“You threatened my world with war. You might not be glad that you did.”
– Nick Fury

“Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?”
― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Change is the principal feature of our age and literature should explore how people deal with it. The best science fiction does that, head-on.
David Brin

HAL - 2001 Space Odyssey
"Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death."
Cornelius, - Planet of the Apes 1968

My favorite quotes always seem to come from Babylon 5. Loved this show to bad it was one of those with a final ending .

Ta'Lon: Congratulations citizen G'Kar. You are now a religious icon.
Ambassador Londo Mollari: Ah, arrogance and stupidity all in the same package. How efficient of you!
Captain John Sheridan: Are you trying to cheer me up?
Susan Ivanova: No sir, wouldn't dream of it.
Captain John Sheridan: Good, I hate being cheered up.
Susan Ivanova: In that case we're all going to die slow, agonizing deaths.
Captain John Sheridan: Thank you, I feel so much better now.
Commander Jeffrey David Sinclair: Everyone lies, Michael. The innocent lie because they don't want to be blamed for something they didn't do and the guilty lie because they don't have any other choice.

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
one for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
in the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all,
one Ring to find them,
one Ring to bring them
all and in the darkness bind them
in the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
J.R.R. Tolkien, "Lord of the Rings"

Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, and why we died. All that matters is that today, two stood against many. Valor pleases you, so grant me this one request. Grant me revenge!
And if you do not listen, the HELL with you!
Conan, "Conan The Barbarian"

With great power, comes great responsibility.
Uncle Ben, Spider-Man

From Foundation and Earth (1986) by Isaac Asimov. This is one of my all time favorite authors and all time favorite book series even though some of the older books are a little dated the morals behind them and the message still resonates till this day

Human beings are very conservative in some ways and virtually never change numerical conventions once they grow used to them. They even come to mistake them for laws of nature.
If we only obey those rules that we think are just and reasonable, then no rule will stand, for there is no rule that some will not think is unjust and unreasonable.
It is its rules that hold society together and bind it into a whole. Is it such a light thing to disregard the rules for trivial reasons?
Superstition always directs action in the absence of knowledge.

"It's all so brief, isn't it? Typical human lifespan is almost a hundred years, but it's barely a second compared to what's out there. It wouldn't be so bad if life didn't take so long to figure out. Seems you just start to get it right and then .. it's over."
"Doesn't matter. If we lived two hundred years, we'd still be human.
We'd still make the same mistakes." "You're a pessimist."
"I am Russian, Doctor. We understand these things."
Dr. Stephen Franklin Lt. Commander Susan Ivanova, Soul Hunter Babylon 5
"You still haven't told me when the commander is due back?"
"Soon."
"How soon is soon?"
"Longer than little while, faster than later."
Mary Ann Cramer and Security Chief Michael Garibaldi, Infection
Babylon 5
"Ambassador, it is not my place to speculate on how anything gets in your bed."
Aide Na'Toth to G'Kar,The Parliament of Dreams Babylon 5
