      Now remember, things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is.

      Josey Wales: When I get to likin’ someone, they ain’t around long.
      Lone Watie: I notice when you get to DISlikin’ someone they ain’t around for long neither.

      Are you gonna pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?

      Jamie: I wish we had time to bury them fellas.
      Josey Wales: To hell with them fellas. Buzzards gotta eat, same as worms.

      Ten Bears: These things you say we will have, we already have.
      Josey Wales: That’s true. I ain’t promising you nothing extra. I’m just giving you life and you’re giving me life. And I’m saying that men can live together without butchering one another.
      Ten Bears: It’s sad that governments are chiefed by the double tongues. There is iron in your words of death for all Comanche to see, and so there is iron in your words of life. No signed paper can hold the iron. It must come from men. The words of Ten Bears carries the same iron of life and death. It is good that warriors such as we meet in the struggle of life… or death. It shall be life.

      Senator: The war’s over. Our side won the war. Now we must busy ourselves winning the peace. And Fletcher, there’s an old saying: To the victors belong the spoils.
      Fletcher: There’s another old saying, Senator: Don’t piss down my back and tell me it’s raining.

      Bounty hunter #1: You’re wanted, Wales.
      Josey Wales: Reckon I’m right popular. You a bounty hunter?
      Bounty hunter #1: A man’s got to do something for a living these days.
      Josey Wales: Dyin’ ain’t much of a living, boy.

      Josey Wales: Anyone gets hit, sing out. Slap iron to it. It’s the fastest way to stop the bleeding.

      Jamie: You can’t get ’em all, Josie.
      Josey Wales: That’s a fact.
      Jamie: How come you’re doing this, then?
      Josey Wales: Because I ain’t got nothin’ better to do.

      Laura Lee: Kansas was all golden and smelled like sunshine.
      Josey Wales: Yeah, well, I always heard there were three kinds of suns in Kansas, sunshine, sunflowers, and sons-of-bitches.

      Josey Wales: This boy was brought up in a time of blood and dying and never questioned a bit of it. He never turned his back on his folks or his kind. I rode with him… and I got no complaints. The blue bellies will give ya a better burial than I can, boy.

      Captain Terrill: Not a hard man to track. Leaves dead men wherever he goes.

      Lone Watie: How did you know which one was goin’ to shoot first?
      Josie Wales: Well, that one in the center: he had a flap holster and he was in no itchin’ hurry. And the one second from the left: he had scared eyes, he wasn’t gonna do nothin’. But that one on the far left: he had crazy eyes. Figured him to make the first move.
      Lone Watie: How ’bout the one on the right?
      Josie Wales: Never paid him no mind; you were there.
      Lone Watie: I could have missed.
