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.[to Commodus]
If you find yourself alone, riding in green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled. For you are in Elysium, and you’re already dead!
Is Rome worth one good man’s life? We believed it once. Make us believe it again.[to Senator Gracchus]
Watch now on:
I knew a man who once said, “Death smiles at us all. All a man can do is smile back.”[to Commodus, quoting Marcus Aurelius]
