We have shown them vulnerable. We have shown them that a trembling hand can become a fist. We have challenged the idea that a slave must always know his place, accepting because he was taught to accept it. We built the mighty republic, with our hands, and our blood, and our lives. And we can see it fall, at equal cost.
You opened my eyes to this, Spartacus. Do not ask me now to close them.
Crixus, in Spartacus: War of the Damned, 8, Separate Paths
We stand in the shadow of greater might. As their republic cast across the lives of every man, every woman and every child condemned to the darkness of slavery. Forced to toil and suffer, so that those of coin and position may see their fortunes grow beyond need or purpose. Let us teach them that all who draw breath are of equal worth! And those who seek to place heel upon throat of liberty shall fall to cry of freedom!
Spartacus, in Spartacus: War of the Damned, 10 Victory (Last Speech before Last Battle)
Do not shed tear! There is no greater victory than to fall from this world a free man.
Spartacus, in Spartacus: War of the Damned, 10 Victory (Last Words)
One day Rome shall fade and crumble. Yet you shall always be remembered in the hearts of those that yearn for freedom.
Agron, in Spartacus: War of the Damned, 10 Victory (Last [?] Farewell)
