I love good quotes so I am making a thread to see if people will share some.  I'll start


"We ought to deprecate the hazard attending ardent and susceptible minds, from being too strongly, and too early prepossessed in favor of other political systems, before they are capable of appreciating their own."

"I have never been so well pleased as when I could shift power from my own, on the shoulders of others; nor have I ever been able to conceive how any rational being could propose happiness to himself from the exercise of power over others."

Yazoo: Hey, Kadaj, is this where Big Brother lives?

Kadaj: Yeah...

Yazoo: You think he'll be happy to see us?

Kadaj: Heh, not a chance.

Loz: Don't cry, Yazoo.

Yazoo: But Mother's with him.

Kadaj: Maybe not...

Loz: (starts to cry)

Yazoo: Don't cry, Loz.

Kadaj: Look, here he comes...

Rufus: Will you join us former SOLDIER... Cloud? Cloud: Hmph...In my head...

Cloud: What's this stuff about "Mother"?

Rufus: Why? did Kadaj mention something?

Cloud: Rufus, if you're hiding something...

Rufus: I'd never keep a secret, not from a comrade.

Cloud: Hmph.

Rufus: You must want to learn all you can about the stigma. Naturally for the sake of those orphan you're living with. Surely you long to see the smiles return to their faces. All we want in the end, is to rebuild our world, Cloud...

Cloud: ... But I....

Reno: C'mon, Cloud! Think about it, together we can rebuild Shin-Ra!

Cloud: Not interested... [Door begins to close, locking out Reno again] Rude,

Rufus: Reno!

Aerith: You came...even though you're about to break... But that's probably a good sign. So...why did you come?

Cloud: I think...I want to be forgiven...More than anything...

Aerith: By who...?

Cloud Strife: Are sins ever forgiven?

Vincent Valentine: ...I've never tried.

Cloud Strife: You mean ... never tried.

Cloud Strife[to Marlene] Marlene, let's go.

Cloud Strife[to Vincent] Well I'm going to try. [he begins to walk away...after a slight pause]

Cloud Strife: I'll phone in the verdict.

Cloud: But...I let you die.

Aerith: Dilly dally, shilly shally! Isn't it time you did the forgiving?

[The Turks confront Bahamut Sin]

Reno: Hello...

Rude: ...Hell-no. [They both flee]

[After grabbing the kids and running from Bahamut]

Reno: Is it after us?! Rude: I'm not lookin'!

Yuffie: Alright, who's been touching my materia? Tifa: The bad guys, naturally. Yuffie: Ohhhhhhhh! [Attacks Bahamut Sin]

Reno: Mother, shmother. It's Jenova's friggin' head! Loz: Hey! Yazoo: I will not have you refer to Mother that way! Loz: You meanie! Rude: Our apologies. Reno: Your ma's cool.... what the hell am I saying?! [Reno and Rude get in good clean hits on both Yazoo and Loz]

Kadaj: Heh! This is too fun, sir! Any requests for the next act. [Rufus pulls away his blanket to reveal the case with Jenova's remains] Kadaj: Mother! Rufus: A good son would have known.

Reno: Hey, partner, this thing got any bite to it? [points at bomb in hand] Rude: Shin-Ra technology at its finest. Reno: Oh, so you made this? Rude: If nothing else it's ... flashy. Reno[smiles] Oh good... Rude: You love it, I know. Reno: Looks like today we're clocking out early.

Kadaj: Brother! I'm with her at last.

Cloud Strife: So what's going to happen now? Kadaj[giggles] Mother's going to tell me.

Cloud Strife: I guess a remnant wouldn't really know. [Kadaj glares at Cloud menacingly]

Kadaj: So what if I'm a puppet? [Kadaj powers up the materia in his arm]

Kadaj: Once upon a were too! [attacks Cloud]

Yuffie: Cloud! I brought the Materia! [airship rocks] Whoa! Hey, watch it!

Barret: Yo, Cid, park this thing!

Cid: Shut up. You want off, then jump. Get off my back.

Vincent: He can handle this alone.

Yuffie: Huh?!

Vincent: Kadaj is a remnant of Sephiroth. Think of him as some sort of larval form.

Yuffie: LARVA?! You mean he's an insect?!

Cait Sith: Lassie, shut your gob!

Cid: So the bug's gonna become Sephiroth?

Tifa: Vincent, does Cloud know about Kadaj?

Vincent: One would think.

Tifa: Then you're right, it's his fight now.

Yuffie: What?! I don't get it! Why can't we help out?!

Cid: This is man talk.

Yuffie: Sexist! SEXIST!!

Cait Sith: Lassie! Shut your gob! Barret: Men don't get it either.

Tifa: Two years ago ... think of the strength we all had when we fought that last battle. It's only been a couple of years, but already that feeling is gone. But Cloud, I think he's found it again.

Barret: Pssh. He's got ten minutes.

Yuffie: That Cloud is a royal pain in the **bleep**, like always.

Tifa[Smiles] Cloud is Cloud.

Sephiroth: Good to see you, Cloud. [throws Cloud to the top of a building and follows him] Your Geostigma is gone. That's too bad. Cloud Strife: Sephiroth, what do you want?

Sephiroth: The last thoughts of Geostigma's dead. Those remnants will join the Lifestream and girdle the planet -- choking it; corroding it. What I want, Cloud, is to sail the darkness of the cosmos with this Planet as my vessel -- just as my mother did long ago. [summons dark magic to turn the sky darker] Then one day we'll find a new planet, and on its soil we'll create a shining future.

Cloud Strife: What about this planet? Sephiroth: Well, that's up to you, Cloud.

[fight begins]

Sephiroth[amused] Ooh? Where did you find this strength?

Cloud Strife: I'm not about to tell you!

Sephiroth: Is this the pain you felt before...Cloud? Let me remind you. This time, you won't forget.

[Sephiroth stabs his sword into Clouds right shoulder]

Sephiroth: Tell me what you cherish most.

[Cloud grips Sephiroth's sword]

Sephiroth: Give me the pleasure of taking it away.

[Cloud, remembering his loved ones, pulls Sephiroth's sword out of his arm]

Cloud: I pity you. You just don't get it at all. There's not a thing I don't cherish! [attacks Sephiroth to finish the battle]

Cloud: Stay where you belong... in my memories.

Sephiroth: I will... never be a memory. [changes back into Kadaj]

Cloud Strife[drifting in and out of consciousness; Aerith's hand caresses his forehead] Mother...?

Aerith Gainsborough: Again? Why is everyone calling me their mother lately?

Zack Fair: I guess they must be fond of you.

Aerith Gainsborough[laughs] This one's too big to adopt.

Zack Fair[to Cloud] Tough luck, friend. Looks like you don't have a place here.

I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do. -- Edward Everett Hale

[Xuchilbara smothers himself in Sweet Poison 13 times] Aaah, so refreshing :smileyhappy:

"People assume that 'time' is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint, it's more like a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff"  - The Doctor (David Tennant)


"First things, first, but not necessarily in that order" - The Doctor (Jon Pertwee)
