Gladiator quote

"My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, Commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance, in this life or the next."

That quote's always worth a bit of a run when you're feeling hard done by and the bus is running late.

I try to remember Michael Douglas' character in the movie Falling Down

Yeah that was a good one, although, MD lacked the nobility of Rusty in Gladiator.

I liked this from Braveheart

Robert the Bruce: Lands, titles, men, power... nothing.

Robert's Father: Nothing?

Robert the Bruce: I have nothing. Men fight for me because if they do not, I throw them off my land and I starve their wives and children. Those men who bled the ground red at Falkirk fought for William Wallace. He fights for something that I never had. And I took it from him, when I betrayed him. I saw it in his face on the battlefield and it's tearing me apart.

Robert's Father: All men betray. All lose heart.

Robert the Bruce: I don't want to lose heart. I want to believe as he does.
