The clip heart to heart with ceaser Part 2 from Gladiator (2000) with Richard Harris, Russell Crowe
When a man sees his end, he wants to know there was some purpose this life.
How will the world speak my name in years to come?
Will I be known as the philosopher?
The warrior? The tyrant?
Or will I be the emperor who gave Rome back her true self?
There was once a dream that was Rome.
You could only whisper it.
Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish.
It was so fragile.
And I fear that it will not survive the winter.
Let us whisper now, together, you and l.
You have a son.
Tell me about your home.
My house is in the hills above Tiujillo. A very simple place.
Pinkstones that warm in the sun.
A kitchen garden that smells of herbs in the day, jasmine in the evening.
Through the gate is a giant poplar.
Figs, apples, pears.
The soil, Marcus- black.
Black like my wife's hair.
Grapes on the south slopes, olives on the north.
Wild ponies play near my house. They tease my son.
He wants to be one of them.
Remember the last time you were home?
Two years, 264 days, and this morning.
I envy you, Maximus.
It's a good home. Worth fighting for.
There is one more duty that I ask of you before you go home.
