Hospitaler's Memorable Quotes:
Hospitaler
I put no stock in religion. By the word religion I have seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the will of god. I have seen too much religion in the eyes of too many murderers. Holiness is in right action, and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves, and goodness. What god desires is here

[points to head]

and here

[points to heart]

and what you decide to do every day, you will be a good man - or not.

Balian
One may stare into the light, until one becomes the light. I've done it many times.

[throws a rock at a bush that catches fire by the spark]

There's your religion. One spark, a creosote bush. There's your Moses. I did not hear it speak.That does not mean that there is no God. Do you love her?Yes.The heart will mend. Your duty is to the people of the city. I go to pray.For what?For the strength to endure what is to come.And what is to come?The reckoning is to come for what was done one hundred years before. The Muslims will never forget. Nor should they.

[the Hospitaler slowly walks away as a second bush several yards from the burning one catches fire. The Hospitaler is nowhere to be seen in the clear and open desert]

If the ribs are broken, the marrow will enter the blood and you will develop fever and die or a cyst will form and you will live.

Are you sorry for all your sins?

For all but one.

Godfrey

[Approaching the village where Balian lives]

You know this place, my lord?Know it? I know all of it.
Hospitaler
Godfrey
The blacksmith is the man you seek. His name is Balian. But know that he mourns. The burial that we passed at the crossroads was for his wife. Their child died. She was overcome by grief and killed herself.Do you still advise what you advised upon the road?I do, my lord.
Tiberias
Hospitaler
But Saladin and the king between them would make a better world.If it lives only for a while, Tiberias, it still has lived.
Godfrey
Hospitaler
Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright that God may love thee. Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong. That is your oath.

[cuffs Balian with the back of his hand]

And that's so you remember it.Arise a knight and Baron of Ibelin.
Hospitaler
Godfrey
Guy de Lusignan

[while tending to Godfrey's wounds]

When shall we stop this madness?It will soon be beyond my concern.

[Guy de Lusignan and his knights walk over to the campsite]

[pointing at Balian] Who is this?My son.Would I had fought you when you were still capable of making bastards.

[he laughs]

I knew your mother when she was making hers. Fortunately, you're too old to be one of mine.[Guy laughs again] All will be settled.
Hospitaler
[to Balian] You sail now for Jerusalem as your father wished. If God has purpose for you there, he'll keep you safe in his hands.

[pauses]

If not, God bless you.
Hospitaler
Balian

[while watching the public execution of some Templars in Jerusalem]

The king has made a peace with Saladin these past six years. He holds Jerusalem as a place of prayer for all faiths, as the Muslims did before we came. These men are Templars. They killed Arabs.So they are dying for what the Pope would command them to do.Yes... but not Christ, I think. Nor this king.
