Favourite QuotesEdit

The ones marked with an asterisk (*) are ones I first found here, on Wikiquote.

  • "I have seen belief move cities, make man stave-off death, and turn an evil hag's heart half-circle. This entire fortress has been constructed from belief. Belief damned a woman, whose heart clung to the hope that another loved her when he did not. Once, it has made a man seek immortality and achieve it."
-The Nameless One in Planescape: Torment (Black Isle)

  • "The genius of the hole - no matter how long you spend climbing out, you can still fall back down in an instant."

Just Bloody BeautifulEdit

  • "She was beautiful. I hated her for making me feel this way." (Quite corny, but beautiful nonetheless.)
  • "This is love - when someone drags you from the wreckage after you've given in, ready to just lie there and die.

This is love. Love hurts." (You had to hear it in the original context to understand...)
- Max Payne in Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne (Remedy Entertainment).
  • "And there are lines upon my face \ From a lifetime of smiles."
- Beautiful in my Eyes by Joshua Kadison
