By far my favorite quotes are jhonsons or arbiters and it is always fun to use them on pepole like " were it so easy"
I want to know what you think
These are among my favorite,
"Shipmaster, they outnumber us three to one!"
Rtas - "Then it is an easy fight"
The Gravemind - "If you will not hear the truth, then I will show it to you. There is still time to stop the key from turning, but first, it must be found. You will search one likely spot... and you will search another. Fate had us meet as foes, but this Ring will make us brothers."
"I? I am a monument to all your sins."
The Didact - "So fades the great harvest of my betrayal. Even these beasts recognized what you were oblivious to, human. Your nobility has blinded you, as ever. The Librarian left little to chance, didn't she? Turning my own guardians... my own world... against me. But what hubris to believe she could protect her pets from me forever. If you haven't mastered even these primitives, then Man has not attained the Mantle. Your ascendance may yet be prevented. Time was your ally, human, but now it has abandoned you. The Forerunners... have returned. This tomb… is now yours."
-Captain Del Rio - "I am ordering you... TO SURRENDER THAT AI !!!!"
The Didact - "In this hour of victory, we taste only defeat. I ask, why? We are Forerunners, guardians of all that exists. The roots of the galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms... And the impervious shelter beneath which it has prospered. I stand before you, accused of the sin of ensuring Forerunner ascendancy. Of attempting to save us from this fate where we are forced to... recede. Humanity stands as the greatest threat in the galaxy. Refusing to eradicate them is a fool's gambit. We squander eons in the darkness, while they seize our triumphs for their own. The Mantle of responsibility for all things belongs to Forerunners alone. Think of my acts as you will. But do not doubt the reality: the Reclamation... has already begun. And we are hopeless to stop it."
