kings Quotes

Three of the best book quotes about kings
  1. #1
    Gil-galad was an Elven-king.
    Of him the harpers sadly sing:
    The last whose realm was fair and free
    Between the Mountains and the Sea.
    His sword was long, his lance was keen,
    His shining helm afar was seen;
    The countless stars of heaven’s field
    Were mirrored in his silver shield.
    But long ago he rode away,
    And where he dwelleth none can say;
    For into darkness fell his star
    In Mordor where the shadows are.
  2. #2
    “Cacambo asked one of the great officers in what way he should pay his obeisance to his Majesty; whether they should throw themselves upon their knees or on their stomachs; whether they should put their hands upon their heads or behind their backs; whether they should lick the dust off the floor; in a word, what was the ceremony?
    ‘The custom,” said the great officer, ‘is to embrace the King, and to kiss him on each cheek.’”
  3. #3
    “Whoso pulleth Out This Sword of This Stone and Anvil, is Rightwise King Born of All England.”
