Proximo: Some of you say you can’t fight, you won’t fight. They all say that. But one day you will pick up a sword and thrust it into another man. And the crowd will cheer you and love you. And you will love them for it. On that day, you will be a gladiator.

Maximus: At my signal, unleash hell.

Maximus: Strength and honor.

Maximus: It’s the frost, it sometimes makes the blade stick.

Quintus: These barbarians would rather drown in blood than yield an inch. If I didn’t hate them so much I would admire them.
