King Arthur: I can't quite remember all that Merlyn taught me, but I do remember this. That happiness is a virtue. No one can be happy and wicked. Triumphant, perhaps, but not happy.
King Arthur as a Boy: What's the best thing for being sad?
Merlyn: The best thing for being sad is to learn something.
King Arthur: Merlyn told me once, "Never be too disturbed if you don't understand what a woman is thinking. They don't do it very often."
King Arthur: Proposition. Right or wrong. They have the might. So, right or wrong. They're always right. That's wrong. Right?
King Arthur: But even the thought, "I'm not thinking a thought" is thinking, isn't it?
Merlyn: Yes, and thinking is the sort of thing you should get into the habit of doing as often as possible.
King Arthur: Proposition. It is far better to be alive than dead.
King Arthur: Proposition. If I could choose from every woman who breathes on this earth, the face I would most love, the smile, the touch, the heart, the voice, the laugh, the soul, itself, every detail and feature to the last strand of the hair, they would all be Ginny's.
King Arthur: By God, I shall be a king. This is the time of King Arthur. When we shall - reach for the stars! This is the time of King Arthur when violence is not strength and compassion is not weakness.
Mordred: I like my women married, my willpower weak, my wine strong, and my saints fallen.
