"While all answers are replies, not all replies are answers." - Ta'lon, G'kar's bodyguard in Babylon 5
"What do you want, you moon faced assassin of joy!" - Ambassador Londo Molari - Babylon 5
"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
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice.
The language is not Narn, or Human, or Centauri, or Gaim, or Minbari.
It speaks in the language of hope.
It speaks in the language of trust.
It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion.
It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul.
But always it is the same voice.
It is the voice of our ancestors speaking through us.
And the voice of our inheritors waiting to be born,
It is the small, still voice that says,
"We are One;
No matter the blood, no matter the skin,
No matter the world, no matter the star:
We are One.
No matter the pain, no matter the darkness,
No matter the loss, no matter the fear,
We are One."
Here, gathered together in common cause,
we agree to recognize this singular truth:
"That we are one".
And this singular rule:
"That we must be kind to one another.
Because each voice enriches us and ennobles us,
and each voice lost diminishes us.
We are the voice of the universe,
the soul of creation,
The fire that will light the way to a better future,
We are One,
We are One." - Citizen G'kar - "Declaration of Principles" for the newly formed Interstellar Alliance from Babylon 5, "The Paragon of Animals"
"Why does any advanced civilization seek to destroy a less advanced one - because the land is strategically valuable, because there are resources that can be cultivated and exploited, but most of all, simply because they can." - G'kar in Babylon 5, from the Season 2 episode "And now for a word".
"If you are going to be worried every time the universe does not make sense then you are going to be worried everyday for the rest of your life." - G'kar
"Zathras is used to being beast of burden to other people's needs. Very sad life. Probably have very sad death. But, at least there is symmetry." - Zathras
"Why? Only one human Commander has ever defeated the Minbarri in battle. He is behind me, you are in front of me. If you value your life, be somewhere else." - Delenn, "Severed Loyalties".
Marcus is standing in the midst of the unconscious bodies and says, "Bugger! Now I have to wait for someone to wake up!" A moment later Lennier walks in. Marcus sees him and says (in reference to the unconscious patrons),
"You can get more with a kind word and a 2 x 4 than you can get with a kind word alone."
"The truth points to itself." - Kosh
Vir: Kiron may die because our "glorious" tradition values wealth and power over love.
Londo: My shoes are too tight.
Vir: Excuse me?
Londo: Something my father said. He was old, very old at the time. I went into his room, and he was sitting alone in the dark, crying. So I asked him what was wrong, and he said, "My shoes are too tight, but it doesn't matter, because I have forgotten how to dance." I never understood what that meant until now. My shoes are too tight, and I have forgotten how to dance.
Sheridan: "What does the candle represent?"
Sheridan: "Whose life?"
Delenn: "All life, every life. We're all born as molecules in the hearts of a billion stars, molecules that do not understand politics, policies and differences. In a billion years we, foolish molecules forget who we are and where we came from. Desperate acts of ego. We give ourselves names, fight over lines on maps. And pretend our light is better than everyone else's. The flame reminds us of the piece of those stars that live inside us. A spark that tells us: you should know better. The flame also reminds us that life is precious, as each flame is unique. When it goes out, it's gone forever. And there will never be another quite like it. So many candles will go out tonight. I wonder some days if we can see anything at all." - Sheridan and Delenn in "And All My Dreams, Torn Asunder"
"I will tell you a great secret, Captain, perhaps the greatest of all time. The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up this station and the nebula outside that burn inside the stars themselves. We are starstuff. We are the universe made manifest trying to figure itself out." - Delenn, "A Distant Star"
"Christ came to tell us to love one another. In the last 2200 years we've spent killing each other on how he said it." - Max Eilerson (David Allen Brooks) in the Babylon 5 spinoff "Crusade".
