Philip: [to Young Alexander] A king isn't born, Alexander, he is made. By steel and by suffering. A king must know how to hurt those he loves. It's lonely. Ask anyone. Ask Herakles. Ask any of them.

Wrestling Trainer: You don't need much to fight. When you're in the front ranks of a battle, chasing some northern barbarian tribe. Courage won't be in the lining of your stomach Nearchus, is in the heart of a man. You don't need to eat everyday or until your full Ptolemy.

Young Nearchus: Why are the Persians so cruel?
Aristotle: That is not the subject for today Nearchus. But it is true, the Oriental races are known for their barbarity and slavish devotion to their senses. Excess in all things is the undoing of men. That is why we Greeks are superior, we practice control of our senses. Moderation.

Philip: Shut up! Shut up all of you! This is my wedding, not some public brawl!
[Looks at Alexander]
Philip: Apologize by Zeus, before you dishonor me.
Alexander: You defend the man that called my mother a whore and me a bastard? And I dishonor you?

Attalus: You insult me!
Alexander: I insult you? Am I not fit to lick the ground my mother walks on?
Philip: Shame?
Alexander: You dog, questioning your Queen.
Philip: Shame? I have nothing to be ashamed of you arrogant brat. I'll marry the girl if I want, and I'll have as many sons as I want, and there's nothing that you or your harpy mother can do about it!
Alexander: Why, drunken man, must you think everything I do and say comes from my mother?
Philip: Because I know her heart, by Hera. And I see her in your eyes. You covet this throne too much. Now we all know that she-wolf for a mother of yours wants me dead. Well, you can both dream boy.

Give us a Macedonian heir. A Macedonian heir.More Movie: Alexander [2004] Movie: Alexander [2004] [03/23/2007 12:03:00]
Old Ptolemy: The truth is never simple and yet it is. The truth is we did kill him. By silence we consented, because, because we couldn't go on. But by Ares, did we have to look forward to, but to be discarded in the end like Cleitus? After all this time, to give away our wealth to Asian sick offense we despised? Mixing the races? Harmony? Oh, he talked of this things.More Movie: Alexander [2004] Movie: Alexander [2004] [03/23/2007 12:03:00]
