Quotes from the Movie Braveheart

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

I should have remembered the rocks.


That'll wake you up in the mornin' boy!


I've lived long enough to live free; proud to see you become the man you are. I'm a happy man.


I hope your husband goes to Scotland and meets Wallace and then you'll be a widow.


I can't hear, but it doesn't look good. The nobles will negotiate. If they do a deal, then we go home. And if not, we charge.


I know it is hard. Being a leader is. Now son, son, look at me. I can not be king. You, and you alone can rule Scotland. What I tell you, you must do. Not for me, not for yourself, but for your country.

Robert Bruce, Sr
