Gary Oldman is one of my heroes, I did nothing but glean from him. #Quote by Tom Hardy

Knights And Samurai quotes by Julie Ann Walker
#9. Sugar. He'd taken to calling her that. She wasn't sure if she should be flattered or irritated. She certainly didn't feel like sugar, not today. Today, she felt far too...unmoored to be something as fine and delicate as sugar.

Syrup, maybe. All messy and sticky and slow moving.

Yeah, she could probably go along with being called syrup. #Quote by Julie Ann Walker
Knights And Samurai quotes by Julie Ann Walker
#10. Mac noticed her body's reaction. Even in the dimly lit room, she saw his pupils dilate. And when he licked his lips, those deceivingly sift lips? Well it took everything she had to shimmy up his body like an electric worker shimmies up a pole. #Quote by Julie Ann Walker
Knights And Samurai quotes by Guy L. Pace
#11. So the monks and the samurai all had something with the three-pronged fork symbol," Paul said as they bounced in the back of Ricky's truck. "And they all move and work in threes. So how is the Adversary tracking us?"
"You mean tracking you," Cody said, laughing. "We Indians just blend into the background, en'it? #Quote by Guy L. Pace

Knights And Samurai quotes by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra
#14. All of that is true,' responded Don Quixote, 'but we cannot all be friars, and God brings His children to heaven by many paths: chivalry is a religion, and there are sainted knights in Glory.'

Yes,' responded Sancho, 'but I've heard that there are more friars in heaven than knights errant.'

That is true,' responded Don Quixote, 'because the number of religious is greater than the number of knights.'

There are many who are errant,' said Sancho.

Many,' responded Don Quixote, 'but few who deserve to be called knights. #Quote by Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra

Knights And Samurai quotes by Mary Oliver
#16. Intellectual work sometimes, spiritual work certainly, artistic work always - these are forces that fall within its grasp, forces that must travel beyond the realm of the hour and the restraint of the habit. Nor can the actual work be well separated from the entire life. Like the knights of the Middle Ages, there is little the creatively inclined person can do but to prepare himself, body and spirit, for the labor to come - for his adventures are all unknown. In truth, the work itself is the adventure. And no artist could go about this work, or would want to, with less than extraordinary energy and concentration. The extraordinary is what art is about. #Quote by Mary Oliver
Knights And Samurai quotes by George R R Martin
#17. Father asked if there were any knights in the hall who would do honor to their houses by taking the black, but no one came forward, so he gave this Yoren his pick of the king's dungeons and sent him on his way. And later these two brothers came before him, freeriders from the Dornish Marches, and pledged their swords to the service of the king. Father accepted their oaths ... '
Jeyne yawned. 'Are there any lemon cakes? #Quote by George R R Martin
Knights And Samurai quotes by Enson Inoue
#18. It's actually the samurai spirit, which is 'no fear and never give up. #Quote by Enson Inoue
Knights And Samurai quotes by Holly Black
#19. It is at that unfortunate moment that one of the knights stops me.
"You. Mortal girl in the mask," he says. "You smell like blood."
I turn. Frustrated and desperate as I am, I blurt out the first thing that comes to me. "Well, I am mortal. And a girl, sir. We bleed every month, just like moon swells. #Quote by Holly Black
Knights And Samurai quotes by Melody Beattie
#20. There are no knights on white horses, no magical grandmothers in the sky watching, waiting to rescue us. Teachers may come our way, but they will not rescue. They will teach. People who care will come, but they will not rescue. They will care. Help will come, but help is not rescuing. We are our own rescuers. Our relationships will improve dramatically when we stop rescuing others and stop expecting them to rescue us. #Quote by Melody Beattie
Knights And Samurai quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#21. Love as a passion - it is our European specialty - must absolutely be of noble origin; as is well known, its invention is due to the Provencal poet-cavaliers, those brilliant, ingenious men of the "gai saber," to whom Europe owes so much, and almost owes itself. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Knights And Samurai quotes by Simon Sebag Montefiore
#22. The Bolsheviks were atheists but they were hardly secular politicians in the conventional sense: they stooped to kill from the smugness of the highest moral eminence. Bolshevism may not have been a religion, but it was close enough. Stalin told Beria the Bolsheviks were "a sort of military-religious order." When Dzerzhinsky, founder of the Cheka, died, Stalin called him "a devout knight of the proletariat." Stalin's "order of sword-bearers" resembled the Knights Templars, or even the theocracy of the Iranian Ayatollahs, more than any traditional secular movement. They would die and kill for their faith in the inevitable progress towards human betterment, making sacrifices of their own families, with a fervour seen only in the religious slaughters and martyrdoms of the Middle Ages - and the Middle East. They #Quote by Simon Sebag Montefiore
Knights And Samurai quotes by Herman Melville
#23. In old England the greatest lords think it great glory to be slapped by a queen, and made garter-knights of; but, be your boast, Stubb, that ye were kicked by old Ahab, and made a wise man of. Remember what I say; be kicked by him; account his kicks honors; and on no account kick back; for you can't help yourself, wise Stubb. #Quote by Herman Melville
Knights And Samurai quotes by Bernard Law Montgomery
#24. A Marine should be sworn to the patient endurance of hardships, like the ancient knights; and it is not the least of these necessary hardships to have to serve with sailors. #Quote by Bernard Law Montgomery
Knights And Samurai quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#25. The most important words a man can say are, "I will do better." These are not the most important words any man can say. I am a man, and they are what I needed to say.

The ancient code of the Knights Radiant says "journey before destination." Some may call it a simple platitude, but it is far more. A journey will have pain and failure. It is not only the steps forward that we must accept. It is the stumbles. The trials. The knowledge that we will fail. That we will hurt those around us.

But if we stop, if we accept the person we are when we fall, the journey ends. That failure becomes our destination. To love the journey is to accept no such end. I have found, through painful experience, that the most important step a person can take is always the next one.

I'm certain some will feel threatened by this record. Some few may feel liberated. Most will simply feel that it should not exist. I needed to write it anyway. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Knights And Samurai quotes by Okakura Kakuzo
#26. For instance, in one play the palace of Lord Hosokawa, in which was preserved the celebrated painting of Dharuma by Sesson, suddenly takes fire through the negligence of the samurai in charge. Resolved at all hazards to rescue the precious painting, he rushes into the burning building and seizes the kakemono, only to find all means of exit cut off by the flames. Thinking only of the picture, he slashes open his body with his sword, wraps his torn sleeve about the Sesson and plunges it into the gaping wound. The fire is at last extinguished. Among the smoking embers is found a half- consumed corpse, within which reposes the treasure uninjured by the fire. Horrible as such tales are, they illustrate the great value that we set upon a masterpiece, as well as the devotion of a trusted samurai. #Quote by Okakura Kakuzo
Knights And Samurai quotes by Mark Morford
#27. Metal is made up of many silly cliches, and Dio's songs rarely shied away from a good cheeseball lyric about medieval knights and crystal balls. But the amazing thing is, Dio the man never succumbed to the typical ravages of drugs, booze or hideous all-body tattoos. He never gained 75 pounds later in life or lost most of his voice through merciless shredding and ended it all playing county fairs for 19 drunk dudes in a barn before collapsing in a heap in a motel room in Jersey. There's a lesson in there somewhere. Or everywhere. #Quote by Mark Morford
Knights And Samurai quotes by George R R Martin
#28. If this is true, how is it no one knows?" "The knights of the Kingsguard are sworn to keep the king's secrets. Would you have me break my oath?" Jaime laughed. "Do you think the noble Lord of Winterfell wanted to hear my feeble explanations? Such an honorable man. He only had to look at me to judge me guilty." Jaime lurched to his feet, the water running cold down his chest. "By what right does the wolf judge the lion? By what right?" A violent shiver took him, and he smashed his stump against the rim of the tub as he tried to climb out. #Quote by George R R Martin
Knights And Samurai quotes by George R R Martin
#29. Lords are gold and knights steel, but two links can't make a chain. You also need silver and iron and lead, tin and copper and bronze and all the rest, and those are farmers and smiths and merchants and the like. A chain needs all sorts of metals, and a land needs all sorts of people. #Quote by George R R Martin
Knights And Samurai quotes by Phil Knight
#30. Nike is a marketing-oriented company, and the product is our most important marketing tool #Quote by Phil Knight
Knights And Samurai quotes by Paul A.M. Dirac
#31. When you ask what are electrons and protons I ought to answer that this question is not a profitable one to ask and does not really have a meaning. The important thing about electrons and protons is not what they are but how they behave, how they move. I can describe the situation by comparing it to the game of chess. In chess, we have various chessmen, kings, knights, pawns and so on. If you ask what chessman is, the answer would be that it is a piece of wood, or a piece of ivory, or perhaps just a sign written on paper, or anything whatever. It does not matter. Each chessman has a characteristic way of moving and this is all that matters about it. The whole game os chess follows from this way of moving the various chessmen. #Quote by Paul A.M. Dirac
Knights And Samurai quotes by Orlando Bloom
#32. I have played a boxer, a cowboy, a knight, a prince, an elf and a pirate. I am so glad to have done all of that already. #Quote by Orlando Bloom
Knights And Samurai quotes by Renee Ahdieh
#33. Bushidō is about experiencing life in every breath. Seeing life in the simplest of things. There is beauty and honor in that. #Quote by Renee Ahdieh
Knights And Samurai quotes by Takashi Matsuoka
#34. She looked down and saw Genji on his warhorse, and it was he who was out of place, not herself. The incongruity of a samurai in her orchard made her laugh.
Her own laughter brought her back.
Coming back, she began to weep.
"My home was in Apple Valley," Emily said. "Another Apple Valley."
After a time, Genji said, "This place was yours before you ever saw it. #Quote by Takashi Matsuoka
