Friar Tuck Gandhi

from BBC's Robin Hood 3x12

Friar Tuck Gandhi: Gentlemen these gates will open soon. Now it is our task to stop the supply trade in its tracks and that is exactly what we are going to do. As an army, as a militia, we would be crushed, the sheriff's men would hack us down like weeds... but it's harder to cut the spirit with a blade. When these gates open and the supply trade pulls out we are going to sit down, just sit in silence. My friends, we are going to turn the other cheek.
Little John: They... We will be crushed!
Friar Tuck Gandhi: Dignity John! Dignity! Even when everything has been taken from us we still have that and the sheriff's men will be faced with a choice, stand aside or carry out a massacre
Little John: The sheriff's men... I think we know what choice they're gonna make...
Friar Tuck Gandhi: They may be soldiers John but they are still men, just men, and faced with the power of truth a man can change. If we all stand together, we can have that power. We can be unstoppable.
