Steven: "The Lord tells me he can get me out of this mess, but he's pretty sure you're ****ed"

Wallace (As he is talking to the commander of an army that outnumbers his three to one) :"Hear Scotland's terms,.... Lower your flags, march straight back to England stopping at every home you pass by to beg forgiveness for one hundred years of theft rape and murder. Do that, and your men shall live, do it not, and every one of you will die today."
The Scarlet Chevron:"Ha ha ha you are outmuched, you have no heavy cavelry, in two centerys no army has won withou...."
Wallace: I'M NOT FINISHED!! before we let you leave, your commander must cross that field, present himself before this army, put his head between his legs, and kiss his own arse."

Braveheart Quotes

Wow looks like you've got quite the War Movie Quotes site here.
for me. Braveheart is my all time favorite movie. I have posters
and even printed off the Movie Script. here are a few of my favorite
quotes and sayings:

William (narrating):
"in the year of our Lord 1314, patriots of Scotland,
starving and outnumbered, charged the fields at
Bannockburn. They fought like warrior poets. They
Fought like Scotsmen. And won their freedom."

Robert the Bruce (narrator):
"I shall tell you of William Wallace. Historians
from england will say I am a liar, but history
is written by those who have hanged heroes.
The king of scotland had died without a son,
and the King of England, a cruel pagon know
as Edward the Longshanks, claimed the
throne of Scotland for himself. Scotland's
nobles fought him, and fought each other
over the crown. So longshanks invited them
to talks of truce, no weapons, one page only
Among the farmers of that shire was Malcom
Wallace, a commoner with his own Lands.
He had who sons: John and William."

Willaim: I don't want to leave.
Argyle: you didnt want your father to die either, did ya? but it happened."

Dead Malcom: Your heart is free. Have the courage to follow her.

Argyle: First, Learn to use this (taps William's forehead), then i'll teach
you to use this (Argyle lifts the sword).

William: You Dropped your Rock.
Hamish: Test of Manhood.
William: You win
Hamish: Call it a test of soldiery, then. English won't let us train with
weapons, so we train with stones.
William: Well, a test of soldier is not in the arm, it's here (points to head)
Hamish: No, it's here (points to arm and punches william)
Willaim: Hamish?
Hamish: Mm-hmm (winks a william)

Hamish: I could crush you like a worm.

William: Oui. Parce que chaque jour j'ai pense a toi. (yes because ever
single day I thought about you.)

Murron: do that standing on your head and i'll be impressed.
William: My kilt will fly up but i'll try.
Murron: You certainly didnt learn any manners on your travels.

Lord Bottoms: I have dispatched 100 soldiers to Lanark. They will be
returning now.
William: Were they dressed like this? Actualy it was more like 50.

William: we'll make spears Hundreds of them. Long spears. Twice as long
as a man.
Hamish: That long?
William: Aye.
Hamish: Some men are longer than others.
Cambell: Your mother been telling stories about me again. Ah?
(they laugh)

Stephen: Alright Father, I'll ask him. If I risk my neck for you, Will I get
a chance to kill Englishmen?
Hamish: is your father a ghost or do you converse with the Almighty?
Stephen: In order to find his equal, an Irishman is forced to talk to God.
Yes Father. The Almighty says don't change the subject, just
answer the ****ing question.

Stephen: Execellent. Stephen is my name. I'm the most wanted man on
my Island, except im not on my Island, of course. More's the
Hamish: Your Island? uou mean Ireland.
Stephen: Yeah. It's mine (grinning broadly)
Hamish: You're a madman.
Stephen: i'v come to the right place, then.

Stephen: didnt the Almighty send me to watch your back? I didnt like him
anyway. He wasn't Right.. in the head.

Hamish: Where are you going?
William: i'm going to pick a fight.

William: Sons of Scotland, I am William Wallace.
Young soldier: William Wallace is seven feet tall.
William: Yes, I've heard. He kills men by the hundreds, and if he were
here he'd consume the English with fireballs from his eyes and
bolts of lightning from his arse.
Crowed: (laugh)
William: I am william wallace, and I see a whole army of my countrymen
here in defiance of tyranny. You have come to fight as free men
,and free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will
you fight?
Soldier: Fight against that? No, we will run and we will live.
William: Aye, fight and you may die, run and you'll live. at least a while.
and dying in your beds many years from now, would you be
willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance,
just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that they
may take our lives, but they'll naever take our Freedom?!
Alba gu brath! (Scotland Forever!)

Craig: Gentelmen! Please, Gentelmen! Wait! Sir William, where are you
William: We have beaten the English, but they'll come back because you
wont stand together.
Craig: Well what will you do?
William: We'll invade England and defeat the English on their own ground.
Craig: (laughs) Invade? That's Impossible.
William: Why? Why is that impossible? You're so concerned with
squabbling fro the scraps from Longshank's table that you've
missed your God-given right to something better. There's a
difference between us. You think the people of this country exist
to provide you with position. I think your position exists to
provide those people with freedom. And I go to make sure they
have it.

William: Men dont follow titles, they follow courage. Now our people know
you. Noble, and common, they respect you. And if you would
just lead them to freedom, they'd follow you. And so would I.

Hamish: What the hell are the Irish doing fighting with the English?
Stephen: I wouldn't worry about them. Didn't I tell you before, It's
my Island.
William: Your Island?
Stephen: (proudly smiling) My Island! Yup!

Longshanks: The problem with Scotland is it's full of Scotts.

Robert the Bruce: You Have bled with Wallace, now Bleed with me.
Craig: Ah!
(Hamish drops his axe, and pulls out wallace's sword. stepping forward, he screams and throws william's sword out into the field. it stabs into the earth, standing like a cross. Robert the Bruce draws his sword.)

Well hope you enjoyed these many quotes. If any of you has not seen Braveheart. I urge you to go out and BUY it now. not rent it. BUY it. it's an all time keeper. take care everyone.


It wasn't ALL boolox ok half was tales but not all bollox..........

I watched the batte scenes when they filmed them up by inverness when i was little.............

Tell ya 1 thing mel gibson was ok with the accent lol
Good movie. You're right, Anya (Shit, did _I_ say that? LOL) it was only half bollocks. The part that pissed me off was making Robert the Bruce into a two-faced traitor. Bad enough to make untruths and half-truths but to slander the Bruce was just wrong!
My cousin is related to William Wallace, he's my cousin's great great uncle. Patrick Wallace is my cousins name.
thank you for that cadet I feel better knowing that you are supposedly related to William Wallace. Thanks for letting us know, so now when I get older I can tell my grandchildren that I once joined a forum that included an alleged ancestor of William Wallace! You know, scientists say that 1 in every 200 men on this planet is related to Genghis Khan, but you don't hear them barking their worth. Listen, the world will go on if you die tomorrow, and the people who remember your lineage will soon be dust. As with mine, as with everyones. So, maybe instead of flaunting your ego you stick to what this website was created for - The men and women who have so gracious and mercilessly given all of us war fanatics something to write about - not their relatives.
Hmmmm.. somebody needs a nap... However, I don't think that a Great Great Uncle quite gets you back to the 1290's early 1300's...

Personally I loved the movie - made a good story even if the author never bothered to check a history book before writing it.
Stephen: Stephen is my name. I the most wanted man on my island, except I'm not on my island, of course. More's the pity.
Hamish: "Your island"? You mean Ireland?
Stephen: Yeah. It's mine.
Hamish: You're a madman.
Stephen: [nods and starts laughing, then Hamish does as well] I've come to the right place, then.

History Channel did a show on Braveheart. When it started with the film maker saying he wouldn't let the facts get in the way of a good story.....

Recommended reading..
This looks like the copy which I read, but I sold it off in the '80s more's the pity sigh...

Personally, I doubt that black blood really spurted from the head of Mr. C as he came roaring out of the stream, because eventually he would have run out of blood. But you never know with old folk tales...
For those who do not want to read the entire book, it centers around a squabble over whose bull is better, who can fight harder, who can outwit whom, etc...

One of my favorite "hero" movies. When they all show their arses to the foe. I kinda like the Bruce guy too. Good at heart.
But, of when Wallace picks up the fabric he had given to his lovely wife, after she was murdered, keeps it. That's after he kills her murderer, when it's in the dried bluid.
In the end, when he is being drawn and quartered, musters up the energy to throat out "FREEDOM"! Then drops the embroidered handkerchief that she so lovingly and freely made for him...OMG! That's an open mouth cry for me! I say that line so often.
Makes me want to go to Scotland one day- see the the country, the strong people. Not the " usual tour". We'll get there too. Any comments on that? Because we are Americans. Different though. I "heard" through folks that the Scots... just rumor... don't like us.
