"Our Only Hope is Insane Leadership"
"If we could just find out who's in charge, we could kill him."
-George Carlin

"Too much is the same as not enough"
-Musashi Miyamoto

"Generally in war the best policy is to take a state intact; to ruin it is inferior to this. To capture the enemy's army is better than to destroy it; to take intact a battalion, a company or a five-man squad is better than to destroy them. For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill."
-Sun Tzu

"I'd like to live just long enough to be there when they cut off your head and stick it on a pike as a warning to the next ten generations that some favors come with too high a price."
-Vir Cotto

"Gentlemen of the jury: The best friend a man has in the world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter that he has raised with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has, he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it most. A man's reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees and do us honor when success is with us, may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our heads.
The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog. A man's dog stands beside him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry wins blow and the snow drives fiercly, if only he may be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings, and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens.
If fortune drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him, to guard him against danger, to fight against his enemies. And when the last scene of all comes, and death takes his master in its embrace and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by the graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad, but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even in death."
-George Graham Vest

"There can be no revolution without music."
-Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

"Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds."
-Albert Einstein

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
-The Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear, Dune


The Swordsworn Chapter WAAAAAAGH! GOBSMASH

Some of these are from uncyclopedia but i still find them true:

"You don't have to have a good theory to be a good scientist. Just one that can't be proven wrong until years after you're dead!"
-Albert Einsten

"Death of a man is a tragedy, death of milions is a statistic"
-Stalin i think, it's from CoD

Call this one racist, but it was pretty good.
"Americans have different ways of saying things. They say "elevator", we say "lift" ... they say "President", we say "stupid psychopathic git."
Alexai Sayle

And I bet this one's already been said.
"When you kill one person, it is a tradegy. When you kill ten million, it is just a statistic."
Joseph Stalin.

"War is not nice."
Barbara Bush.
You don't say.

"Are you crazy? Is that your problem?"
Jack Burton

Quote:
*sigh* I have to point out that despite what you see in games, lasrifles win wars. Just because lasrifles suck at killing superhuman killing machines in power armor does not mean that they are bad weapons. You are shooting them at the wrong targets. The most common enemy the Imperium faces is lightly armored humans armed with lasguns or autoguns, NOT SPACE MARINES.

"Revenge is a dish best served cold." -Josepf Stalin. Yes, Stalin. We attribute it to the Klingons because Stalin was a bad man. But you had to admit, he said some cool stuff.
