"The measure of a man is how far he is willing to go to satisfy his will."
"A successful negotiation is as much a matter of military strength looming to one side of the table as it is of cunning and diplomacy at the
"Your foe is well equipped, well-trained, battle-hardened. He believes his gods are on his side. Let him believe what he will. We have the tanks on
— Colonel Joachim Pfeiff, Krieg 14th Armoured Regiment
"The most dangerous weapon this galaxy has ever produced is faith. All other force is merely a shadow of what that terrible power can achieve."
"Speed is life" - Israeli Air Force
"There exists out there in the unbroached void of night and in the deeper darkness beyond, things so terrible and vile they would devour us and
destroy everything we have made. And why? Because they fear us and rightly so. For we are humanity and the stars are ours." - Lord Solar Macharius,
On the Eve of the Macharius Crusade
"Once we were Gods, but what are we now? Willfully ignorant savages and self-deluded fools, little more than helpless children scattered and lost in
the cold dark. But I tell you, we have been Gods and we shall be Gods again."
"The Inquisition is a hundred different schools of thought, divided by a single goal."
“You accuse me of being a madman. What right have you to judge what is sane and what is not? I have fought with the shadows on the edge of your
vision. I have seen the faces that laugh at you in your nightmares. I have felt the fetid breath that issues from the mouth of hell itself. I have
heard the silent voices that make your spine tingle with dread. I have entered the realms between worlds where there is no time or place. I have
clashed with creatures the sight of which would sear your soul to the core. I have bested horrors that chill with a gaze of tempt unreasoning terror.
I have faced death eye-to-eye and blade to blade. I have stared into the eyes of insanity and met their all-consuming stare. I have done all this for
you; for your protection and guarantee of a future for Mankind. And yet you accuse me of being a madman, you, who have never had your sanity tested so
sorely. What right have you to call me a heretic and blasphemer, who have not heard the whisper of dark gods in your ear? You are weak. Vulnerable.
Human is your frailty. I am strong, yet you still judge me for my sins, you who art most sinful to the heart. Only the insane have the strength enough
to prosper; only those that prosper truly judge what is sane.” – Inquisitor Felroth Gelt
"We need spies that look like their targets, CIA officers who speak the dialects terrorists use, and FBI agents who can speak to Muslim women who
might be intimidated by men." - Jane Harman
"We need to strengthen the position of the director of the CIA." - Bob Graham
"The CIA is made up of boys whose families sent them to Princeton but wouldn't let them into the family brokerage business." - Lyndon B. Johnson
"Do we belong there or do we not? It doesn't matter how you would answer that because we are there. We're tired, and we can't see the end. We
can't even console ourselves that our enemy is just as tired as we are. Because they're not. It is a fallacy that prolonged war will weaken an
occupied enemy. It most likely will make your enemy stronger. They get used to the deprivation, and they adapt and respond accordingly. While here at
home with every death reported we have to deal with a public-opinion trajectory that slides rapidly from supportive to negative to downright hostile.
People just get sick and tired of a moment's silence at a ball game.They just wanna be told that it's over." - Ed Hoffman
"Our enemy has realized that they are fighting guys from the future. Now, ahem, it is as brilliant as it is infuriating. If you live like it's the
past, and you behave like it's the past then guys from the future find it very hard to see you. If you throw away your cell phone, shut down your
e-mail pass all your instructions face-to-face, hand-to-hand turn your back on technology and just disappear into the crowd No flags. No uniforms. You
got your basic grunts on the ground there. They're looking going, "Who is it we're fighting?" In a situation like this, your friends dress just
like your enemies and your enemies dress like your friends. What I need you to fully understand is that these people, they do not wanna negotiate. Not
at all. They want the universal caliphate established across the face of the Earth and they want every infidel converted or dead. So, what's changed
is that our allegedly unsophisticated enemy has caughten on to the factually unsophisticated truth...we're an easy target. We are an easy target and
our world as we know it is a lot simpler to put to an end than you might think." - Ed Hoffman
"People are stupid. Torture doesn't work. Under torture, a man will say almost anything to make the pain stop. You have experience with this, I am
sure." - Hani Salaam
"Ed Hoffman is the head of the division but he does not know enough until he steals it from the guy on the ground and that's me." - Roger Ferris
