(And if they upset you, I'm here to talk to.)
"Patiently and gently, I share with the others the way to scatter the seeds a few at a time, evenly between the rows so that each one will have enough space. I tell them not every seed will make it but all of them deserve a chance to grow."
- Superman, Superman: Peace on Earth
"Do you wanna know something funny? Even after everything you've done, I would have saved you."

- Uber-Morlock, Time Machine (2002)
"Existence is random. Has no pattern save what we imagine after staring at it for too long. No meaning save what we chose to impose. This rudderless world is not shaped by vague metaphysical forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It's us. Only us."
- Rorschach, Watchmen
"Thermo-Dynamic Miracles. Events with odds against so astronomical they're effectively impossible, like oxygen spontaneously becoming gold. I long to observe such a thing. And yet, in each human coupling, a thousand million sperm vie for a single egg. Multiply those odds by countless generations against the odds of your ancestors being alive; meeting; siring this precise son; that exact daughter until your mother loves a man she has every reason to hate, and of that union, of the thousand million children competing for fertilization, it was you, only you, that emerged. To distill so specific a form from that chaos of improbability, like turning air to gold, that is the crowning unlikelihood. The Thermo-Dynamic Miracle."
- Doctor Manhattan, Watchmen
"You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought: wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe."
- Marcus Cole, Babylon 5
"Live long and prosper."

"Space: The final frontier. These are the continuing voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its continuing mission: To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilisations, to boldly go where no one has gone before."
- Narration from Star Trek
"'With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censored, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied chains us all irrevocably'... The first time any man's freedom is trodden on, we're all damaged."
- Captain Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek: The Next Generation
"The road to Hell is paved with good intentions."
"I am female. I was born that way. I have had those feelings, those longings, all of my life. It is not unnatural. I am not sick because I feel this way. I do not need to be helped. I do not need to be cured. What I need, and what all of those who are like me need, is your understanding. And your compassion. We have not injured you in any way. And yet we are scorned and attacked. And all because we are different. What we do is no different from what you do. We talk and laugh. We complain about work. And we wonder about growing old. We talk about our families and we worry about the future. And we cry with each other when things seem hopeless. All of the loving things that you do with each other, that is what we do. And for that we are called misfits, and deviants and criminals. What right do you have to punish us? What right do you have to change us? What makes you think you can dictate how people love each other?"
- Soren, Star Trek: The Next Generation
"Reach for the stars. And even if you don't reach the stars, you can still hit the moon on your way back down."

"Can't deny a man his dyin' wish."
- John Marston when challenged to a duel, Red Dead Redemption
"He tasks me. He tasks me, and I shall have him. I'll chase him 'round the moons of Nibia, and 'round the Antares maelstrom, and 'round Perdition's flames before I give him up."
- Kahn Noonien Singh, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
"You're gonna regret this the rest of your life. Both seconds of it."
- John Spartan, Demolition Man
"So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon became inevitable."
- Christopher Reeve
"Good has no demographic."
- Jayson Thiessen
"Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy to finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one area where I truly belonged. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realized, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter, and a big idea. And so rock bottom became a solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life."
- J. K. Rowling

- Albert Einstein

"Three passions have governed my life:
The longings for love, the search for knowledge,
And unbearable pity for the suffering of [humankind].
Love brings ecstasy and relieves loneliness.
In the union of love I have seen
In a mystic miniature the prefiguring vision
Of the heavens that saints and poets have imagined.
With equal passion I have sought knowledge.
I have wished to understand the hearts of [people].
I have wished to know why the stars shine.
Love and knowledge led upwards to the heavens,
But always pity brought me back to earth;
Cries of pain reverberated in my heart
Of children in famine, of victims tortured
And of old people left helpless.
I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot,
And I too suffer.
This has been my life; I found it worth living."
The best ideas
are born from the sharpest of minds
Minds honed and exercised
trained and developed
Poised to create
The creator of ideas
is the god of new beings
A God worthy of praise
Worthy of faith
Worthy of worship
But these gods are human
human after all
Just. like. us.
They have just found a way
A way to touch us
A way to rise above and impress and amaze and inspire
A way to give us all a shining light to motivate and energise us
They have found a way
Be a God.
