"Make we our covenant, ere we go further. First, I ask thee, knight, thy name. Tell me truly, that I may know thee."

"By the help of heaven I was true to my covenant, true to my king, and true to my host; but in this I faulted, that I was not true to myself."

"This is the bond of my blame that I bear in my neck, this is the harm and the loss I have suffered, the Cowardice and the Covetousness in which I was caught, the token of the covenant in which I was taken."

"My sword shall be bathed in heaven!"
