I woke, she fled, and day brought back my night.edgar allen poe
Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
one for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
in the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all,
one Ring to find them,
one Ring to bring them
all and in the darkness bind them
in the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.J.R.R. Tolkien, "Lord of the Rings"
Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger.J.R.R. Tolkien, "The Fellowship of the Ring"
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
Crom, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one, not even you, will remember if we were good men or bad. Why we fought, and why we died. All that matters is that today, two stood against many. Valor pleases you, so grant me this one request. Grant me revenge!
And if you do not listen, the HELL with you!Conan, "Conan The Barbarian"
"I have seen the universe yawning
Where the black planets roll without aim -
Where they roll in their horror unheeded,
Without knowledge or luster or name."Cthulhu Mythos

"In the beginning there was Chaos,
And within this Chaos was Power,
Great Power without Form.
Yet within Chaos there was Motion,
And within Motion was Form,
And within this Motion were the Words,
Which shaped the Motion, and gave it Form.
And the Great Speakers were awakened,
And the Great Words were spoken,
And the Great Magick was wrought,
The Birth of the World.
And in the Image of the Great Speakers were we awakened,
And in the Image of the Great Words have we spoken,
And in the image of the Great Magick have we wrought our world.
As it is said, so shall it be done."
from The Verrah Rubricon of Verena, Book One, "The History of the World."

"The Lords of Chaos are
the enemies of Logic,
the jugglers of Truth,
the molders of Beauty"Michael Moorcock, The Knight of the Swords
I am the angel of death. The time of purification is at hand.
The warlike days are over. Blood is too precious a thing in these days of dishonourable peace; and the glories of the great races are as a tale that is told.
There is a tower in the Emperor's palace called the Tower of Heroes: a black tower which rises high into the sky like a spike. At the summit of that tower hangs the Bell of Lost Souls. It is an ancient thing, massive as a building and adorned with dark runes, its peal like the scream of an anguished god. It is tolled but once when a great hero of the Imperium dies. Its wailing moan of grief lasts long and reaches the ears of millions, and its tones penetrate the unifying ether of humanity turning the thought of countless billions towards mankind's loss.Warhammer 40.000
Through the gates that stand between the mortal world and the immortal Realm of Chaos are now closed to me, still I would rather die having glimpsed eternity than never to have stirred the cold furrow of mortal life.
I embrace death without regret as I embraced life without fear.Kargos Bloodspitter, Champion of Khorne
