Quotes from the Movie BenHur 1959

They were dead...in the prison, when I was waiting for news of my father...Oh Judah, you have come to the end of your search. It's over now...Judah, Judah, forget, forget, forget Messala. Go back to Rome.

Esther

Life is everlasting. Death is nothing to fear if you have faith.

Esther

Citizens. I welcome you to these games in the name of your Emperor, the divine Tiberius. We dedicate them to his glory and to the glory of Rome of which you are all part.

Pontius Pilate

That was a great victory. You were the people's one true god for the time being. Permit us to worship.

Pontius Pilate

I see this terrible thing in your eyes, Judah Ben-Hur. But no matter what this man has done to you, you've no right to take his life. He will be punished inevitably.

Balthasar of Alexandria

Anno Domini - In the year of our Lord, Judea for nearly a century had lain under the mastery of Rome. In the seventh year of the reign of Augustus Caesar, an imperial decree ordered every Judean each to return to his place of birth to be counted and taxed. Converging ways of many of them led to the gates of their capital city Jerusalem, the troubled heart of their land...Even while they obeyed the will of Caesar, the people clung proudly to their ancient heritage always remembering the promise of their prophets that one day there would be born among them a Redeemer to bring them salvation and perfect freedom.

Do not pity me, Master Judah. In fact, I'm twice the man I was. There's Mallet, my other half. We met in the dungeons at the citadel. We were released on the same day, Mallet without a tongue and I without life in my legs. Since then, I have been his tongue and he has been my legs. Together, we make a considerable man.

Simonides

He is never to know. Let him remember us as we were. There's nothing else I can hope for, only this.
