“writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. we are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. it's like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. you can't stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship.”

First Knight favorite quote
Arthur: Do you love him?
Arthur: How did I fail you?
Guinevere: You've never failed me, My Lord.
Arthur: I saw your face as you kissed him.
Guinevere: Love has many faces. I look on you differently, but not with less love.
Arthur: When a woman loves two men, she must choose between them.
Guinevere: I choose you.
Arthur:Your will chooses me. Your heart chooses him.
Guinevere: My will is stronger than my heart. Do you think I put so high a price on my feelings? They'll pass. My will holds me to my course through life.
Arthur: As mine does me, and yet, all I have to do is look at you and everything I ever believed in fades to nothing. All I want is your love.
Guinevere: You have it.
Arthur: Do I? Then look on me as you looked on him.
Guinevere: I gave one moment to Lancelot.
Arthur: Yes, you're innocent. But you love him! Any more of this innocence and I'll go mad.
Guinevere: I'll do whatever you tell me to.
Arthur: I don't know what to think. I no longer see my way ahead. Only fools dream of the one thing they can't have.
Guinevere: Forgive me.
Arthur: What's to forgive? I dreamed the dream of you. It was a sweet dream...... while it lasted.
