Ptolemy quotes

It was said later that Alexander was never defeated, except by Hephaistion's thighs.

Back, and to the left! ~ Macedonian Soldier

All men reach and fall...

Alexander used to say that we are most alone when we are with the myths.

He was a god, Cadmos, or as close as anything I've ever seen.

His tragedy was one of increasing loneliness and impatience with those who could not understand. And if his desire to unite Greek and barbarian ended in failure... what failure! His failure towered over other men's successes. I've lived... I've lived a long life, Cadmos. But the glory and the memory of man will always belong to the ones who follow their great visions. And the greatest of these is the one they now... call "Megas Alexandros" - the greatest Alexander of them all.
