30 Knights and Ladies Quotes from Literature

He caught the fancy of the king, knelt down a grub, and rose a butterfly. ~ Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens "The age of chivalry is past," said Miss Dacre. "Bores have succeeded to dragons." ~ The Young Duke by Benjamin Disraeli "Chivalry!---why, maiden, she is the nurse of pure and high affection---the stay of the oppressed, the redresser of grievances, the curb of the power of the tyrant ---Nobility were but an empty name without her, and liberty finds the best protection in her lance and her sword." ~ Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott "What remains?" cried Ivanhoe; "Glory, maiden, glory! which gilds our sepulchre and embalms our name." ~ Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott "Nay," said she, "the saints in Heaven cannot help me now until they take me to my rest. There is no place for me in the world beyond, and all my friends were slain on the day I was taken. Leave me, brave men, and let me care for myself. Already it lightens in the east, and black will be your fate if you are taken. Go, and may the blessing of one who was once a holy nun go with you and guard you from danger." ~ Sir Nigel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Between these two there lay a broad zone comprising all the centre of the country which was a land of blood and violence, where no law prevailed save that of the sword. ~ Sir Nigel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle She stood framed in the doorway, tall, mystic, silent, with strange, wistful face and deep soul shining in her dark questioning eyes. Nigel kissed the hand that she held out, and all his faith in woman and his reverence came back to him as he looked at her. ~ Sir Nigel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Nigel looked at her with sparkling eyes. The soul which shone through her dark face had transformed it for the moment into a beauty, more lofty and more rare than that of her shallow sister. He bowed before the majesty of the woman, and pressed his lips to her hand. ~ Sir Nigel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle A wave of panic passed over the vessel, and these rough and hardy men, who feared no mortal foe, shook with terror at the shadows of their own minds. ~ Sir Nigel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle "Listen to me while I lay a curse upon you and yours!" she cries, as she raised her shriveled arms and blighted him with her flashing eyes: "As you have done to the house of Loring, so may God do to you, until your power is swept from the land of England, and of your great Abbey of Waverley there is nothing left but a pile of grey stones in a green meadow! I see it! With my old eyes I see it! From scullion to abbot and from cellar to tower, may Waverley and all within it droop and wither from this night on!" ~ Sir Nigel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
