Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix) “I would butcher the whole world if you would only love me. I search the faces of the gods…for ways to please you, to make you proud. One kind word, one full hug… where you pressed me to your chest and held me tight. It would have been like the sun on my heart for a thousand years”.

Gladiator (2000)
