"Young knight learn to love God and revere women so that your honour grows. Practice knighthood and learn the Art that dignifies you, and brings you honour in wars. Wrestle well and wield lance, spear, sword and dagger manfully, whose use in others’ hands is wasted. Strike bravely and hard there!"
"Thus when you come within the barriers and will begin attack, then let any foe say and do what he will; and cower not within yourself; and have the earnest in mind; and whatever he says unto you, do not react to it; and fight earnestly for yourself thusly; and let him have no rest and become no threat; and follow the art, thus fear not his strikes; and would he draw you into meetings of the blades, then counterstrike merrily"
"Now I should add that a man may fight at the barrier well armored, with a knowledge of the art of combat, and may have all the advantages possible to have, but if he lacks courage he may as well just go ahead and hang himself."
"And nobody should feel embarrassed to carry swords at all times, even considering that many, never (or almost never) are going to take any advantage of the decision; even so, they carry them just because they think that sooner or later they might need to use them."
"Young man, now learn to love God and honor women, speak well of women and be brave, as one should be, guard yourself from lies and deceit. Strive after integrity and take great pains in your knightly practices: throwing and pushing stones, dancing and jumping, fencing and wrestling, running at the lance and tournaments, and courting beautiful women.
