Life cannot be captured. Human heart cannot be captured. The moment of creation itself is fleeting.

 I’m a lot older than you but I tend to think that there’s an element of music that cannot be captured. Life cannot be captured. Human heart cannot be captured. The moment of creation itself is fleeting

I never met my grandfather, he died when I was just a little baby.

But when I hear about him and Hachi, I feel like I know him.

They taught me the meaning of loyalty. That you should never forget anyone

that you loved. And that’s why Hachi will forever be my hero.

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.

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.

You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it.

The important thing about that freedom train, is it’s got to climb mountains. We ALL have to climb mountains, you know. Mountains that go way up high, and mountains that go deep and low. Yes, we know what those mountains are here at Glide. We sing about them.

It was at that time that I thought about Thomas Jefferson writing that Declaration of Independence. Him saying that we have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I thought about how he knew to put the ‘pursuit’ in there, like no one can actually have happiness. We can only pursue it.

Christopher Gardner: You gotta trust me, all right?

Christopher: I trust you.
