William Wallace:
I give homage to Scotland; and if this is your army, then why does it go?

We didn’t come here to fight for them.

Young Soldier:
To home! The English are too many!

William Wallace:
Sons of Scotland; I am William Wallace.

Young Soldier:
William Wallace is seven feet tall!

William Wallace:
Yes, I’ve heard; he kills men by the hundreds.
And if he were here, he’d consume the English with fireballs from his eyes,
and bolts of lightning from his arse.
[the Scots laugh]
I am William Wallace!
And I see a whole army of my country men here in defiance of tyranny.
You’ve come to fight as free men, and free men you are.
But what will you do with that freedom? Will you fight?

Fight? Against that? No, we will run. And we will live.

William Wallace:
Aye. Fight and you may die.
Run, and you’ll 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!
Alba gu bràth! ("Scotland until judgment" or "Scotland forever")

Mornay, Lochlan, Craig, here are the king’s terms...
Lead this army off field and he will give you each estates in Yorkshire,
including hereditary title, from which you will pay him an annual duty.

William Wallace:
I have an offer for you.

Cheltham, this is William Wallace.

...from which you will pay the king an annual duty...

William Wallace:
I said I have an offer for you.

You disrespect a banner of truce?

William Wallace:
From his king? Absolutely. Here are Scotland’s terms.
Lower your flags, and march straight back to England,
stopping at every home you pass by to beg forgiveness
for a hundred years of theft, rape, and murder.
Do that and your men shall live.
Do it not, and every one of you will die today.

Cheltham: [laughs]
You are outmatched. You have no heavy cavalry.
In two centuries no army has won without...

William Wallace:
I’m not finished!
Before we let you leave, your commander must cross that field,
present himself before this army, put his head between his legs,
and kiss his own arse.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We don't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children
what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

"But what do we mean by the American Revolution?
Do we mean the American war?
The Revolution was effected before the war commenced.
The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people;
a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations.
That was the real American Revolution."
~John Adams 1818
"Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women.
When it dies there, no constitution, no law, and no court can save it."
~Judge Learned Hand
My father sailed on two oceans in the Merchant Marines during WWII from 8/1942-9/1945.
He did not meet the classification of a "veteran".
I served in the National Guard / Army Reserves from 1971-1977.
I also do not meet the classification of a "veteran".

Notice: The daily sport of posting Catholic bashing threads on FR stops today.
Trashing religion is not debate.
