(Think 'Mexican Accent' for this...)
"Say hallo to my leetle friend!" - WarCraft 2, I think.

"Give me somethin' to shoot!" - Siege Tank, StarCraft

I can't quote this next word for word, but for all those who have seen 'From Dusk 'til Dawn' . . . . the entire speech that ends "...if you can find cheaper p&^$y anywhere else, f%$k it!" I'm sorry, but you've got to admit, that was a classic piece!

"You've gotta ask yourself one question, 'Do I feel lucky?' well, punk, do ya?" - Clint Eastwood, Dirty Harry. And yes, it's a BFG!!!

"And again, we play our dangerous game. A game of chess against our old adversary - the American Navy. For fourty years, your fathers and older brothers played it - and played it well. But now, the game has changed. We have the advantage. That reminds me of the great days of Sputnik and Jurij Gagarin, when the world trembled from the sounds of our rockets. It will tremble again - from the sound of our silence. [...] We will lay of their largest city and listen to their rock and roll, while we conduct missile drills. And when we are finished, we will sail to Havanna, where the sun is hot, as well as our comradship.
On this day, we sail into history!"
Captain Marko Ramius, Skipper of the Red October, (Tom Clancy's Hunt for Red October)

^Nice, Harrie. I must remember the second & third ones . . . . 8) Especially the third . . . . :twisted:

"YOU SHALL NOT PASS!" - Gandalf.

Two roads diverged in a wood,
And I, I took the one less travelled by
And it has made all the difference.

Swiftly, swiftly flew the ship,
Yet she sailed softly too.
Sweetly, sweetly blew the breeze,
On me alone it blew.

I know this;
I have doubts about life, but none about death.
I have hopes about death, but none about life.
- Song lyrics from a friend's CD. Disturbing, what?

ROAD LESS TRAVELED

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth

Then took the other as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet, knowing how way leads onto way
I doubted if I should ever come back

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence
Two roads diverged in a wood
And I took the one less traveled by
And that has made all the difference

Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind.

If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, just what does an empty desk mean?
Author Unknown

Once you've accumulated sufficient knowledge to get by, you're too old to remember it.
Unknown

The best way to keep children at home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant - and let the air out of the tires.

A man on a date wonders if he'll get lucky. The woman already knows.
Monica Piper - Oh, so true!

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
James Magary

Don't spend $2 to dry clean a shirt. Instead, donate it to the Salvation Army. They'll clean it and put it on a hanger. The next morning buy it back for seventy- five cents.
William Coronel

It is always the best policy to tell the truth, unless, of course, you are an exceptionally good liar.
Jerome K Jerome

The safest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it in your pocket.

"Babylon 5 was the last of the Babylon stations. There would never be another. It changed the future .. and it changed us. It taught us that we have to create the future .. or others will do it for us. It showed us that we have care for one another, because if we don't, who will? And that true strength sometimes comes from the most unlikely places. Mostly, though, I think it gave us hope .. that there can always be new beginnings .. even for people like us."

-- General Ivanova in Babylon 5:"Sleeping in Light"


"The universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. The language is not narn or human or centauri or gaim or minbari. It speaks in the language of hope."
"It speaks in the language of trust. It speaks in the language of strength and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors speaking through us and the voice of our inheritors waiting to be born. The small, still voice that says: 'We are one. No matter the blood, no matter the skin, no matter the world, no matter the star. .. We are one. No matter the pain, no matter the darkness, no matter the loss, no matter the fear. .. We are one.' Here, gathered together in common cause, we begin to realize this singular truth and this singular rule that we must be kind to one another. Because each voice enriches us and ennobles us and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light our way to a better future. We are one."
"We are one."

-- Sheridan / G'Kar in Babylon 5

"Of course the people don't want war. But after all, it's the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."
-- Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials
