'Brave' is a classic adventure/fantasy movie, animated by Pixar and directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman. Princess Merida (Macdonald) is stubborn and absolutely determined to live a more exciting life than the one she has in her family's kingdom in Scotland. Her parents, King Fergus (Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Thompson) want to shelter her -- they'd like to see Merida married off. That's definitely not what Merida wants. She craves adventure and longs to be off on her own, independent of anyone and everything. That certainly breaks with the kingdom's royal traditions and expectations, and her parents aren't happy about it. Merida eventually leaves the safety of her kingdom, with only her horse, Angus, for company. Can she survive in the wild? Merida does have skills: She's extremely handy with a bow and arrow, and her archery skills will come in handy as she faces enemies unlike anything she's ever known before.
So what are best quotes Brave? Take a look at this list and you'll get that answer.
Arrows Into the Sunset
Poor Queen Elinor: She's having such a hard time accepting that Merida is determined to be her own person. She's trying hard to understand, and King Fergus decides to help her (with humor).
King Fergus: "Pretend I'm Merida. Speak to me. What would you say?"
Queen Elinor: "I can't do this..."
King Fergus: "Sure you can." (Elinor gives him a dirty look) "There! There! That's my queen. Right? Here we go..." (in a shrill voice): "I don't want to get married, I want to stay single and let my hair flow in the wind as I ride through the glen firing arrows into the sunset."
Merida is determined to alter the course of her life, but at what cost? The price may be far higher than she realizes. The Wise Woman (Julie Walters) gives her the spell she wants, though it's certainly NOT what she'd expected.
Princess Merida: "I want a spell that will change my fate."
Carried in the Wind
Bravery is regarded as the "heart" of the kingdom. Generations of families in Scotland have faced seemingly insurmountable odds, and somehow prevailed. This includes King Fergus, the ruler of DunBroch (and his daughter, Merida).
King Fergus: "The ancients spoke of it. It is the heart of this fierce land. It is carried in the wind. Born of our legends and when we are put to the test, it is the one thing that we must always be."
Is Merida's headstrong nature King Fergus' fault? Probably not, but Queen Elinor needs a scapegoat here, so she blames her (stubborn) husband for Merida's fiercely independent nature.
Queen Elinor (to King Fergus): "I blame you. Stubbornness is from your side of the family..."
