Alexander: The Movie

Tonight, I’m wrapping up the evening by again watching Alexander (2004). I’ve always admired Alexander, and I think the movie does the Macedonian king credit, if you can get past some of the movie’s flaws. While Oliver Stone’s movie has had its share of critics, I still found the movie and its script inspirational, and I especially noticed some of the lines that are excellent food for thought:

Alexander says, “In the end, all that matters is what you’ve done.”

Alexander also says about his mother, “I am the cracked mirror of her dreams.”

Quoting Alexander, Ptolemy says, “Alexander used to say that we are most alone when we are with the myths.”

These are only a few of the great lines in the movie’s script. You can find many more quotations from the movie here:
