Default A challange for our modern Greek friends

I originally posted this challenge to our modern Greek friends on Maknews several months ago...still with no reply. I'd thought I'd repost it here to see if I have any better luck.

I have seen the below quote supposedly attributed to ancient Roman historian Quintus Curtius Rufus on many modern Greek propaganda sites, all being unreferenced.

Quote:
Holy shadows of the dead, I'm not to blame for your cruel and bitter fate, but the accursed rivalry which brought sister nations and brother people, to fight one another. I do not feel happy for this victory of mine. On the contrary, I would be glad brothers if I had all of you standing here next to me, since we are united by the SAME LANGUAGE , the SAME BLOOD and the SAME VISIONS.
Can any of our modern Greek friends actually include a correct reference for this quote???

Also...can you please give the quote in its full context if it truelly does exist???

This particular quote a (I am sure it is the same one) was actually advertised as basically the motto for the maggotsontheweb forum for a good year and was attributed to Alexander the Great. I gave up asking about it long ago, they seem to have changed it after about a good year's worth of lies to its readers.
