Memorable Ben Hur lines

Judah Ben-Hur: If that is the choice, then I am against you.

Judah Ben-Hur: If you were not a bride I should kiss you goodbye.
Esther: If I were not a bride, there would be no goodbyes to be said.

Judah Ben-Hur: No! I warn you! Rome is an affront to God! Rome is strangling my people and my country, the whole Earth! But not forever. I tell you the day Rome falls there will be a shout of freedom such as the world has never heard before!

Judah Ben-Hur: May God grant me vengeance. I will pray that you live until I return.
Massala: Return?

Judah Ben-Hur: God, help me.

Quintus Arrius: Your eyes are full of hate, forty-one. That's good. Hate keeps a man alive. It gives him strength.
Now listen to me, all of you. You are all condemned men. We keep you alive to serve this ship. So row well, and live.

Quintus Arrius: Battle speed..... Attack speed...... Ramming Speed....... Rest.

Quintus Arrius: In his eagerness to save you, your god has also saved the Roman fleet.

Tiberius Caesar: If not, there is a strange inconsistency in this man, who tries to kill my governor, yet saves the life of my consul. Come tomorrow, and we will talk of him.

Sheikh: Bravely spoken.

Judah Ben-Hur: Yes, this is the day.

Massala: The race is not over.

Pontius Pilate: A grown man knows the world he lives in. For the present, that world is Rome.

Miriam: I am afraid.
Esther: No cause. The world is more than we know.
