Off the Pot and Ready to Fight

Maximus: Fratres!
[Cavalry addresses Maximus]

Maximus: [Seven Months from now] I will be harvesting my crops. Imagine where you will be, and it will be so. Hold the line! Stay with me! If you find yourself alone, riding in the green fields with the sun on your face, do not be troubled. For you are in Elysium, and you're already dead!
[Cavalry laughs]

Maximus: Brothers, what we do in life... echoes in eternity.

(From the film Gladiator. Dir: Ridley Scott - 2000)
