Quotes from the Movie Kingdom of Heaven

You are not what you were born, but what you have it in yourself to be.

Godfrey of Ibelin

I once fought two days with an arrow through my testicle.

Godfrey of Ibelin

A new world. A better world. A kingdom of conscience...a kingdom of heaven.

Godfrey of Ibelin

Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright, that God may love thee. Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong; that is your oath. And that is so you remember it. Rise a knight... rise a knight!

Godfrey of Ibelin

If you ever want to find Jerusalem, go to where the men speak Italian, then continue until they speak something else.

Godfrey of Ibelin

What man is a man who does not make the world better?

Balian of Ibelin

A queen never walks. And yet you are walking.

Balian of Ibelin

How can you be in hell, when you are in my heart?

Balian of Ibelin

If we do not burn these bodies, we will all be dead of disease in three days. God will understand, my lord. And if he doesn't, then he is not God and we need not worry.

Balian of Ibelin

They are here.

Balian of Ibelin

If the ribs are broken, the marrow will enter the blood and you will develop fever and die or a cyst will form and you will live.

Holiness is in right action, and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves.

Hospitaller

You sail now for Jerusalem as your father wished. If God has purpose for you there, he'll keep you safe in his hands. If not, God bless.

Hospitaller

I put no stock in religion. By the word religion I have seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the will of god. Holiness is in right action, and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves, and goodness. What God desires is here and here and what you decide to do every day will make you a good man...or not.

Hospitaller

Come forward. I am glad to meet Godfrey's son. He was one of my greatest teachers. He was there when, playing with the other boys, my arm was cut. It was he, not my father's physicians who noticed that I felt no pain. He wept when he gave my father the news, that I am a leper. The Saracens say that this disease is God's vengeance against the vanity of our kingdom. As wretched as I am, these Arabs believe that the chastisement that awaits me in hell is far more severe and lasting. If that's true, I call it unfair. Come. Sit. When I was sixteen I won a great victory. I felt in that moment that I should live to be one hundred, now I know I shall not see thirty. You see, none of us chose our end really. A king may move a man, a father may claim a son. But remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say "but I was told by others to do thus" or that "virtue was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice. Remember that.

King Baldwin IV
