Spartan King Leonidas

  • We're in for one wild night.
  • Spartans! Ready your breakfast and eat hearty, for tonight we dine in Hell!
  • A new age has come: an age of freedom. And all will know that 300 Spartans gave their last breath to defend it.
  • This is where we hold them! This is where we FIGHT! This is where they DIE!
  • Remember this day, men, for it will be yours for all time.
  • Give them nothing! But take from them everything!
  • [After Xerxes offered to make Leonidas Warlord of his Empire, if he would only kneel before him] Wow. That is generous. But you see, there is a problem. Slaughtering so many of your men today, has left an awful cramp in my leg [stretches] and thus kneeling will be difficult.
  • There's no reason we can't be civil. [Stated while his soldiers spear wounded enemies.]
  • [After being threatened with the deaths of the Spartan women] Clearly you don't know our women. I might as well have marched them up here, judging by what I've seen.
  • The world will know that free men stood against a tyrant, that few stood against many, and before this battle was over, that even a god-king can bleed.
  • Spartans! Prepare for glory!
  • [After a Persian emissary declared that their actions were madness] Madness? This is SPARTA!! [and then kicks him down a well]
  • [Response to an Arcadian saying their choices were to retreat, surrender, or die.] Well that’s an easy choice for us to make; Spartans never retreat. Spartans never surrender!
  • [After dropping his helmet and his shield whilst being asked to submit] You there, Ephialtes, may you live forever.
  • [Dying words] My Queen! My Wife! My Love.
  • No Spartan dies today!
