What we do in life echoes in eternity.
Ultimately, we're all dead men. Sadly, we cannot choose how, but what we can decide is how we meet that end, in order that we are remembered, as men.
Today I saw a slave become more powerful than the Emperor of Rome.
At my signal, unleash hell.
The general who became a slave. The slave who became a gladiator. The gladiator who defied an emperor. Striking story! But now, the people want to know how the story ends. Only a famous death will do. And what could be more glorious than to challenge the Emperor himself in the great arena?You would fight me?Why not? Do you think I am afraid?I think you've been afraid all your life.
