Quotes from the Movie Braveheart

Oh, it's perfect Scottish weather, madam. The rain is fallin' straight down, well slightly to the side like.

William Wallace

Go back to England and tell them there that Scotland's daughters and sons are yours no more! Tell them Scotland is free!

William Wallace

Go back to England and tell them there that Scotland's daughters and sons are yours no more! Tell them Scotland is free!

William Wallace

I'm so afraid. Lord, give me the strength to die well.

William Wallace

In the year of our Lord, 1314, patriots of Scotland, starving and outnumbered, charged the fields of Bannockburn. They fought like warrior poets. They fought like Scotsmen. And won their freedom.

William Wallace

You have come to fight as free men, and free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you fight? 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 never take our freedom!

William Wallace

Sure didn't the Almighty send me to watch your back? I didn't like him anyway. He wasn't right in the head.

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 f***ing question.'

Stephen

The Almighty tells me he can get me out of this mess, but he's pretty sure you're f***ed.

Stephen

Scotland, my land. The French will grovel to anyone with strength, but how will they believe our strength when we can not rule the whole of our own island?

King Edward Longshanks

In the morning, I depart for France to press our rights there, and I leave you here to quell this little rebellion, understood? Is it? One day you will be a king. At least try to act like one.

King Edward Longshanks

I heard word in France where I was fighting to expand your future kingdom. The word, my son, is that our entire Northern Army is annihilated.

King Edward Longshanks

Who is this person that speaks to me as though I needed his advice?

King Edward Longshanks

I shall offer a truce and buy him off. But who will go to him? Not I. If I fell under the sword of that murderer, that might be my head in a basket. And not my gentle son. The mere sight of him would only encourage the enemy to take over the whole country. So whom do I send? Whom do I send?

King Edward Longshanks

Not the archers. My scouts tell me their archers are miles away and no threat to us. Arrows cost money. Use up the Irish. Their dead cost nothing.

King Edward Longshanks

Bring me Wallace. Alive if possible, dead... just as good.

King Edward Longshanks

I shall tell you of William Wallace. Historians from England will say that 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 pagan known as Edward the Longshanks, claimed the throne for himself. Scotlandís 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 Malcolm Wallace, a commoner, with his own lands. He had two sons: John and William.

Robert the Bruce

Many years later, Edward the Longshanks, King of England, supervised the wedding of his eldest son, who would succeed him to the throne. As bride for his son, Longshanks had chosen the daughter of his rival, the King of France. It was widely whispered that for the princess to conceive, Longshanks would have to do the honors himself. That may have been what he had in mind all along.

Robert the Bruce

After the beheading, William Wallace's body was torn to pieces. His head was set on London bridge. His arms and legs, sent to the four corners of Britain as warning. It did not have the effect that Longshanks planned. And I, Robert the Bruce, rode out to pay homage to the armies of the English King, and accept his endorsement of my crown.

Robert the Bruce

You have bled with Wallace, now bleed with me.

Robert the Bruce

They are saying goodbye in their own way. Playing outlawed tunes on outlawed pipes. It was the same for me and your daddy, when our father was killed.

Argyle Wallace

First, learn to use this. Then I will teach you to use this [holds up his sword].

Argyle Wallace

William, I am your uncle, Argyle. You have the look of your mother.

Uncle Argyle

Your heart is free. Have the courage to follow her.

Malcolm Wallace
