King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table Quote I

'Damsel,' answered Beaumains politely, 'you may say to me what you wish, but never will I turn back. For I have promised King Arthur to undertake your adventure—and achieve it I will, or die in the attempt.'
'You'll achieve my adventure, will you!' jeered Linnet. 'Why, before long you will meet with such an adversary that you'll give all the broth in Camelot to be allowed to go back to your kitchen alive!'
'That we shall see,' answered Beaumains quietly, and they rode on in silence, the Lady Linnet a little way in front.

Inkspell Quote I

Remember by Christina Georgina Rossetti

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann'd:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

Confucius Quote I

When you know a thing, to hold that you know it; and when you do not know a thing, to allow that you do not know it--this is knowledge.
