate where would all the hate go? The hate would just boil up inside you, eat away and cause you to have indigestion then a heart attack. We need to release the anger, and we release it on dragons who release it back on us. We slay them and they roast us. It is the natural order of things, Emma. - Author: Elias Zapple
Camelot quotes by Elias Zapple
#7. The hell with your secrets," shouted Bonnie.
"Language, language! How about this: One of you has kept a secret all
their life, and is doing so even now. One of you is a murderer - and I am
not speaking of a vampire, or a mercy killing, or anything like that. And
then there is the question of the true identity of Sage - good luck on your
research there!One of you has already had their memory erased - and I don't mean
Damon or Stefan. And what about the secret, stolen kiss? And then there is
the question of what happened the night of the motel, that it seems that nobody
but Elena can recall. You might ask her sometime about her theories about
Camelot. - Author: L.J.Smith
Camelot quotes by L.J.Smith
#8. I have changed my mind on a number of things, including almost everything having to do with Cuba, but the idea that we should be grateful for having been spared, and should shower our gratitude upon the supposed Galahad of Camelot for his gracious lenience in opting not to commit genocide and suicide, seemed a bit creepy. When Kennedy was shot the following year, I knew myself somewhat apart from this supposedly generational trauma in that I felt no particular sense of loss at the passing of such a high-risk narcissist. If I registered any emotion, it was that of mild relief. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Camelot quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#9. There she weaves by night and day, A magic web with colors gay. She has heard a whisper say, A curse is on her if she stay, To look down to Camelot. She knows not what the curse may be, And so she weaveth steadily, And little other care hath she, The Lady of Shalott. - Author: Alfred Lord Tennyson
Camelot quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#10. His very first story, he told me as he was dying, was set in Camelot, the court of King Arthur in Britain: Merlin the Court Magician casts a spell that allows him to equip the Knights of the Round Table with Thompson submachine guns and drums of .45-caliber dumdums.
Sir Galahad, the purest in heart and mind, familiarizes himself with this new virtue-compelling appliance. While doing so, he puts a slug through the Holy Grail and makes a Swiss cheese of Queen Guinevere. - Author: Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Camelot quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#11. Only reapers, reaping early In among the bearded barley, Hear a song that echoes cheerly From the river winding clearly, Down to towered Camelot. - Author: Alfred Lord Tennyson
Camelot quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#12. She left the web, she left the loom, She made three paces through the room - Author: Alfred Lord Tennyson
Camelot quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#13. Wake up! You're a sacred soul and glory is yours for the taking. - Author: Stefan Emunds
Camelot quotes by Stefan Emunds
#14. 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
Camelot quotes by Jane Yolen
#15. Then I saw it, and it just grabbed me. That moment, that breath just before destiny, between innocence and power. He'll pull the sword free. You know it. And in that moment, the world changes. Camelot's born, Arthur's fate is sealed. He'll unite a people, be betrayed by a woman and a friend, and sire the man who'll kill him. In this moment, he's a boy. In the next he'll be a king. - Author: Nora Roberts
Camelot quotes by Nora Roberts
#16. We could all use a little redemption. - Author: Amy Wolf
Camelot quotes by Amy Wolf
#17. We forgave, followed and accepted because we liked the way he looked. And he had a pretty wife. Camelot was fun, even for the peasants, as long as it was televised to their huts. - Author: Joe McGinniss
Camelot quotes by Joe McGinniss
#18. Even perfection is a myth. There is no evidence of a perfect world, a perfect man or a perfect family anywhere on earth. Perfection, be it Rama Rajya or Camelot, exists only in mythology. Yet everyone craves for it. This craving inspires art, establishes empires, sparks revolutions and motivates leaders. Such is the power of myth. - Author: Devdutt Pattanaik
Camelot quotes by Devdutt Pattanaik
#19. Camelot, located nowhere in particular, can be anywhere. - Author: Norris J. Lacy
Camelot quotes by Norris J. Lacy
#20. There's a great deal of love for one another on this club. Perhaps we're living in Camelot. - Author: Jerry Kramer
Camelot quotes by Jerry Kramer
#21. I took the brooch because I was too overcome with irresistible temptation. I was imagining I was Lady Cordelia Fitzgerald, and I just had to wear the brooch over the footbridge of the Lake of Shining Waters, with the wind blowing my auburn hair over to Camelot. I thought I could put it back before you came home, but as I leaned over to look at my reflection in the lake, it slipped from my fingers and sank beneath the rippling waves. That's the best I can do at confessing. Now may I go to the picnic? - Author: L.M. Montgomery
Camelot quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#22. Bridgeport?" Said I.
"Camelot," Said he. - Author: Mark Twain
Camelot quotes by Mark Twain
#23. Are you finally admitting that you can sell a man hope? Have I at last succeeded in teaching you that?'
He laughed and flicked his whip again, harder. He was in a better mood than I had seen for months.
'No, Camelot, not hope. Hope is for the weak; have I not succeeded in teaching you that? To hope is to put your faith in others and in things outside yourself; that way lies betrayal and disappointment. They didn't want hope, Camelot; they wanted certainty. What a man needs is the certainty that he is right, no selfdoubt, no fleeting thought that he might be wrong or misled. Absolute certainty that he is right, that's what gives a man the confidence and power to do whatever he wants and to take whatever he wants from this world and the next. - Author: Karen Maitland
Camelot quotes by Karen Maitland
#24. He was standing in the Inner Court, shouting for his enemy. When Guenever saw him, and he saw her, the electric message went between their eyes before they spoke a word. It was as if Elaine and the whole Quest for the Grail had never been. So far as we can make it out, she had accepted her defeat. He must have seen in her eyes that she had given in to him, that she was prepared to leave him to be himself-to love God, and to do whatever he pleased-so long as he was only Lancelot. she was serene and sane again. she had renounced her possessive madness and was joyful to see him living, whatever he did. They were young creatures-the same creatures whose eyes had met with the almost forgotten click of magnets in the smoky Hall of Camelot so long ago. And, in truly yielding, she had won the battle by mistake. - Author: T.H. White
Camelot quotes by T.H. White
#25. Oxford in the Inklings' day was not so different in look and smell from the Oxford of today. Then, as now, one was tempted to fantasize one's surroundings as a Camelot of intellectual knight-errantry or an Eden of serene contemplation. Then, as now, there was bound to be disappointment. - Author: Philip Zaleski
Camelot quotes by Philip Zaleski
#26. There's always hope when it's a question of whether we should love. - Author: Kathryn Rose
Camelot quotes by Kathryn Rose
#27. I read as much as I could, but really just spoke to Chris Chibnall and asked all the pertinent questions. That made me feel like we weren't going to do an off-the-peg Camelot, which has been touched upon in many films and TV series before. I really just picked his brain and, in doing so, I got fired up by tackling Merlin in a fresher angle. - Author: Joseph Fiennes
Camelot quotes by Joseph Fiennes
#28. I've always regarded it as a test of character to dislike the Kennedys. I don't really respect anyone who falls for Camelot. - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Camelot quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#29. To expect and dread a thing for a lifetime; does not prepare you for the thing itself. - Author: Mary Stewart
Camelot quotes by Mary Stewart
#30. That's really why I wanted to do it. I wanted to be a part of this generation's telling of Camelot, and also get the chance to play a fantastic, complex, interesting, emotionally passionate, young lead role. - Author: Tamsin Egerton
Camelot quotes by Tamsin Egerton
#31. 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
Camelot quotes by Tom Robbins
#32. Guinevere and Arthur's story is so about the passion. It's about the sexual attraction between them. You can't have that story and show that sexual attraction with them kissing, and then shut the door. It just doesn't work. It's such an important part of their relationship and what happens in Camelot later on. It's who they are and how they bond. - Author: Tamsin Egerton
Camelot quotes by Tamsin Egerton
#33. And yet knowing all these mistakes were yours, beautifully yours, and you came out the better for it... the boy I left behind well on his way to becoming an extraordinary man and an extraordinary king." Merlin smiled. "If only from your choice of princess alone. - Author: Soman Chainani
Camelot quotes by Soman Chainani
#34. Camelot is a silly place. - Author: Graham Chapman
Camelot quotes by Graham Chapman
#35. The world is an ambitious business. It continuously expands and evolves. But people are lazy and God is far too lovely to do something about it. - Author: Stefan Emunds
Camelot quotes by Stefan Emunds
#36. To many-towered Camelot - Author: Alfred Tennyson
Camelot quotes by Alfred Tennyson
#37. Unless we change our ways and our direction, our greatness as a nation will soon be a footnote in the history books, a distant memory of an offshore island, lost in the mist of time like Camelot, remembered kindly for its noble past. - Author: Margaret Thatcher
Camelot quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#38. Don't let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief shining moment, that was known as Camelot. - Author: Alan Jay Lerner
Camelot quotes by Alan Jay Lerner
#39. The winter is forbidden till December, And exits March the second on the dot. By order summer lingers through September In Camelot. - Author: Alan Jay Lerner
Camelot quotes by Alan Jay Lerner
#40. Of course, history is only a muddle of facts and a fuddle of professors, and anyone who thinks it is one clear voice saying "Arise, sir Knight" deserves a life sentence in Camelot. - Author: Wilfrid Sheed
Camelot quotes by Wilfrid Sheed
#41. Merlin Speaks:
Ô mighty trees of Avalon
release sap and seeds
into hearts and minds

So Arthur's dream
can reveal echoes
of futures past

So Camelot's glory
is forever ingrained
in the rich forests
and mountains' mysterious valleys
where a once and future King
lowered his sword
and lay in the arms
of his sweet Lady of Forests and Lakes - Author: Ramon Ravenswood
Camelot quotes by Ramon Ravenswood
#42. Waiting for one's execution is worse than dying. To seek my beheading is glory. Who went to his execution willingly? Jesus did. Jesus even dragged his cross half way to Golgotha. I think he would have nailed himself to the cross if he had to. - Author: Stefan Emunds
Camelot quotes by Stefan Emunds
#43. The Fugitive"

Thanks be to God the world is wide,
And I am going far from home,
For I forgot in Camelot
The man I loved in Rome,

And I forgot in Kensington
The man I loved in Kew;
And there must be a place for me
To think no more of you. - Author: Edna St. Vincent Millay
Camelot quotes by Edna St. Vincent Millay
#44. And, the sets that they built are just so beautiful. It's like going to a completely foreign country and experiencing a new culture that you've never seen before, especially at Camelot. It's just so magical. Personally, it's just so much more interesting than wearing jeans and a t-shirt, and walking around somebody else's house. - Author: Tamsin Egerton
Camelot quotes by Tamsin Egerton
#45. What's to rationalize? You mean you shouldn't pray if you haven't got your s
t together? This is another fairly common misconception of faith, which is that people who go to church, or people who pray, or people who talk about their religion must be, somehow more pious or ethically rigorous or have more morally cleansed lifestyle. The high correlation is supposed to be between faith and your search, the depth of your search, your willingness to try, your willingness to admit error, your hope and belief in the ultimate meaning and value of that search.' - Timothy Shriver - Author: J. Randy Taraborrelli
Camelot quotes by J. Randy Taraborrelli
#46. I swear I will never trust Edward again. This is not kingly, this is not as Arthur of Camelot. This is behaviour as base as an archer's bastard and I cannot meet his eyes when I see him stuffing his mouth at King Louis' table and pocketing the gold forks. - Author: Philippa Gregory
Camelot quotes by Philippa Gregory
#47. Willows whiten, aspens quiver, Little breezes dusk and shiver. - Author: Alfred Lord Tennyson
Camelot quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#48. 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
Camelot quotes by Thomas Malory
#49. The "man of Christ" knows that the collapse of systems is always preceded by the collapse of individuals. Camelot began to give way to the world the moment Lancelot and Guinevere gave way to their appetites. - Author: Neal A. Maxwell
Camelot quotes by Neal A. Maxwell
#50. 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
Camelot quotes by Colin Morgan
#51. Television should be our Lyceum, our Chautauqua, our Minsky's and our Camelot. - Author: E.B. White
Camelot quotes by E.B. White
#52. Nefertiti Speaks:
Sands of time released my ancient image
to awaken you to the artistry and splendour
of Egypt's Camelot

No mystery am I
A modern woman trapped in an old time

Go forward beautiful ladies and create
new worlds of artistry and beauty
out of the sands of time - Author: Ramon Ravenswood
Camelot quotes by Ramon Ravenswood
#53. We must not play as gods of the world. - Author: Kathryn Rose
Camelot quotes by Kathryn Rose
