Do you playH
The whole world is in chess.
mÕãÉÍ ±Ì¢Ìk}ª éÌ¾æn
Any move can be the death of you.
Do anything except remain where you started,
and you can't be sure of your end.
Were you sure of your end onceH
What was itH
To be buried a hundred yards from where I was born.
Now I sit in Jerusalem and look upon a king.
When I was 16,
I won a great victory.
I felt in that moment I would live to be 100.
Now I know I shall not see 30.
None of us choose our end, really...
or what hand will guide us there.
A king may move a man.
A father may claim a son.

That man can also move himself.
And only then does that man truly begin his own game.
Remember, how so ever you are played, or by whom,
your soul is in your keeping alone...
even though those who presume to play you
be kings or men of power.

When you stand before God, you cannot say@
"but I was told by others to do thus,"
or that "virtue was not convenient at that time".
This will not suffice.
Balian: I will.
You know what this isH
What do you think of itH
You disapprove. Well, how would you improve itH
A cross. Or better, a star, like this.
That way no part of the fortress may be approached
without beng exposed to fire from another part.
Yes, I like this.
Your walls are more difficult to adress. Very good.
You will go to your father's house at Ibelin, your house now,

And from there protect the pilgrim road.
Safegurd in particular the Jews and the Muslims.
All are welcome in Jerusalem.
Not only because it's expedient but because it is right.
Protect the helpless.
And then, perhaps one day
when I am helpless, you will come and protect me.
