Spartan Leonidas quotes by Victor Hugo
#1. Civil war... What did the words mean? Was there any such thing as 'foreign war'? Was not all warfare between men warfare between brothers? Wars could only be defined by their aims. There were no 'foreign' or 'civil' wars, only wars that were just or unjust. Until the great universal concord could be arrived at, warfare, at least when it was the battle between the urgent future and the dragging past, might be unavoidable. How could such a war be condemned? War is not shameful, nor the sword-thrust a stab in the back, except when it serves to kill right and progress, reason, civilization, and truth. When this is war's purpose it maeks no difference whether it is civil or foreign war - it is a crime. Outside the sacred cause for justice, what grounds has one kind of war for denigrating another? By what right does the sword of Washington despise the pike of Camille Desmoulins? Which is the greater - Leonidas fighting the foreign enemy or Timoleon slaying the tyrant who was his brother? One was a defender, the other a liberator. Are we to condemn every resort to arms that takes place within the citadel, without concerning ourselves with its aim? #Quote by Victor Hugo
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Danika Stone
#2. Her gaze darted back to the computer screen. THIS IS YOUR CALL TO ACTION. If she posted this, it needed to be real. She needed people to believe Spartan could come back. They needed to trust that he'd made it out of the ship. It couldn't just be fangirl to fangirl, writing Starveil AU's that never really happened. This would be the guerrilla warfare of character ships. The fans would have to reweave the details they had into a new explanation of those last seconds of film. They'd take no prisoners, leave no wounded fans behind. But, as in any war, that meant the intel behind the revolution had to stay secret for as long as possible.
Fandom had to believe. #Quote by Danika Stone
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Anonymous
#3. If your 401(k) is lucky enough to have Vanguard funds, look for, respectively, the (U.S.) Total Stock Market Index Fund, Total International Stock Index Fund, and either the Short-Term Bond Index or Total Bond Market Index Fund. As already mentioned, the Fidelity Spartan series is also excellent: the Total Market Index, International Index, and U.S. Bond Index (or Short-Term Treasury Bond Index) funds. #Quote by Anonymous
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Shirley Maclaine
#4. For if the talent or individuality is there, it should be expressed. If it doesn't find its way out into the air, it can be turned inward and gnaw like the fox at the Spartan boy's belly. #Quote by Shirley Maclaine
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Dave Bruno
#5. Do you know how wind and water are unstoppable? The smallest cracks give wind and water all they need to creep through and make it chilly and wet. Well, I am also kind of drafty and leaky. I cannot stop up my fissures with purchases at the mall. Neither can I hold back the wind and the water with my expectations of living a spartan life. #Quote by Dave Bruno
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Gorgos
#6. Because we are the only women who are mothers of men."

Gorgo: when asked by a woman from Attica why Spartan women were the only women in the world who could rule men. #Quote by Gorgos
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Aleister Crowley
#7. There is a good deal of the Nietzschean standpoint in this verse. It is the evolutionary and natural view. Of what use is it to perpetuate the misery of tuberculosis, and such diseases, as we now do? Nature's way is to weed out the weak. This is the most merciful way, too. At present all the strong are being damaged, and their progress hindered by the dead weight of the weak limbs and the missing limbs, the diseased limbs and the atrophied limbs. The Christians to the Lions!

Our humanitarianism, which is the syphilis of the mind, acts on the basis of the lie that the King must die. The King is beyond death; it is merely a pool where he dips for refreshment. We must therefore go back to Spartan ideas of education; and the worst enemies of humanity are those who wish, under the pretext of compassion, to continue its ills through the generations. The Christians to the Lions!

Let weak and wry productions go back into the melting-pot, as is done with flawed steel castings. Death will purge, reincarnation make whole, these errors and abortions. Nature herself may be trusted to do this, if only we will leave her alone. But what of those who, physically fitted to live, are tainted with rottenness of soul, cancerous with the sin-complex? For the third time I answer: The Christians to the Lions!

Hadit calls himself the Star, the Star being the Unit of the Macrocosm; and the Snake, the Snake being the symbol of Going or Love, the Dwarf-Soul, the Spermato #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Frank Miller
#8. Remember us,
Should any free soul come across this place,
In all the countless centuries yet to be,
May our voices whisper to you from the ageless stones,
Go tell the Spartans, passerby:
That here by Spartan law, we lie. #Quote by Frank Miller
Spartan Leonidas quotes by John Scalzi
#9. Yes, Hart, I went commando to a diplomatic function," Harry said, and then motioned to his body. "And now, as you can see, I'm going Spartan so a midget can whack me with a stick." He bent and picked up his Bongka. "Honestly, Hart. Help me out here. Focus a little. #Quote by John Scalzi
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Plutarch
#10. Foreign lady once remarked to the wife of a Spartan commander that the women of Sparta were the only women in the world who could rule men. "We are the only women who raise men," the Spartan lady replied ... #Quote by Plutarch
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Esther M. Friesner
#11. The two Spartan soldiers escorting Milo and me were puzzled by my intention to get him a cloak, and they didn't hesitate to say what they thought of the matter.
"A cloak?" the taller one remarked from behind me. "In this weather? That poor lad's going to sweat away to nothing!"
"You know how cold the nights can get back home," I said. "He doesn't have to wear it now."
"Then I can't say it makes sense for him to get it now, Lady Helen," the soldier ahead of us put in. "The palace women make better cloth than any of this foreign stuff. A Spartan cloak for Spartan weather, that's what I say."
"The palace women aren't here, and who knows what the weather's going to be like on the road home?" I pointed out. "I want Milo to be prepared. #Quote by Esther M. Friesner
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Jennifer Estep
#12. Let me walk you to your room," Logan offered in a helpful voice. "You, me, and the Gypsy girl could have our own bonfire tonight."
Daphne and I stared at each other. I rolled my eyes while Daphne sniffed.
"Oh, please," she scoffed. "Like I need a guy to protect me. I'm a Valkyrie, remember? I could pick you up and break your back over my knee, Spartan. Like you were a piñata."
"Kinky," Logan said, smiling at her. "I like it."
She snorted. "Save the smarmy charm for Gwen. We all know that she's the one you're really trying to impress anyway."
We did? Because I hadn't gotten that message at all. #Quote by Jennifer Estep
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Simon Singh

Spartan Leonidas quotes by Tyrtaeus
#14. Feel no fear before the multitude of men, do not run in panic,
but let each man bear his shield straight toward the fore-fighters,
regarding his own life as hateful and holding the dark spirits of death as dear as the radiance of the sun. #Quote by Tyrtaeus
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Frank Miller
#15. The Spartans were a paradoxical people. They were the biggest slave owners in Greece. But at the same time, Spartan women had an unusual level of rights. It's a paradox that they were a bunch of people who in many ways were fascist, but they were the bulwark against the fall of democracy. #Quote by Frank Miller
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Aristophanes
#16. Lewd to the least drop in the tiniest vein, Our sex is fitly food for Tragic Poets, Our whole life's but a pile of kisses and babies. But, hardy Spartan, if you join with me All may be righted yet. O help me, help me. #Quote by Aristophanes
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Lincoln Child
#17. Admiral Spartan thinks that the object must be exposed and penetrated with all possible speed. #Quote by Lincoln Child
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Ryan Tim Morris
#18. It was clear just how much Tommy loved the city. New York City. The CKY Grocery on Amsterdam had giant, bright red Spartan apples every day of the year, even if it wasn't the right season. He loved that grocery, and the old, shaky Persian man who owned it. Tommy emphatically, yet erroneously believed that the CKY Grocery was the genuine heart of the great city. All five boroughs embodied distinct feelings for him, but there was only one that he'd ever truly romanticized. To him, Manhattan was the entire world.

He loved everything between the East River and the Hudson; from the Financial District up to Harlem; from Avenue A to Zabar's. He loved the four
seasons, although autumn was easily the most anticipated. To Tommy, Central Park's bright, almost copper hues in the fall were the epitome of orange. He loved the unique perfume of deli meats and subway steam. He loved the rain with such verve that every time it so much as drizzled, he would turn to the sky so he could feel the drops sprinkle onto his teeth. Because every raindrop that hit him had already experienced that much envied journey from the tips of the skyscrapers all the way down to the cracked and foot-stamped sidewalks. He believed every inch of the city had its own predetermined genre of music that suited it to a tee. The modal jazz of Miles Davis and Wayne Shorter was absolutely meant for the Upper East Side, north of 61st Street. Precisely between Gershwin and gospel. He loved the view from his a #Quote by Ryan Tim Morris
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Ben Parr
#19. Google is famous for making the tiniest changes to pixel locations based on the data it accrues through its tests. Google will always choose a spartan webpage that converts over a beautiful page that doesn't have the data to back it up. #Quote by Ben Parr
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Plutarch
#20. Come and take them #Quote by Plutarch
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Dick Francis
#21. The house was dark. Upstairs, behind the black open window with the pale curtain flapping in the spartan air, slept Arthur Morrison, trainer of the forty-three racehorses in the stables below. Morrison habitually slept lightly. His ears were sharper than half a dozen guard dogs', his stable-hands said. #Quote by Dick Francis
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Herodotus
#22. Although extraordinary valor was displayed by the entire corps of Spartans and Thespians, yet bravest of all was declared the Spartan Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that the Persian archers were so numerous that, their arrows would block out the sun. Dienekes, however, undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, 'Good. Then we will fight in the shade. #Quote by Herodotus
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Derek Luke
#23. Spartan is about this elite unit of the armed forces named the Delta Force. I play a protege of Val Kilmer's character, and he kind of gives me a hard time. #Quote by Derek Luke
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Eric Nylund
#24. Every other Spartan on the field charged as well, hundreds of half-camouflaged armored figures, running and firing at the dazed Jackals, appearing as a wave of ghost warriors, half liquid, half shadow, part mirage, part nightmare.
They screamed a battle cry, momentarily drowning the sound of gunfire and explosion.
Tom yelled with them--for the fallen, for his friends, and for the blood of his enemies. #Quote by Eric Nylund
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Robyn Benincasa
#25. If there's anyone out there who has taken extreme to a new level, its Joe De Sena - in adventure racing, in business, and ultimately in the business of adventure! Spartan Up! is must-read. #Quote by Robyn Benincasa
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Rosemary Sutcliff
#26. My mother was the perfect Spartan mother. I have always been able to imagine her telling her sons to return from battle 'with their shields, or on them'. She did actually try it on my father at the start of the Second World War. He didn't take it kindly, and confided to me ruefully that he thought she rather fancied herself a Hero's Widow. #Quote by Rosemary Sutcliff
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Jennifer Estep
#27. I'll give you this, Spartan. You sure can kiss. Feel free to lay one on me anytime you want to."
"Well, I do aim to please," he drawled. "You should see what I can do with my hands. And other parts of my body."
I rolled my eyes. "Seriously? You've been cut open like a fish, there's a psycho-killer Reaper after us, and you're still hitting me up for sex?"
Logan shrugged, but the devilish light didn't fade from his gaze. "Hey, you can't blame a guy for trying. #Quote by Jennifer Estep
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Dan Simmons
#28. In the end, it is all we are, these limpid tide pools of self-consciousness between crashing waves of pain. We are destined and designed to bear our pain with us, hugging it tight to our bellies like the young Spartan thief hiding a wolf cub so it can eat away our insides. #Quote by Dan Simmons
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Victoria Escobar
#29. Now I've officially seen everything." Leonidas muttered. "How
often do you see them?"
Ari laughed weakly. "Do nightmares count?"
Leonidas bent down to look in her eyes. "Nightmares always
count. #Quote by Victoria Escobar
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Jennifer Estep
#30. Yeah, you're probably right,' I said, forcing myself to smile at him. Logan grinned back at me. 'Of course, I'm right. I'm always right.' I rolled my eyes, leaned over, and lightly punched him in the shoulder. 'And now you sound like Vic.' 'No, he doesn't,' Vic piped up from his spot in the chair I'd propped him up in. 'I am much more confident than the Spartan is.' He sniffed. 'And with good reason. #Quote by Jennifer Estep
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Christopher Isherwood
#31. Cambridge exceeded our most macabre expectations ... the arm-chairs, the crumpets, the beautifully-bound eighteenth century volumes, the fires roaring in stoked grates. Each of us had the loan of an absent undergraduate's rooms - bedroom, sitting-room and pantry; all fitted up in a style which, after the spartan simplicity of a public school study, seemed positively sinful. #Quote by Christopher Isherwood
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Danika Stone
#32. Liv had made it to Dragon Con. She had people to stay with and money in her pocket. Now all she needed to do was meet Spartan and she could die happy. #Quote by Danika Stone
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Victoria Escobar
#33. It's not a threat. It's simply fact. He is Greek and of a bloodline
nearly as old as yours. He is required to be what he was made to be
whether he wishes it or not. He swims against the current, Ari. He thinks
he can outrun his fate. He cannot. No one can. #Quote by Victoria Escobar
Spartan Leonidas quotes by A.E. Coppard
#34. If he was not exactly a Spartan, he was, you might say, spartanatical. Things happened to you; they were good,or they were bad - and that was the truth about everything. #Quote by A.E. Coppard
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Jennifer Estep
#35. You won't hurt me. I know you won't." Logan said.
"How can you be so sure?" I whispered.
"Because you're that Gypsy girl, and I'm the bad-boy Spartan. And I think it's time we were finally together, don't you? #Quote by Jennifer Estep
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Frank Miller
#36. Xerxes: It isn't wise to stand against me, Leonidas. Imagine what horrible fate awaits my enemies when I would gladly kill any of my own men for victory.
King Leonidas: And I would die for any one of mine. #Quote by Frank Miller
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Toni Aleo
#37. Is she worth it though?" he asked and she shrugged.

"That's up to you to decide. Either way, I support you, love you, and will stand beside you," she whispered against his lips. "And when you're ready, I'll Spartan kick her in the face. #Quote by Toni Aleo
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Jerry Pournelle
#38. To stand on the firing parapet and expose yourself to danger; to stand and fight a thousand miles from home when you're all alone and outnumbered and probably beaten; to spit on your hands and lower the pike; to stand fast over the body of Leonidas the King; to be rear guard at Kunu-Ri; to stand and be still to the Birkenhead Drill; these are not rational acts. They are often merely necessary. #Quote by Jerry Pournelle
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Plutarch
#39. When asked by a woman from Attica:'Why are you Spartan women the only ones who can rule men?', she said: 'Because we are the only ones who give birth to men. #Quote by Plutarch

And the Spartan phalanx lowering lances to die. #Quote by Sappho
Spartan Leonidas quotes by Alice Morse Earle
