Invictus (film) Quotes

He's freaking killing us. But listen, if Lomu gets the ball, whoever's there -- James, Joost -- hit the fucking guy, hold onto him, hold him. Help will come, help will be there."
  • (Matt Damon) "I may break my arm, my leg, my neck, but I will not let that freaking guy go."

Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela

  • (Morgan Freeman) "You criticize without understanding. You seek only to address your own personal feelings. That is selfish thinking, Zindzi. It does not serve the nation."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "If I cannot change when circumstances demand it, how can I expect others to?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Forgiveness liberates the soul. It removes fear. That is why it is such a powerful weapon."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "I thank whatever gods may be / For my unconquerable soul. / I am the master of my fate / I am the captain of my soul."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Forgiveness starts here too."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Perhaps we should make a little wager?"
  • (New Zealand PM) "All your gold for all our sheep?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Well, I was thinking more along the lines of a case of wine."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "I have a very large family, 42 million --"
  • (Television Announcer) "Tell us Mr. President, have you always been a rugby fan?"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "People don't realize that I played rugby myself when I was a student at Fort Hare. It is a very rough game, almost as rough as politics."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Brothers, sisters, comrades: I am here because I believe you have made a decision with insufficient information and foresight. I am aware of your earlier vote. I am aware that it was unanimous. Nonetheless, I believe we should restore the Springboks; restore their name, their emblem and their colors, immediately. Let me tell you why. On Robben Island, in Pollsmoor Prison, all of my jailers were Afrikaners. For 27 years, I studied them. I learned their language, read their books, their poetry. I had to know my enemy before I could prevail against him. And we DID prevail, did we not? All of us here -- we prevailed. Our enemy is no longer the Afrikaner. They are our fellow South Africans, our partners in democracy. And they treasure Springbok rugby. If we take that away, we lose them. We prove that we are what they feared we would be. We have to be better than that. We have to surprise them with compassion, with restraint and generosity; I know, all of the things they denied us. But this is no time to celebrate petty revenge. This is the time to build our nation using every single brick available to us, even if that brick comes wrapped in green and gold. You elected me your leader. Let me lead you now."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "How do you inspire your team to do their best?"
  • (Matt Damon) "By example. I've always thought to lead by example, sir."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Well, that is right. That is exactly right. But how do we get them to be better then they think they CAN be? That is very difficult, I find. Inspiration, perhaps. How do we inspire ourselves to greatness when nothing less will do? How do we inspire everyone around us? I sometimes think it is by using the work of others."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "Out of the night that covers me, black as the pit from pole to pole / I thanks whatever gods may be, for my unconquerable soul. / In the fell clutch of circumstance, I have not winced nor cried aloud / Under the bludgeonings of fate, my head is bloody, but unbowed. / Beyond this place of wrath and tears, looms but the horror of the shade / and yet, the menace of the years finds, and shall find me, unafraid. / It matters not how strait the gate, how charged with punishment the scroll / I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul."

Adjoa Andoh as Brenda Mazibuko

  • (Adjoa Andoh) "You're risking your political capital, you're risking your future as our leader."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "The day I am afraid to do that is the day I am no longer fit to lead."
  • (Adjoa Andoh) "I'm sorry, Madiba, but we've got problems everywhere we look: housing, food, jobs, crime, our currency. You can't keep interrupting affairs of state to placate a minority."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "But I must. Because that minority still controls the police, the army, and the economy. If we lose them, we cannot address the other issues."
  • (Adjoa Andoh) "So, this rugby is a politcal solution --"
  • (Morgan Freeman) "It is a HUMAN solution."

Marguerite Wheatley as Nerine

  • (Marguerite Wheatley) "Thinking about tomorrow?"
  • (Matt Damon) "No. Tomorrow's taken care of, one way or another. I was thinking about how you spend 30 years in a tiny cell, and come out ready to forgive the people who put you there."
  • (Marguerite Wheatley) "So, what's he like?"
  • (Matt Damon) "He's unlike any person I've ever met."

Matt Stern as Hendrick Booyens

  • (Matt Stern) "He's not as big as he looks on TV."

Julian Lewis Jones as Etienne Feyder

  • (Julian Lewis Jones) "When does he take a break?"
  • (Staff Member) "He says he rested enough in prison."

Tony Kgoroge as Jason Tshabalala

  • (Tony Kgoroge) "I wonder what it says --"
  • (Morgan Freeman) ""He may win an election, but can he run a country?""
  • (Tony Kgoroge) "Not even your first day on the job, and they're already after you."
  • (Morgan Freeman) "It's a legitimate question --"
