    "Between heaven and hell, amidst the clouds and the fires, disclosed by
    guilty and innocent stands fallen angels and fugitive demons - God's wicked
    children."
    - Edgar Allan Poe

    "Why are you people still alive?!?!?!

    "Your life is the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the programming of the matrix. You are the eventuality of an anomaly, which despite my sincerest efforts I have been unable to eliminate from what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision. While it remains a burden to sedulously avoid it, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of control. Which has led you, enexorably, here."
    –-The Architect

    - Avery Brooks as Comdr. Benjamin Sisko on the Television Show " Star Trek: Deep Space Nine", episode "Emissary."

    "Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It
    depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The
    person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in.
    He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong
    sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own
    pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within
    himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man."
    - From "Collected Sayings of Muad'Dib", by the Princess Irulan

    --

    "Life...is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless,
    perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for. Unreturnable,
    because all you get back is another box of chocolates. So, you're
    stuck with this undefinable whipped mint crap that you mindlessly
    wolf down when there's nothing else left to eat. Sure, once in a
    while, there's a peanut butter cup, or an english toffee, but
    they're gone too fast, and the taste is...fleeting. So you end up
    with nothing but broken bits filled with hardened jelly and
    teeth-shattering nuts. And if you're desperate enough to eat
    those, all you've got left is an empty box filled with useless
    brown paper wrappers."
    - The Cigarette Smoking Man, X-Files: Musings of a CSM

    --

    "You have conquered, and I yield. Yet, henceforward, art thou also dead --
    dead to the World, to Heaven, and to Hope! In me didst thou exist -- and, in
    my death, see by this image, which is thine own, how utterly though hast murdered
    thyself."
    -Edgar Allen Poe

    --

    "You told me why you hate magic. You never asked why I hate the church. I'll tell
    you why. It's because you're closed-minded, intolerant, dogmatic, and most of all,
    you're amateurs."
    -Jeff Grubb, The Gathering Dark

    --

    "I am not ressurected through my own power. I am ressurected
    through human desires. For power, they steal and to them power
    becomes justice. That's the reason I'm here. Do you not
    have any desires? You humans develop according to desire, and
    come to me after losing your faith. Can you really call me
    evil?"
    - Count Dracula

    --

    "Shouldn't a God be above those he oversees? To be omniscient
    and omnipotent? Even a good God distances himself from those
    he protects, and strikes down upon them with his wrath when
    they displease him. Such is the nature of a God. Is it not
    natural that I do the same thing?"
    - Kesnick Vaspleck

    --

    "It is better to take what does not belong to you, rather than to leave
    it lying there neglected."
    - Mark Twain
