Conquer your fear, and I promise you’ll conquer death. Alexander

Quotes from the Movie Alexander


  • In the end, all that matters is what you’ve done.




  • 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 Heracles. Ask any of them. Fate is cruel. No man or woman can be too powerful or too beautiful without disaster befalling. They laugh when you rise too high. And they crush everything you’ve built with a whim. What glory they give in the end, they take away. They… They make of us slaves.


  • I didn’t cross Asia to steal this victory, Cassander.”

  • All men reach and fall…

  • It was an empire not of land and gold but of the mind.

  • Did such a man as Alexander exist? Of course not! We idolize him; make him better than he was.

  • I never believed in his dream. None of us did. That’s the truth of his life. The dreamers exhaust us. They must die before they kill us with their blasted dreams.

  • Sometimes expecting the best of people can be a flaw.

  • Excess in all things is the undoing of men!I can only warn you, not teach you. Beware of what you dream for; the gods have a way of punishing such pride.



  • But I am Alexander. And no more than Earth has two suns, will Asia bear two kings.

  • His failure towered over other men’s successes.

  • The glory and memory of man will always belong to the ones who follow their great visions.



Final words of the film

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.
