Caption was not well done back in the days. I collected a bunch of quotes from the book for similar scenes if you are interested:

===
Takezo. Cut off the past. You are a new man. Reborn, as it were. Break free from the past.
===
One does not take a woman along on a journey of training. ... If you care for me, do not follow.
-I will follow even beyond the Great Seas. ... leave me in the wilderness, or anywhere you like. I shall be obedient. But take me with you!
===
A woman is drawn to a strong man. You make me feel like a woman. Take me, Takezo. Don't you understand how I feel about you? It's like death for a woman to say such a thing aloud. Take me. ...

However, life is like a real battle. There is no rematch.

As I was gazing at you, bound and hanging, I saw that I too was bound by an unseen rope.

In those books are many of the things you need. After you master them, I will see you again. Farewell.

As you know, a priest has little understanding of love matters.

The sky tonight
Should happen to be cloudy
Let it be cloudy
I care not anyway
For with tears in my eyes
The moon will seem blurred

Musashi: Takuan! Takuan!
-(Takuan): What is it?
Musashi: I have something to tell you. Come closer!
- Here I am. What do you want?
Musashi: Why don't you behead me? You shame me this way! And you call yourself a priest? Don't you know how to treat a samurai? Idiot!
-You're a spirited one.
Musashi: Lout! I could have crushed you!
-Too bad you didn't.
Musashi: I surrendered believing you were a man of high virtue. A true sign of stupidity. I did nothing! I'm not ashamed. I'm a samurai!
-Are you? Samurai? With your spirit, you won't die for some time.
===
A house without love is a living death.
===
But you could use that force for the good of humanity. God and man would be moved. Nay, even the universe. A man must know awe, and fear God. Conceited in your strength, you ignored wisdom and virtue. You thought you could defeat the world. Look at yourself! Wisdom and strong virtue combined make a man. Understand? Think it over till dawn. I shall behead you then.

Won a Special/Honorary Award at the 1955 Academy Awards for outstanding foreign language film. AKA "The Legend of Musashi; Samurai Trilogy, part 1" (宮本武蔵) and based on the epic novel "Musashi" by Yoshikawa, Eiji. Watched it with VCR numerous times and then DVDs. Read the book and watched the film some more. Well, comments and quotes disappeared but not forgotten.

(Count yourself lucky if your library carries the book by Yoshikawa (translated by William Scott Wilson) and the The samurai trilogy, three films by Hiroshi Inagaki DVD set.)
