That's an epic line from 300. I watch like 300 movies a week, your mod allusions aren't going to fool me.

Something to do with sweet (dulce = sweet)

Also it is either a poem or movie, going off the pattern.

This one is a poem by Wilfred Owen in 1917 during the first world war. What's with the poems? :?:

We shall fight on beaches, landing grounds, in fields, in streets and on the hills. We shall never surrender.

I see the parallels. I think I'm starting to get what's going on. Just need a different clue and I think I'll put it together. I'm not going to post my analysis...yet.

You don't need to post any more epic lines, I understand their connection.

This is part of Winston Churchill's speech during WWII.
