Themistocles of Athens Quotes:

  • Themistocles of Athens: The whole of Asia is descending upon us. Many times more men than there are Greeks. These men are fierce, savage, bloodthirsty, merciless. But that is not the reason why we should fear them. That is not the source of their power. Their power lies in their unity. Unity! Remember that one terrible word which will surely destroy Greece, unless we counter it with a unity of our own. A unity of free men fighting together resisting this united tide of tyranny.

  • Leonidas, Spartan King: A Spartan king cannot act without the authority of his people. But I know my people, and I know they will fight.

    Themistocles of Athens: Will they lead all others?

    Leonidas, Spartan King: Sparta will fight, whether others will follow or not.

  • Themistocles of Athens: Truth is a heady wine. A politician must never exaggerate people's capacity for it.
