->''<An exo-datologist, eh? The new ideal: [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy warrior]], [[BadassBookworm scientist]], [[WarriorPoet artist]]. It's not enough
to some avant-garde artists, 1962
be a fighter anymore, eh? They want a gentler, more balanced, more intellectual sort of warrior nowadays.>''
-->-- '''War-Prince Alloran''' sneering at Arbron, ''Literature/{{Animorphs}} - The Andalite Chronicles''

->The Derzhi were a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy warrior race]], and though they prized the literacy of their scholars and merchants, it was much in the way they prized their dogs who did tricks ... It was not something they would want to do themselves.

->''"'Krogan scientist?' Heh. Never met krogan scientist worthy of term."''
-->-- '''Mordin Solus''', ''VideoGame/MassEffect2''

->'''Lord High Researcher Fortack''': My predecessor said no one would understand the true worth of my work. As I pulled my blade from his chest, I knew he was telling the truth.\\
'''Commander Shepard''': [[DeadpanSnarker Not exactly what I would call effective academic peer review]].
-->--'' VideoGame/MassEffect2''



->'''Archer:''' How many cases have you won?\\
'''Kolos:''' Oh, I'm not sure. Over two hundred. But that was a long time ago, when the tribunal was a forum for the truth and not a tool for the warrior class.\\
'''Archer:''' [[LampshadeHanging There are other classes]]?\\
'''Kolos:''' You didn't believe all Klingons were soldiers?\\
'''Archer:''' I guess I did.\\
'''Kolos:''' My father was a teacher. My mother, a biologist at the university. They encouraged me to take up the law. Now all young people want to do is take up weapons as soon as they can hold them. They're told there's honor in victory, any victory. What honor is there in a victory over a weaker opponent? Had Duras destroyed that ship he would have been lauded as a hero of the Empire for murdering helpless refugees. We were a great society not so long ago, when honor was earned through integrity and acts of true courage, not senseless bloodshed.\\
'''Archer:''' [[NotSoDifferent For thousands of years, my people had similar problems. We fought three world wars that almost destroyed us. Whole generations were nearly wiped out.]]\\
'''Kolos:''' What changed?\\
'''Archer:''' A few courageous people began to realize they could make a difference.

->''To spill blood outside of battle is a great dishonor. Words burned into all Sangheili since they were young, and to me. And for a time, I believed. I watched my brothers die around me and never dared give aid. "Stitching a wound closed brings dishonor, setting a broken bone brings dishonor." Words of the ignorant who never saw undetonated Needler rounds pulsing beneath a brother's skin. If shame is the price of compassion, so be it.''
