Braveheart: the speech of William Wallace

2 06 2010

Ever seen the movie Braveheart? If you haven’t, you should. This is the famous speech given by warrior-leader William Wallace to his rag-tag army of Scottish rebels, lined up to fight the vast army of England. William delivers these words from the back of a dangerous-looking horse primed to charge into battle. These words of courage and inspiration are some of the most inspiring in cinematic history – while we may not have to fight physical battles in our day to day lives, sometimes we need a shot of daring challenge to inspire us to pick ourselves up and charge onwards and upwards! Enjoy.

William Wallace: We all end up dead, it’s just a question of how and why. Every man dies, not every man really lives.I am William Wallace! And I see a whole army of my countrymen, here in defiance of tyranny. You’ve come to fight as free men… and free men you are. What will you do with that freedom? Will you fight?

Veteran: Fight? Against that? No! We will run. And we will live.

William Wallace: Aye, fight and you may die. Run, and you’ll live… at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willin’ to trade ALL the days, from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take… OUR FREEDOM!

[Scottish army cheers]

William Wallace: Go back to England and tell them there that Scotland’s daughters and her sons are yours no more. Tell them Scotland is free.

I hardly leave remarks, but i did some searching and
wound up here Braveheart: the speech of William Wallace | 1000
Diamonds. And I actually do have 2 questions for you
if it’s allright. Could it be just me or does it look like some of
the comments come across as if they are written by brain
dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting at other sites, I would like
to follow everything new you have to post. Would you list of all of your community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
