Conan the Barbarian (2011)
Ron Perlman: Corin
Corin : What is most important when making a sword, fire or ice?
Young Conan : Fire.
[Corin looks at Young Conan with some disbelief]
Young Conan : [pause] ... Ice?
Corin : Are you sure?
[pause; then Corin strikes the anvil with a newly-forged sword which breaks]
Corin : Fire... and ice. That is the mystery of steel.
Corin : When a Cimmerian feels thirst, it is a thirst for blood. When he feels cold, it is the cold edge of steel. For the courage of a Cimmerian is tempered: he neither fears death... nor rushes foolishly to meet it. To be a Cimmerian warrior, you must have both cunning and balance as well as speed and strength.
Corin : [Corin has just put an egg in each of the student's mouths, except Young Conan's, in preparation for a test] The first to circle the hills and return, the egg unbroken, earns the right to fight with the warriors.
[Sends the students on the way as a Young Conan is looking disappointed]
Corin : Oh, by Crom, boy. What are you waiting for?
[Gives Young Conan an egg as he rushes on his way]
Corin : [Conan remembering his father's words] The sword we make will be yours one day. But before you wield it, you must first understand it.
Corin : [to Conan] You're not ready for this sword.
