1. "He will always be my Sir Galahad."
Author: Ava Gardner
2. "- Galahad - mi diceva - è innamorato della perfezione ed è troppo schizzinoso per amare una donna in carne e ossa. Ama le donne come concetto, ma non sopporta la loro realtà, le malattie, il dolore, il sangue.- Be', non ha mai provato fastidio per cose del genere, in battaglia - commentai io.- Certo - replicò Ceinwyn - ma in battaglia, coperti di sangue o ferite, ci sono solo uomini e Galahad non ha difficoltà ad ammetterne i difetti. Non ha mai idealizzato gli uomini: solo le donne."
Author: Bernard Cornwell
3. "I can do lovers. I can do Sir Galahad types. I'm not going to limit myself in voice-overs to irascible old men."

Author: Evelyn Underhill
5. "I snapped the crossbow into the top of the mount, took a canvas bundle from the cart, and unrolled it. Crossbow bolts, tipped with the Galahad warheads."This is my baby." I petted the stock."You have a strange relationship with your weapons," Roman said."You have no idea," Raphael told him."This from a man with a living staff and a man who once drove four hours both ways for a sword he then put on his wall," I murmured."It was an Angus Trim," Raphael said."It's a sharpened strip of metal.""You have an Angus Trim sword?" Kate's eyes lit up."Bought it at an estate auction," Raphael said. "If we get out of this alive, you are invited to come to my house and play with it."It was good that Curran wasn't here and I was secure in our relationship, because that totally could be taken the wrong way."
Author: Ilona Andrews

7. "But from the start I had withheld from him any information about the giant redwoods. It seemed to me that a Long Island poodle who had made his devoirs to Sequoia sempervirens or Sequoia gigantea might be set apart from other dogs--might even be like that Galahad who saw the Grail. The concept is staggering."

8. "His very first story, he told me as he was dying, was set in Camelot, the court of King Arthur in Britain: Merlin the Court Magician casts a spell that allows him to equip the Knights of the Round Table with Thompson submachine guns and drums of .45-caliber dumdums. Sir Galahad, the purest in heart and mind, familiarizes himself with this new virtue-compelling appliance. While doing so, he puts a slug through the Holy Grail and makes a Swiss cheese of Queen Guinevere."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
9. "So, cool as a lord, the old Galahad walking out to the road, with plastic raincoat hanging on the arm, and the eyes not missing one sharp craft that pass, bowing his head in a polite 'Good evening' and not giving a blast if they answer or not. This is London, this is life oh lord, to walk like a king with money in your pocket, not a worry in the world."
Author: Samuel Selvon
10. "Is one of those summer evenings, when it look like night would never come, a magnificent evening, a powerful evening, rent finish paying, rations in the cupboard, twenty pounds in the bank, and a nice piece of skin waiting under the big clock in Piccadilly Tube Station. The sky blue, sun shining, the girls ain't have on no coats to hide the legs."Mummy, look at that black man!" A little child, holding on to the mother hand, look up at Sir Galahad. "You mustn't say that, dear!" The mother chide the child."
Author: Samuel Selvon

Oh Lord."
Author: Samuel Selvon
