Vikings Quotes

Count Odo: There was someone else, a great warrior. He spiked that machine and he did it alone. I have never seen a man of such strength and such violence. Who is he?
Cindrich: His name is Rollo. He is the brother of King Ragnar, the leader of the Northmen. He is a famous warrior. He fights like a crazy bear.
Count Odo: Your highness, this man Cindrich, will be of use to us.
Princess Gisla: And this Earl?
Count Odo: Perhaps he could be bartered? Fetch us a good price.
Princess Gisla: If you care for me at all Count Odo, you will bring me his head.

Ragnar: What do you see?
Bjorn: Power, the power of a king.
Ragnar: Power is always dangerous. It attracts the worst and corrupts the best. I never asked for power. Power is only given to those who are prepared to lower themselves to pick it up.
