Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we are gone, and wonder who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved?

It's no insult to say a dead man is dead.

If they ever tell my story, let them say that I walked with giants. Men rise and fall like the winter wheat, but these names will never die. Let them say I lived in the time of Hector, tamer of horses. Let them say I lived in the time of Achilles.

This war will never be forgotten, nor will the heroes who fight in it.

[to Achilles] War is young men dying and old men talking. You know this.

[to Agamemnon] Imagine a king who fights his own battles. Wouldn't that be a sight.

You have your sword, I have my tricks; we play with the toys the gods give us.

[to Achilles] Let Achilles fight for honor. Let Agamemnon fight for power and let the gods decide which man to glorify. Forget about Agamemnon, fight for me. My wife will feel much better knowing you're by my side. I will feel much better.

[after slaying Boagrius] Is there no one else? IS THERE NO ONE ELSE?!

[to Hector] We will meet again, brother.

[to Briseis] You are free. If I hurt you, it's not what I wanted. Go, no one will stop you. You have my word.

[to Briseis] Trojan soldiers died protecting you. Perhaps they deserve more than your pity.

[to Briseis] You gave me peace in a lifetime of war.

[to Briseis] I'll tell you a secret. Something they don't teach you in your temple. The Gods envy us. They envy us because we're mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful BECAUSE we're doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now, and we will never be here again.

The Gods only protect the strong.
