The best Quotes from Troy

Troy is a 2004 epic historical war drama film directed by Wolfgang Petersen and written by David Benioff. The film is loosely based on Homer's Iliad in its narration of the entire story of the decade-long Trojan War - condensed into little more than a couple of weeks, rather than just the quarrel between Achilles and Agamemnon in the ninth year.

The gods envy us. They envy us because we're mortal, because any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful because we're doomed. You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.

I've fought many wars in my time. Some I've fought for land, some for power, some for glory. I suppose fighting for love makes more sense than all the rest.
