Quotes from the Movie Cleopatra

The corridors are dark, gentlemen but you mustn't be afraid. I am with you.

Cleopatra

We must not disappoint the mighty Caesar! The Romans tell fabulous tales of my baths and handmaidens... and my morals!

Cleopatra

I will not be told where I can go and where I cannot go!

Cleopatra

I am the Nile. I will have sons. Isis has told me My breasts are full of love and life. My hips are rounded and well apart. Such women, they say, have sons.

Cleopatra

How dare you and the rest of your barbarians set fire to my library? Play conqueror all you want, Mighty Caesar! Rape, murder, pillage thousands, millions of human beings! But neither you nor any other barbarian has the right to destroy one human thought!

Cleopatra

There are never enough hours in the days of a queen, and her nights have too many.

Cleopatra

We'll make this our beginning. Beginning with tonight... You must never envy Caesar, or anyone, anything else again.

Cleopatra

Strange, there has not been such a silence.

Cleopatra

Octavian, when I am ready to die, I will die.

Cleopatra

I shall have to insist that you mind what you say. I am Isis. I am worshiped by millions who believe it. You are not to confuse what I am with the so-called divine origin which every Roman general seems to acquire together with his shield. It was, uh, Venus you chose to be descended from, wasn't it?

Cleopatra

Catullus doesn't approve of you... why haven't you had him killed?

Cleopatra

Without you Antony, this is not a world I want to live in, much less conquer.Because for me there would be no love anywhere. Do you want me to die with you ? I will. Or do you want me to live with you ? Whatever you choose.

Cleopatra

... a position not acquired without certain, shall we say, sacrifice.

Caesar

Flavius, return Apollodorus' dagger to him but clean it first. It has Pothinus all over it.

Caesar

I do not understand why the eyes of a statue should always lack life.

Caesar

You all look so impressive. Any one of you could be king.

Julius Caesar

Et cetera, et cetera; you welcome me. And I, Gaius Julius Caesar, Consul of the Roman Senate, Pontifex Maximus, et cetera, et cetera, thank you.

Julius Caesar

Ah, yes. I seem to recall some mention of an obsession you have about your divinity... Isis, is it not?

Julius Caesar

From the first instant I saw you, entering Rome on that monstrous stone beast, shining in the sun like a little gold toy how I envied Caesar. Went suddenly sick with it. Not his conquests or his triumphs. Not his titles of the mob. I envied him you.

Antony

Why are you not dead? Why do you live? How do you live? Why do you not lie at the deepest hole of the sea, bloodless, and bloated, and at peace with honorable death?

Antony

Take my breath away...

Antony

Your tongue is old, but sharp, Cicero. Be careful how you waggle it. One day it will cut off your head.

Marc Antony

Octavian... this son of Caesar, does it upset you?

Marc Antony

You were so shut at the mouth just now one would think your words were are precious to you as your gold.

Marc Antony
