Famous Quotes

1) Gladiator Speech

My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius,

Commander of the Armies of the North,

General of the Felix Legions,

husband to a murdered wife,

and I will have my vengeance — in this life or the next.

2) Churchill Bernanrd Shaw

  • Churchill wrote back: ‘ cannot possibly attend the first night, will attend second… If you have one.

I have decided to collect the quotes that I come across and post the links to them on this page.
