5.         “Apollo was like my son. I raised him. And when he died a part of me died. But now you're the one.            You're the one that's gonna keep his spirit alive.

But in the end, I know you'll be the one standing.” – Duke 

4.         “My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the    Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius.
