From the movie Troy: Thetis: If you stay here, with me, with your family, you'll have a long, peaceful life. You'll marry, you'll have children, and your children will have children. They'll love you, and when you're gone they'll remember you. But when your children are dead, and their children after them, your name will be lost. If you go to Troy, no one will earn more glory than you. Men will tell stories of your victories for thousands of years. The world will remember your name. But if you go to Troy, you'll never come home. You'll die there. Achilles: And you know this, mother? Thetis: I know it. Is there a time for sacrifice, a time to die because of the following glory and change for the best for the many or is all about self preservation?
