The clip The gods envy us from Troy (2004) with Rose Byrne, Brad Pitt
Why did you choose this life?
To be a great warrior.
I chose nothing. I was born, and this is what I am.
And you? Why did you choose to love a god?
I think you'll find the romance one-sided.
Do you enjoy provoking me?
You've dedicated your life to the gods.
Zeus, god of thunder. Athena, goddess of wisdom. You serve them.
Yes, of course.
And Ares, god of war?
Who blankets his bed with the skin of men he's killed?
All the gods are to be feared and respected.
I'll tell you a secret...
...something they don't teach you in your temple.
The gods envy us.
They envy us because we're mortal.
Because any moment might be our last.
Everything's more beautiful because we're doomed.
You will never be lovelier than you are now.
We will never be here again.
I thought you were a dumb brute.
I could have forgiven a dumb brute.
