* OlderThanDirt: In one of the more famous myths about the Mesopotamian goddess Ishtar, she descends into TheUnderworld but is denied entrance. She calmly gives the following response:
-->If thou openest not the gate to let me enter,
-->I will break the door, I will wrench the lock,
-->I will smash the door-posts, I will force the doors.
-->I will bring up the dead to eat the living.
-->And the dead will outnumber the living.

* In ''Literature/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell does everything he can think of to get Thomas More to sign the Oath of Supremecy recognizing Henry VIII as head of the Church in England rather than the Pope. He stalls, sends in More's family, tells him basically to cross his fingers and sign, and asks if he's really unafraid of death as he drags out the matter until Henry's patience is at its limit. Though he admits he ''is'' afraid of the axe, More refuses to betray his principles, so Cromwell shrugs his shoulders and gets on with the KangarooCourt.

-->'''Eleven:''' "No plans, no backup, no weapons worth a damn. Oh, and something else I don't have: anything to lose. So, if you're sitting up there with your silly little spaceships and your silly little guns and you've any plans on taking the Pandorica tonight; just remember who's standing in your way. Remember every black day I ever stopped you and then, AND THEN, do the smart thing. {{Beat}} Let somebody else try first."

'''Kaworu:''' (smiling) I will try not to force you to destroy me.



* In ''Fanfic/AlphaAndOmega'', [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji]] warns [[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Misato]] and later her men that he's only interested in getting what he needs to save [[Franchise/MassEffect Councilor Tevos']] life, but if he has to kill every last one of them to do so then he will.
