Alexander used to say that we are most alone when we are with the myths.
He was a god, Cadmos, or as close as anything I've ever seen.
His tragedy was one of increasing loneliness and impatience with those who could not understand. And if his desire to unite Greek and barbarian ended in failure... what failure! His failure towered over other men's successes. I've lived... I've lived a long life, Cadmos. But the glory and the memory of man will always belong to the ones who follow their great visions. And the greatest of these is the one they now... call "Megas Alexandros" - the greatest Alexander of them all.
All you desire in the world is yours! Take it...
In my womb I carried my avenger!

Alexander, the world is yours. Take it!
I found it in Egypt. The man who sold it to me said it came from a time when man worshipped sun and stars. I'll always think of you as the sun, Alexander and I pray your dream will shine on all men. I wish you a son.
You're everything I care for and by the sweet breath of Aphrodite I'm so jealous of losing you to this world you want so badly.
The generals question your obsession with Darius... they say it was never meant for you to be King of Asia.
