The Once and Future King Book 3, Chapter 27

Gawaine feels terrible about murdering his mother, though he believes Lamorak deserved to die. He hopes to be punished at court. Mordred, however, feels no shame and asks for his pardon from Arthur almost sarcastically. Arthur pardons them both, but is very angry. He believes that now that his knights' Might has erased all the dragons and evil kings from the land, they are fighting amongst themselves simply to use up energy. He decides, therefore, to send his knights on spiritual quests, though the idea makes him a little nervous: "If people reach perfection they vanish, you know." Book 3, Chapter 27, pg. 458 Lancelot is very excited at the idea-he wants to find the Holy Grail--and this upsets Guenever. She has always resented his holiness.
