Set in Medieval 10th century Scotland, Princess Merida decides to defy the age old customs enforced by her mother, Elinor and refuses to marry the oldest son of one of three lords from other clans, causing chaos in her kingdom.
We’re sure you’ll find inspiration in many of Merida’s words, and learn a lot about what a princess should or should not be.
1. Our fate lives in us. You only have to be brave enough to see it. – Merida
2. There are those who say fate is something beyond our command. That destiny is not our own, but I know better. Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it. – Merida
3. A lady does not place her weapon on the table. – Queen Elinor
4. Fate be changed, look inside. Mend the bond torn by pride. – The Witch
5. Some say our destiny is tied to the land, as much a part of us as we are of it. Others say fate is woven together like a cloth, so that one’s destiny intertwines with many others. It’s the one thing we search for, or fight to change. Some never find it, but there are some who are led. – Merida
6. There comes a day when I don’t have to be a princess. No rules, no expectations. A day where anything can happen. A day where I can change my fate. – Merida
7. A princess does not chortle, doesn’t stuff her gob, rises early, is compassionate, patient, cautious, clean, and above all, a princess strives for, well, perfection. – Queen Elinor
8. You are a princess. I expect you to act like one. – Queen Elinor
