Barragan Louisenbairn: (…) So what? The pillars are defended by four ants. Four warriors can easily crush them.

A Vandereich soldier: I must say it was quite the surprise to be able to gain access to what could be called the thirteen court guard companies captain general's private room, his office, that easily. Perhaps your attention to security is a bit low?

Anderson: Well then, my soldiers of Iscariot, I ask you: What do you hold in your left hand?

With poison served at every supper, and daggers flashing in the moonlight! We are the apostles of Judas Iscariot, we are his holy folk of assassins, and upon the hour at which we are called, we cast our thirty pieces of silver into the sight of the holy, and hang ourselves with a rope of straw!
Iscariot soldiers: Thus, do we move to meet Hell's legions as a mighty army, and form our squared ranks against Hell's gates, and prepare to meet the seven million, four hundred and five thousand, nine hundred and twenty-six demons of iniquity!

Kenshin: Yes, but the damage is done, and the width of that paper... measures the gulf in our abilities.

"[sigh] Though your tale is more complex than some, you still exist in a simple world of revenge, titillation and death. Allow me to try again, in language more befitting your author. Hi, I'm Mary.

"Look — here's the problem. You've done some bad things, but I'm really, really upset right now. So much so that, honestly, I don't trust myself. And if you attack me or I attack you... I will hurt you. I will hurt you worse than you've ever been hurt in your whole life. I can carve you up by looking at you. I can break you, boil you, freeze you. I can do things you can't imagine. Things I can't imagine, until I have to, and then I'll improvise. Part of me is hoping that you will attack. And part of me is praying — for your sake and my own peace of mind — that you don't. It's up to you. Oh... And, Rebel... I have eyes that can see through solid matter. I have ears that can hear your slightest word, your heartbeat, your breathing. You do anything that hurts others... I will find you. And you won't like it. Do we have an understanding?"

"Look at my eyes, churl. No power... yours or anyone's... can stop me. My ancestors were wizards and kings... conquerors. You are a common killer — a mad dog accidentally born in human form. You took my world, made my people slaves, and slew the man I had given my heart to. I need no power to destroy you — save the strength born in my blood."
Princess Projectra, Legion of Super-Heroes vol. 3''

Lana Lang: Kara, take care of yourself over there. And don't let your mother push you around. Don't forget. You're Supergirl. Strongest girl on the planet.

Roho: "It's a shame you're gonna die here, girl. You never belonged at Crucible in the first place. Just like my idiot brother Tsavo. Just like all of the poor saps Amata recruited."
Supergirl: (eyes flaring up) "You're talking about my friends. And if you're any indication of who really belongs at Crucible—" (unleashing eye beams) "I'LL BURN IT ALL DOWN!"

Superman: "Get up, vermin! Do you understand what you did to me?"
Mongul: "Perfectly. I fashioned a prison that you could not leave without giving up your heart's desire. Escaping it must have been like tearing off your own arm... And now I'm going to kill you anyway."

Your sorcery is good, Satanis, but not good enough. As long as I have my super-powers, magic spells aren't enough to stop me!

"You dare attack one who can crush you with but a single thought?"

"How do I know so much about the Worldkillers? Because I am one. Born to fight. Born to slaughter. Born to conquer. The desire burns in me like a million suns."

"You won't trick me that way. You want me to give up. Is that it? Well, it won't work... I'm Superman. I go down fighting!"
Superman, The Jungle Line

Death: "Ah— Two more supposed "immortals" to feel Death's tender touch! I shall— Eh?"
(Starfire's starbolt deflects Death's scythe)
Starfire: If you can thrust, Rider, it's no faster than I can parry. And if somehow it is you who is responsible for the pain that Raven feels— the Doom that hangs even now over her head— You'll soon be sorry you ever set foot on any Earth.

"Shut up, you contemptible cowards — You think I can't dispose of garbage like you? If you've killed [my father] the best man on this planet, then there's no place in the universe you can hide from my wrath!"

"If anyone here knows Zaar, speak now or I'll make you myself. Your choice. Either works for me."
Supergirl, The Killers of Krypton

Sad, deluded pup! It was I who returned your powers, for a purpose of my own, and should I so desire— I may also reverse the process— and reduce you to a helpless, quivering clown!

Doomslayer: The course of this station must not be altered. Earth must be destroyed. On this depends the future.
Superman: Who are you?
Doomslayer: I am the Death of Doomsdays. I am the Doomslayer.

"I know your plans for conquering the Earth, but it's a stand-off! No matter what evil deeds you try with your super-powers, I'll use my super-powers to block you!"
Supergirl to three Phantom Zoners, The Girl with the X-Ray Mind

You'd better jump back real far this time, Dolok. Give yourself some time to contemplate your defeat.

"Fin Fang Foom": I will tell you my name before I destroy you. My true home is in the deeps of time beyond the reach of clocks. I know much about illusions, little hero. Ever and anon, I wear them as I wander in the world. But now, I have brought us into my time and you are doomed! Never again shall you lift a limb nor draw a breath. No breeze shall caress thy cheek, no dawn anoint thy brow with light. The time of illusions has passed... [sheds illusory disguise] ...and the name of the illusion is JORMUNGAND! For I am truly THE WORLD SERPENT! And the truth shall be thy death knell. You are nothing, a simple-minded hero who spoke so well and knew so little! Till Heimdall's horn doth sound on that final day and Odin is swallowed by the wolf, the life of Jormungand is deathless! My wyrd lies in the hands of the thunder god of the Vikings and in his hands only... And none other does the Midgard Serpent fear! But Thor is already a mere shadow of his former glory. On the day I find him, I will break the ancient prophecies and slay him! Then will Jormungand tower above the fates themselves!
Thor: [donning distinctive helmet] But I have many names, serpent, even as you. Vingthor the Hurler, Longbeard's son, have I been called. Hrodr's Foeman, too. In Tyr's ancestral home, wisest Hymir knew my name as Veur; unhappy Hrungnir's Playmate some have called me. East of Elvigar in Gianthome they whisper Hloriddi's name. My father called me son. My mother called me darling. And beneath the vaults of Heaven, I am THOR ODINSON, the Thunderer, JORMUNGAND'S FEAR! For I am the wielder of Mjolnir, the Crusher, the enchanted mallet of thunder and lightning that your father hates! It, too, has another name. In the Fury of the storm, it howls its rage and shrieks its name aloud! Do you hear it, serpent? It is thy bane I wield, Loki's child! The end of all illusion! The hammer sings the death of Jormungand!

"I'm Kara Zor-El of Kandor, Queen. I'm a super-hero. I don't scare easily."
Supergirl, Death & the Family

"It is hopeless, Superman. Neither your nor Flash can stop me! Not only do I have super-powers, but I am immortal! And if not even the explosion of Krypton could stop me... How can you?!"

Superman: "You know I'm going to have to stop you, Brainiac!"
Brainiac: I know you're more than welcome to try— But I don't give much for your chances of succeeding!"''

"There may not be as many of us as there once were—- But one Legionnaire is still better than a shipload of slime like you!"
Brainiac 5, The Earthwar Saga

"I did not bring ruin to an underground utopia pre-dating the dawn of agriculture solely for the purpose of not gaining ultimate power over the fabric of reality. Do not make me end you and implant the organ myself, Doctor. I no longer have the fine motor control for self-experimentation and time is of the essence."
Helsingard, Atomic Robo

    Fairy Tales 
Koschei was out hunting; as he returned home late in the afternoon his good horse stumbled under him. "What is the matter with you, you old nag?" he demanded. "What made you stumble? Have you scented some misfortune?" The horse answered: "Prince Ivan has come and carried off Maria Morevna."
"But can we overtake them?" Koschei asked.
"You could sow your wheat, wait for it to grow, you could harvest it and thresh it, grind it into flour, bake bread from it in five ovens, and eat the bread, and only then set out in pursuit. And even so we would overtake them," said the horse.

"Your Majesty," says he, "will you give me leave to spend one night in your empty palace?"
"God bless you," says the Tzar, "but you don't know what you are asking. Foolhardy folk enough have tried to spend a night in that palace. They went in merry and boasting, but not one of them came walking out alive in the morning."
"What of that?" says the soldier. "Water won't drown a Russian soldier, and fire won't burn him. I have served God and the Tzar for twenty-five years and am not dead. A single night in that palace won't be end of me."

XANA and William Dunbar: You all (the Dark Lyoko-warriors) will die tonight.
Dark Aelita: How are you going to kill us?! No matter how many times you destroy us, we always come back…
XANA and William: Not after we tear your master into pieces.
William: Let me make one thing clear to you. I fought Moriarty to a standstill. We completely destroyed an entire island. I have a rogue artificial intelligence living inside my brain that nearly subdued this entire planet. And that's not even the worst part. I'm a Kadic student, a French citizen, a Lyoko Warrior whose world is about to be destroyed. My friends, family, and everyone else who wants to live in a free world are counting on me to stop you here and now. So make no mistake. You will die for the last time tonight.

"On a scale of one to ten, I'd say you score one hundred! But! I'm the million point man, you cannot hope to defeat me!"

"I'll have to hand it to you, that was 'almost' as unpleasant as Oyecomova and his Stand Ability. Then again, I haven't exactly had to tank a lot of explosions in my time with Star Platinum's Aura. Still, this just goes to show Roman…(...)Why I'm going to tear that Paladin limb from limb, drag you out of its cockpit, and then beat you senseless with one hand, Torchwick. Because of one simple fact. That even sixty years after Stroheim bore witness, that Mantle's Technology still has nothing on Stand Power. If you're having a hard time wrapping your mind around that lesson… well, don't worry.(...)Because I'm a teacher by trade, so I'll be more than happy to school you."
Jotaro Kujo to Roman Torchwick, Remnant's Bizarre Adventure

Lavaria: Even if I die here, my husband and my children will stop you.
Antonio: Stop me? When the earth shakes at their footsteps, when people faint and grow ill when they here they are near, when the mountains crumble from their blows and their flames stretch into the depths of space...that is when I will fear, Lavaria. Never before.

Thalia: Fine, take him. Take him, and I will move heaven and hell to find him again. Take him, and I will find a god or goddess that I can beat that knows about both sides, and I will first ask them to tell me where the Roman camp is, and if that doesn't work, I will shock the information out of them. Take him, and I will tear Olympus down more thoroughly than any war. And when I do that, I will seek you out, and I will make your demise just as pain-filled as my life without my baby brother. And trust me, this is a promise. And I always follow through with my promises.
Thalia Grace to Hera when she tries to take Jason, All Together, Cousins.

Celestia: These precious memories destroy the lies you have built to shield your conscience! This Is Unity! This Is Love! THIS IS HARMONY!
Celestia: There can be no peace, no compromise, no accord between Us and Them. You have seen his memories, how they poisoned their world, incited violence and murder, turned our own onies against us!
Celestia: And you have done just the same, or even worse! You have corrupted your Equestria, tainted the souls of precious ponies with cruelty and malice, and drawn two realities into a war of endless death and atrocity! Harmony, true harmony, transcends species and worlds – it is the finding of common ground despite differences, the nurturing of love between all! You would create a desolation and name it Peace!
I will not allow some Tyrant rule with an iron hoof. I will not allow an entire species to die quietly and fade into the darkness. I will not stand to see the rape of innocence and innocents alike, of the peaceful being forced to take up bloody arms, and the grotesque being violated in mind, body and soul! Equestria, all of Equus, will rise against you! We will fight. We will turn this darkness away, and come to the rescue of all you have subjugated, Pony and Human, Earthborn and Equestrian alike. We will cast you down, and cast you out!
In Harmony's name, I swear it.
The Conversion Bureau: The Other Side of the Spectrum, in which Celestia's badassery recreates the Tunguska Event.

"You have made multiple assumptions, based on fallacious reasoning, which I find hilarious. First, you think I am still an emotional wreck. You believe that I am unstable, ineffective, defeated. That is a reasonable but terribly erroneous assumption. I am functional. (...) The second fact is that you assume physically restraining me will keep you safe. You should know better by now that restraints are irrelevant. Because I can kill you with my brain."
River Tam, Forward

I am the Morningstar. You are nothing. Fight me if you dare.

Beast Boy: You see, I'm a shapeshifter. I can transform into any animal, from both zoos and fairy tales, and from any planet. So, you're not just up against one enemy – you're up against BILLIONS!!! And you have no idea which one is gonna come next!
Raven: You call yourself a god? My father was a real god. Conquered his universe, then my mother's, and then tried this one. He could destroy an entire planet just by setting foot on it. But thanks to my friends, I got over my fear of him, and destroyed him. And that was BEFORE I became this! You want fear? You want power? I'll give you both.

"I'm not going to give an ultimatum. We are… Oh, we are so far past that. This is a statement of pure fact. An... An example, if you will. We're going to take a leaf out of the pages of the big black book of piracy! Only... It's not the edition you were hoping for. We're tearing this straight out of the Four Emperors' personal playbook: you touch one of ours? We fuck you up. This goes beyond a mere rescue mission, this... this is nothing short of a crusade. We are going to pummel the men stationed here. We are going to take back our archaeologist. And besides making the World Government look like the idiots they are in the process? We are going to burn this fucking island TO THE GODDAMN BEDROCK AND CAST IT INTO THE FUCKING ABYSS IT'S HANGING OVER, SENDING IT RIGHT BACK TO WHERE IT FUCKING BELONGS! WHO'S WITH ME!?"

Iva Kann: (shrugging) You can get the count from Ronan. I stopped worrying about such things after my 25th.

Zeus: You go too far, mortal. Remember your place. Before I remind you of it.
Doctor Strange: I am the Sorcerer Supreme. I am the Evergreen Man, The Lord of Time, and I know my place perfectly well. I fight beings like you every single day. I have guarded reality against them for centuries, and for the most part, I have done it alone. For centuries I have stood, and I stand here still, now with an Infinity Stone in my hand. Do you really think that you, any of you, is a match for me? So how dare you? How dare any of you? How dare any of you raise your voices to me!

"Strange, I don't remember seeing you here while I conquered this city. I'll keep this very simple. I conquered the city. I claimed it. It is mine. You don't get to steal my things; you don't get to destroy my things."

"Sure do. If someone's mad enough to want to take a swing at us, we make it easy. You'd be surprised how few are smart enough to question their 'good fortune' that some third party always pops up to give them the information. Then they spend incredible amounts of resources to get here, and never have much time to wonder why we give them coordinates that walk them right into our strongest defenses and a major fleet presence. It makes our enemies waste their energy, brings them within easy reach of tons of our weapons, and gives the Imperial Navy units stationed here some nice, reliably appearing live-fire exercises to play with. The mice never question why the cheese is sitting there, do they? Snap!"
Ching, A Crown of Stars

Ra's Al Ghul: Be that as it may, if I wished to use her against you, why would I kill her?
Batman: To anger me. To make me reckless when I came against you.
Ra's Al Ghul: [sighing] Detective, Detective. Yours is one of the finest strategically analytical minds I have ever encountered, but you are not using it. Why would I want you to come after me? Were I to desire your life, I would simply activate a group of my men from anywhere in the globe, and send them against you. You might triumph over one or many, but eventually one would kill you. This is a certainty, Detective.

"Tell the one who transgressed against me that I, Rei Ayanami, will not take this act of disrespect lying down. I will enact upon them a vengeance so grand, so sublime, that future generations of mankind will write epics about my victory. Plays will be written about my conquest over your compatriot, sonnets depicting my revenge will be distributed to schoolchildren to teach them of the folly of men perpetrated by the one who wronged me. And when my dread vengeance is brought to fruition, when this Prankster who had defaced me lies broken and defeated at my feet, I will say nothing. As nothing needs to be said to mere dust."

Saphran Indellous: You've defeated Space Marines in the past?
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Not as such, no. But I've defeated men made for war, men who were embraced by both foul sorcery and technology to become killers. Men made by dark masters to be insurmountable in the field of battle, and I've bested each one, and I best them every time.

Jocasta Nu: [seeing Saphran get up] That is not possible! Your heart, your lungs! They are pierced, I know it!
Saphran Indellous: Cut my heart out? Pierced my lungs? Did you really think something like that would stop me? I am a Crimson Razor of the Emperor of Mankind. Pain cannot lay me low, for I am it's lord, and it is my strength. I can feel no fear, nor bend beneath it, for I am Fear Incarnate.

"The only thing separating me from her is the two minutes it's gonna take to kick your ass!"

"I carry twenty three great wounds all got in battle. Seventy five men have I killed with my own hands in battle. I scatter, I burn my enemies' tents. I take away their flocks and herds. The Turks pay me a golden treasure, yet I am poor! Because I am a river to my people!"
Auda Abu Tayi, Lawrence of Arabia

I shatter Swords and splinter spears; None stands to Shieldbreaker. My point's the fount of orphans' tears, My edge the widowmaker.
Shieldbreaker's song, Book of Swords

Beauchamp: So there is nothing left for me but to make arrangements for the duel.
The Count of Monte Cristo: All that is a matter of perfect indifference to me, Monsieur. There was no need to come and interrupt the performance for such a slight thing. In France, one fights with sword or pistol; in the colonies they take carbines; in Arabia, a dagger. Tell your client that, though I am the injured party, to keep my eccentricity to the very end I shall let him have the choice of weapons and will accept any, without discussion or argument. Any, do you understand? Even a duel by drawing lots, which is always stupid. But with me, it is a different matter: I am sure of winning.

"Any man here want tae fight? Then fight me! Aye, fight me! An' I swear by the harp o' bones I'll tak' him tae the deeps o' the sea an' then kick him tae the craters o' the moon an' see him ride tae the Pit o' Heel itself on a saddle made o' hedgehogs! I tell ye, my rage is the strength of the storm that tears mountains intae sand! Who among ye will stand agin me?"
Awf'ly Wee Billy Bigchin, Discworld

"I will be the Winter Knight. I will be the most terrifying Knight the Sidhe Courts have ever known. I will send your enemies down in defeat and make your power grow. But I do it my way. On my terms. When you give me the task, I'll decide how it gets done... and you'll stay out of the way and let me work. And that's how it's going to be."
Harry Dresden, The Dresden Files

I do not dance to the Fallen's tune, Knight. We may move together, but I play the music. I set the beat. For nearly two thousand years I followed my path, through every treacherous bend and twist, through every temptation to turn aside, and after centuries of effort and study and planning and victory, they follow my leadership. Not the other way around. Turn aside from my path? I have ''blazed'' it through ages of humanity, through centuries of war and plague and madness and havoc and devotion. I am my path and it is me. There is no turning aside.
Nicodemus, Skin Game

Shagnasty: Old spirit caller. The failed guardian of a dead people. I do not fear you. [...] You are not a holy man. You do not follow the Blessing Way. You have no power over me.
Listens-To-Wind: Don't plan to bind or banish you, old ghost. Just gonna kick your ass up between your ears. Let's go.

Harry Dresden: I know the Sidhe are dangerous. But there's not enough of them. Not for what is coming at us.
Queen Mab: The numbers stand at one Mab to none. That advantage shall be sufficent.

Harry Dresden: I am Harry, son of Malcolm! I have battled dark sorcerers and black knights! I have fought men and beasts in numbers too great for counting, invaded the heart of Winter, confronted necromancers and the living dead, vampires and ghouls and demons in their hordes endless! I have matched wits with the six Queens of Faerie and prevailed, and thwarted the combined will of the White Council! When they came for my child, I smote the Red Court of Vampires, and laid them in ruin for all the world to see. I am Harry, son of Malcolm, and I have entered the vaults of Tartarus, and stolen its treasures beneath the gaze of Hades himself! And I'm about to add giant slaying to my resumé.
Harry Dresden: Damned right. Who are you and what have you got?
I am the doubt that wards away sleep. I am the flaw that corrupts, the infected wound, the false fork in the trail. I am the gnawer, the worm in the book, the maggot that burrows in the mind's eye. I am He Who Walks Beside.

"Where'd they go?"
Where they belong. Where they have always been. Back in the minds of Man. But I am not like them. I am Azrael, created to be creation's shadow. You cannot destroy me. That would destroy the world.

"Revenge! Revenge! The King under the Mountain is dead and where are his kin that dare seek revenge? Girion Lord of Dale is dead, and I have eaten his people like a wolf among sheep, and where are his sons' sons that dare approach me? I kill where I wish and none dare resist. I laid low the warriors of old and their like is not in the world today. Then I was but young and tender. Now I am old and strong, strong, strong, Thief in the Shadows! My armour is like tenfold shields, my teeth are swords, my claws spears, the shock of my tail a thunderbolt, my wings a hurricane, and my breath death!"
Smaug, The Hobbit

"Kill? Me? Oh, you are priceless, brat. I am eternal, child. I am the eater of worlds, and of children. And you...are...NEXT!"

"You will never get it back. In the last need, Sméagol, I should put on the Precious; and the Precious mastered you long ago. If I, wearing it, were to command you, you would obey - even if it were to leap from a precipice or to cast yourself into the fire. And such would be my command. So have a care, Sméagol!"
Frodo Baggins, Iron Woobie, suddenly takes a level In Badass, The Two Towers

Gandalf the White: You cannot enter here. Go back to the Abyss prepared for you! Fall back into the nothingness that awaits you and your Master! Go back.
The Witch-King of Angmar: Old fool! This is my hour. Do you not know death when you see him? Die now, and curse in vain!

I walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I have commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I have spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?
Kallor the High-King, Malazan Book of the Fallen

I am Artagan Truax. I have killed men in eleven systems. I have fought well and withstood much and have not given quarter. I will not be broken by the likes of you today, nor will my son. And I will not beg for mercy.
Artagan Traux, Maul: Lockdown

We were masters of nature, masters of the world. We had forgotten everything: death, fatigue, our natural needs. Stronger than cold or hunger, stronger than the shots and the desire to die, condemned and wandering, mere numbers, we were the only men on earth.
Elie Wiesel, Night

"The dark is terrible, surrounds you, and is never empty as it seems. Though monsters lurk, know this: none is hungrier than me."

I'm the babe of a bloodripper
Born in the teeth of a gale
I'm the one who wields the sword
And makes the foebeast wail
Blood's me fav'rite colour
Swifter'n lightning aye
Stand out me way, stand out I say
Step aside now, or die!
'Cos I'm the spawn o' nightstorm
An' death sails in me wake
I sheath me blade in innards
An' what I want, I take!
Come one, come all, I'm waitin'
I'll flay yer carcass bare
So everyplace I go they'll say
Ahoy, you bold corsaaaaaaaaaaaiiir!
Romsca, Pearls of Lutra

"I am hunger. I am thirst. Where I bite, I hold till I die, and even after death they must cut out my mouthful from my enemy's body and bury it with me. I can fast for a hundred years and not die. I can lie on the ice for a hundred nights and not freeze. I can drink a river of blood and not burst. Show me your enemies."
A werewolf, Prince Caspian

"I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me, and it goes no further. I am your end, your utter obliteration!"

Dalinar: Have I ever lost a battle, Tanalan? You know my reputation. Do you think it exaggerated?
Tanalan: Better to die trying to bring you down than to surrender.
Dalinar: You'd better be sure of that. Because if I win here, I'm going to have to make an example. I'll break you, Tanalan. Your sorry, weeping city will be held up before all who would defy my brother. Be absolutely certain you want to fight me, because once this starts, I will be forced to leave only widows and corpses to populate the Rift.

Do you believe that I could kill you? Right here, right now, without using a sword or the Power? Do you believe that if I simply willed it, the Pattern would bend around me and stop your heart? By...coincidence?

Skitter: "You're planning to make threats?"
Alexandria: "Threats is the wrong word... but English is a limited language in some ways. There's really no word to articulate what I mean. A threat with a measure of inevitability to it. A promise? Too feeble. People break promises too often. A curse? A malediction? Too... magical. An oath? The connotations are wrong. When I say I'll do something, I make it happen."

You have no idea what I'm capable of. I'm NOT just some house pet who got lost. I have summoned blazing fires to destroy my enemies. I have made giant mountains come alive to trample those who'd dare to attack my friends. A cloud of bats came at my friend's call, swarming Dolph's pack and tossing them into a chasm. Dolph knows what I can do. When he asked for my help when he was starving, I gave it. But every time he attacks, I strike back even harder. You came after me...and now I make the noise to drive you crazy! ... You have underestimated me. Now you will find out what I'm truly capable of!

What do you want to call that, Daine? A draw? Too easy. This is Susan Bishopric here. I've won one Rodney and I'll have a shitload more this autumn. I can Dream rings around you, and you ain't seen nothin' yet!
Susan Bishopric, The Night Mayor

I shall tear these stars from out the heavens and hurl them in the faces of the gods, if this be necessary. I shall blaspheme in every Temple throughout the land. I shall take lives as a fisherman takes fish, by the net, if this be necessary. I shall mount me again up to the Celestial City, though every step be a flame or a naked sword and the way be guarded by tigers. One day will the gods look down from Heaven and see me upon the stair, bringing them the gift they fear most. That day will the new Yuga begin.
Sam, Lord of Light

"There are only demigods and men upon the field," said Death. "They are still testing our strength. There are very few who remember the full power of Kalkin."
"The full power of Kalkin?" asked Sam. "That has never been released, oh Death. Not in all the ages of the world."

You're in the presence of royalty, mate. I go where my subjects go, and my subjects are everywhere. And here in the cities there're a million crevices for my kingdom. I fill all the spaces in-between. Let me tell you about me. I can hear the things left unsaid. I know the secret life of houses and the social life of things. I can read the writing on the wall. I live in old London town. Let me tell you who I am. I'm the big-time crime boss. I'm the one that stinks. I'm the scavenger chief, I live where you don't want me. I'm the intruder. I killed the usurper, I take you to safekeeping. I killed half your continent one time. I know when your ships are sinking. I can break your traps across my knee and eat the cheese in your face and make you blind with my piss. I'm the one with the hardest teeth in the world, I'm the whiskered boy. I'm the Duce of the sewers, I run the underground. I'm the king. I'm King Rat.

I'm the son of Jupiter! I'm a child of Rome, consul to demigods, praetor of the Twelfth Legion. I slew the Trojan Sea Monster, I toppled the black throne of Kronos and destroyed the Titan Krios with my own hands. And now I'm going to destroy you, Porphyrion, and feed you to your own wolves.
Jason Grace to the giant Porphyrion, The Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero

I am Harry August, born New Year's Day 1919. I am sixty-eight years old. I am eight hundred and ninety-nine. I have directly killed seventy-nine men, of whom fifty-three died in war of one kind or another, and indirectly murdered through my actions at least four hundred and seventy-one people who I know of. I have witnessed four suicides, one hundred and twelve arrests, three executions, one Forgetting. I have seen the Berlin Wall rise and fall, rise and fall, seen the twin towers collapse in flames and dust, talked with men who scrambled in the mud of the Somme, listened to tales of the Crimean War, heard whispers of the future, seen the tanks roll into Tiananmen Square, walked the course of the Long March, tasted madness in Nuremburg, watched Kennedy die, and seen the flash of nuclear fire burning apart across the ocean.
"RRRAAAAAAAAHHHH!! I've fought Chaos dragons and lich kings! I've fought Greater Daemons, and the Gods themselves! I bled Bel'akor, the Prince Who Would Be King!

Haha, maybe we both will!"

"And to my son, the stallion who will mount the world, I will also pledge a gift. I will give him the iron chair that his mother's father sat upon. I will give him seven kingdoms. I, Drogo, will do this. I will take my Khalasar west to where the world ends and ride wooden horses across the black salt water as no Khal has done before. I will kill the men in iron suits, and tear down their stone houses! I will rape their women, take their children as slaves, and bring their broken gods back to Vaes Dothrak! This, I vow, I, Drogo, son of Bharbo. I swear before the Mother of Mountains as stars look down in witness! AS THE STARS LOOK DOWN IN WITNESS!"

Baba Voss: Very well. You must obey the vote. But it will be very difficult for anyone to take a woman and two newborns down a mountain without his arms or his legs.

Baba Voss: No, but I can kill the first six or seven. So those of you who wish to be among that number, step forward. I have my blade ready to count you to heaven.

Who are you talking to right now? Who is it you think you see? Do you know how much I make a year? Even if I told you, you wouldn't believe it. You know what would happen if I suddenly decided to stop going in to work? A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly-up. Disappears. It ceases to exist without me. No, you clearly don't know who you are talking to, so let me clue you in. I am not in danger, Skyler. I am the danger. A guy opens his door and gets shot, you think that of me? No. I am the one who knocks!

I have not been sneaking fembots and skreeths into the places where I live. YOU want something! You. You want what's inside my head. You want what I know about wormholes. Because I can leap tall galaxies in a single bound! I can scorch planets with a wave of my hand, and you - and you - and you... you can't do jack.

"Okay then; that's what I'll do, I'll tell you a story. Can you hear them? All these people who lived in terror of you and your judgement, all these people whose ancestors devoted themselves, sacrificed themselves, to you; can you hear them singing? Oh you like to think you're a god? Oh but you're not a god, you're just a parasite, eaten out with the jealousy and envy and longing for the lives of others. You feed on them. On the memory of love and loss and birth and death and joy and sorrow SO - so, come on then. Take mine. Take. My. Memories. But I hope you've got a big appetite, because I have lived a long life, and I have seen a few things."
"I walked away from the Last Great Time War, I marked the passing of the Time Lords. I saw the birth of the universe, and I watched as time ran out, moment-by-moment until
nothing remained, no time, no space, just me. I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a MAD MAN!. I have watched universes freeze and creations burn! I have seen things you wouldn't believe, I have lost things you will NEVER UNDERSTAND; and I know things, secrets that must never be told, knowledge that must never be spoken, knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze.

The Doctor: And now... here I am, just when you've got victory in your grasp, wandering in front of you without a care in the universe. Obviously, I have something up my sleeve. Obviously, you're unaware of the trap I've lured you into. I'm what monsters like you are afraid of. So tell me... are you getting scared yet?

"Was that supposed to frighten me, Farl? I've seen entire species destroyed; civilisations left in ruins. I've witnessed solar systems vanish in the twinkling of an eye. I've seen things that would freeze your blood... So don't threaten me. Don't ever threaten me."
The Doctor, Big Finish Doctor Who, "Phobos"

Koloon: Doctor! Pity me!
The Doctor: Fear me.

Seventh Doctor: No, not a man. Not a human being. I am a complex space-time event. I am Lord President of Gallifrey. The Traveller from Beyond Time. I am the Sandman! The Oncoming Storm!

Big L, "Danger Zone", Lifestylez ov da Poor & Dangerous (1995)

I'm Evil Eddie with a rock-steady microphone mastery
Fuck I'm good, just ask me
As a concept, the intellect can't grasp me
Fuck I'm good, just ask me
I got the strong profile, without the help of rhinoplasty
Fuck I'm good, just ask me
Kicking arse in the cha, but you can't class me
Fuck I'm good, just ask me
I just had a threesome with your mama and your aunty
Fuck I'm good, just ask me
Butterfingers, "FIGJAM"

I'll have you know..
That I've become...
Determination that is incorruptable
From the other side a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable
Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around
while you're alive
I'm an indestructable
Master of War!
Disturbed, Indestructable

I am the fire
I am burning brighter
Roaring like a storm...
Halestorm, "I Am The Fire"

Wake up, I'm a bullet loosed
Into the heart of a wretched age
I breathe just to beat and bruise
An evolution of the burnin' rage

Gonna get mine
Get outta my way
There's gonna be
Gonna be HELL TO PAY!!!

Now that the gates of Hell are unlocked
Magazines are fully loaded, guns cocked
They told me I'd be king when Hell froze over
So did anybody notice that the temp just dropped?
I am your nightmare, I am infernal
I'll strike fear in you cause fear is universal
I'm an amalgamation of Hell's nine circles
I am your Doom, I AM ETERNAL!

I'm like a colossus with no possible obstacle on earth to stop it
Have you heard how my grandpa turned Xerxes' armies into Persian carpets?
This is his weapon that I wield - earned it, then learned to flaunt it
I hope you all brought a shield - so I can return you on it!

I'm Big Dangerous, you're just a Lil Vicious
As I leave my competition, respirator style
Climb the ladder to success escalator style

I kill conversation when I walk into a room

I'm a walking disaster, I'm the Demolition Man.

— "Branding Iron", by Tom Morello

When you look into my eyes
You know you're gonna see that fire
If you're standing in my way
It ain't gonna be your day
Bleed until I own this dream
Build it like you've never seen
Even at the mountain top
I'm never gonna ever stop
Oh The Larceny, "Man on a Mission"

Dead I am the dog
Hound of Hell you cry
Devil on your back

Rob Zombie, "Dragula"

I have conquered galaxies,
Now I've stepped down to see
If a shadow can bleed!
Koopa King will strike you down!
I'll put you back in the ground,
Learn why I wear the crown!

And when the hills are blackened bare
And blood and ashes fill the air
Then, shall reborn forces
Feast upon your corpses
We shall rise again, by my fungal hand!
Decompose your armies!
Rot and roil your bodies!
Thus the age of mushroom
Ends the age of man!

"Oh, come out ye' black and tans
Come out and fight me like a man

Tell her how the IRA made you run like hell away

But N.W.A ain't shit to me
Dre, beatin' on Dee from "Pump it Up!"?
Step to the Dog and get fucked up
I'm simplistic, imperialistic, idealistic
And I'm kicking the ballistics
Having that gang war
We want to know what you're fighting for
Fighting over colors?
All that gang shit's for dumb motherfuckers
But you go on thinking you're hard
Come to New York and we'll see who gets robbed
Take your jheri curl, take your black hats
Take your wack lyrics and your bullshit tracks
Now you're mad and you're thinking about stomping
Well, I'm from the South Bronx, fuck Compton
Tim Dog, "Fuck Compton"

You draw out the lambs, and I vanish a limb, call me demon, devil, heathen, heretic, believer, anything you need to
Brandish a sin, but forgive me when I chop your band to pieces, let you see the demon in me
Brandish a grin, had to be the demon, I was never met with reason, even my own people
Brandished the whip, and they whipped me and whipped me until I had nothing but granite for skin
Marked for death, that's why I laid my heart to rest
I've watched so many fall, that rage inside's my only armor left
Been swinging for so long, I'm sure I stained my metacarpals red
But you'll get no respect from me, know why? 'Cause I don't honor dead.
Daddyphatsnaps as Guts, "Guts"

The devil bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat

The Charlie Daniels Band, "The Devil Went Down To Georgia"

I see you standing tall with your armor and your blade!
You think you're unstoppable, you think you've got it made!
I am not afraid, no, I won't back down!
I'll face you head on, and take you
To the ground!

You underestimate me!
You think I'm weak and small!
But I've got something you don't have—

"This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the Earth may know that there is a God in Israel."

"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. 26 And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die."
Jesus Christ, "John 11:17", The Bible

"Now I am become death, Destroyer of Worlds."
Vishnu, Bhagavad Gita

"Hear my word, both gods of Heaven, and goddesses:
I shall relate to you what my heart tells me within my breast;
Let none of the goddesses, and none of the gods think
to defy my word; let all together hasten
to submit to me, so that I may without hindrance carry out my work!

If any among the immortals rebelliously desires, and I shall know,
to descend from Heaven, and aid the Trojans or the Achaeans,
they shall be struck and return to Olympus to suffer in shame.
Or I shall cast them into dark Tartarus,
to the furthest pit, where under the Earth is the deepest abyss.

Where there is a threshold of bronze, and gates of iron. Tartarus:
as far from Hades as the bright sky is from the Earth!
There they shall feel how much mightier am I than all immortals.
Or dare to try it and learn, you gods, that you may be convinced.
Let down now a golden chain from high heaven.

All gods to the last, and all goddesses to the last
take hold of it; but you will not be able to draw from heaven to the earth
Zeus, the Most High Counselor, no matter how much you labored!
However should I, having a will to do so, wish to pull -
with the very earth and the very sea shall I draw it up

And with my right hand, around a peak of Olympus
wind the chain, and the universe shall hang from on high.
By that much greater than gods and greater than mortals am I."
Thus he spoke, and the gods kept a deep silence.
All were struck by the speech, for with terrible menace he spoke.
Zeus, The Iliad, Book VIII

I am myself the Image of God; I have not yet been cast down from the heavenly Glory, as you were through your pride; I have put on Christ; I have been transformed into Christ by Baptism; worship thou me.

"I've survived more apocalypses than you've had chest colds."
Nicol Bolas, Magic: the Gathering

"They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them, and in the furnace of war forge them. They will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines such that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear."

"No world shall be beyond my rule, no enemy shall be beyond my wrath"

"We are the Ultramarines, the Sons of Guilliman. Whilst we draw breath, we stand. Whilst we stand, we fight. Whilst we fight, we prevail. Nothing shall stay our wrath."

"You accuse me of being a madman. What right have you to judge what is sane and what is not?
I have fought with the shadows on the edge of your vision.
I have seen the faces that laugh at you in your nightmares.
I have smelt the foetid breath that issues from the mouth of hell itself.
I have heard the silent voices that make your spine tingle with dread.
I have entered the realms between worlds where there is no time or place.
I have clashed with creatures the sight of which would sear your soul to the core.
I have bested horrors that chill with a gaze and tempt unreasoning terror.
I have faced death eye to eye and blade to blade.
I have stared into the eyes of insanity and met their all-consuming stare.
I have done all of this for you, for your protection, and the guarantee of a future for mankind.
And yet you accuse me of being a madman, you who have never had your sanity tested so sorely.
What right have you to call me a heretic and a blasphemer, who have not heard the whisper of dark gods in your ear?
You are weak. Vulnerable. Human in your frailty. I am strong and yet still you judge me.
And yet you still judge me for my sins, you who art most sinful to the heart?
Only the insane have strength enough to prosper; only those that prosper truly judge what is sane."
Inquisitor Lichenstein, Warhammer 40,000

"His word was the roar of thunder. His glance was the look of the eagle. His might was the strength of the kraken. His guile was the cunning of the wulfen. His temper was the death of men."

I myself was an upstart once, but it was a waste of my time. Now I find myself surrounded by idiots. The one thing I have left to achieve is to beat some sense into your thick skull!
The Master, Broken Worlds

They say men can’t be trusted out here, that even angels have gone crooked. That the corruption of Throne has twisted everything up, made people into animals.
If you believe in anything, believe in this: no animal in all the kingdom shall ever strike me down.
The Law, Broken Worlds

Truly, anyone can kill. I prefer not to dirty myself with such droll work. But if you really must insist, I will show you the ways in which killing can be fantastically beautiful. If, by some chance, you do manage to crawl your way to kiss my heels, your reward will be my short sword.
The Refined, Broken Worlds

Young man, you can strum your lyre
I have strung the world in wire
Young man you can sing your ditty
Hades, Hadestown

I’ll drown more sailors than the mermaid shall;
I’ll slay more gazers than the basilisk;
I’ll play the orator as well as Nestor,
Deceive more slily than Ulysses could,
And, like a Sinon, take another Troy.
I can add colours to the chameleon,
Change shapes with Proteus for advantages,
And set the murderous Machiavel to school.
Can I do this, and cannot get a crown?
Tut, were it farther off, I’ll pluck it down.

Horror is looking into the eyes of the Shadowed One, knowing you are about to die...and then being forced to live. Horror is waking each day to see every part of your body moving on its own, a shifting mass of Protodites where once was solid metal and living tissue. Horror is what is in the eyes of your partners when they look at you...and in the cries of your enemies when your swarm engulfs them. Don't talk to me about fear, creature—I AM FEAR!

Batman: It won't reach Gotham.

Batman: Alfred, what do you see when you look at me? The boy whose shoes you used to tie every morning, the teenager you drove to his first date? While you are here every night, I am out there, the only thing between the innocent and the predatory.
Alfred: You may be, but -
Batman: No, not "may be", I am. When the mugger or the thief stops to think twice, that is fear. That is what I am. That is why they hired assassins - because I am the reason the criminals breathe easier when the sun rises. So no, Alfred, I am not in over my head.

From this world, I will conquer the next, and the one after that! I will crush entire suns in the palm of my hand! I will stride down the halls of the heathen Emperor, and grind him and the Golden Throne of Terra between my iron fingers! The universe will know the will of Khorne. Trrrrremble! Quaaaaake! These, are your FINAL HOURS, Lorn V! My reign will turn the heavens themselves, crrrrrrimson! Bloooood for the Blood God! Let the universe, drrrrrrrown in it!!!

And what is this path, this meaning, this purpose, to which we gather the skulls of our foes?

It is nothing. We murder, we kill, it is mindless savagery, this, UNIVERSE, is

In mere hours, billions will die. Innocent, guilty, strong and weak, honest and deceitful, ALL OF THEM! They will scream, they will
burn, and for no purpose, but that mighty Khorne, may revel in their bloodshed...

And united, in this void, of purpose, fear or duty... We, shall at long last, be FREE!

All the bribes I sent to the Omertas ended up buying me nothing. The Great Khans aren't exactly clamoring to fight for my Legion now. The garrison I established at Nelson has been wiped out. Years of meticulous scheming to place a mole at Camp McCarran - wasted. The Kings of Freeside are cooperating with the NCR now, which frees up soldiers to defend the dam.

When the injustice is great enough, justice will lend me the strength needed to correct it. None may stand against it. It will shatter every barrier, sunder any shield, tear through any enchantment, and lend its servant the power to pass sentence. Know this: There is nothing on all the Planes that can stay the hand of justice when it is brought against them. It may unmake armies. It may sunder the thrones of gods. Know that for all who betray justice, I am their fate. And fate carries an executioner's axe.

"Mortal, you have served your purpose. Now face your end. I am the all-consuming void. What can one mote of golden light illuminate within the abyss? Countless stars. Countless worlds. Countless lives. All fell to me. All brought to nothing. All the teeming chaos of creation? Brought to order. To neutrality. To nothing. I saw your mind as you ran through my prison. You have fought machines and gods. They were mighty. They were finite. I am infinite. I am nothing. You struggle as so many have done before. You will be consumed like all those before you. I saw your mind. Your courage never wavered. Why? Arrogance? Ignorance? Stupidity? I was contained, once. Once. Is that why? My captors bent time and space. My captors built a whole reality to contain me. My captors burnt their souls away to fuel their engines. And you? You glitter. You fly above me like a gnat. I am inevitable. I cannot be denied. You strike this incarnation with all your might. It changes nothing. You are not brave. You are not victorious. No matter what form I take... THE END comes for you all!"

I'm weak and slender
But I won't just surrender
To a mistrustful pretender
With an overbite!
Bite or stab or pull the trigger
Can't stop Boyfriend, I deliver
Spittin' out venom more than you've spat your entire life!
Even with just a single try
This rappin' legend never dies!
Hit me with all you got, I'll be just fine!
Sticks and stones break my bones, but nothin' can defeat my spirit!
Voice so strong, monsters and demons fear its highs!

See the mighty trees, the strong bones of my body!
The rustling of the leaves is my laughter!
The swaying grass is the hair on my back!
The rocks and stones, powerful teeth of mine!
My blood, the water coursing through the land!
My ever watching eyes, the sun...
And the moon!

A stone is a part of the earth. It may be shaped into human form, but, like me, it is not alive. A stone does not desire anything. It has no dreams or feelings of any kind. Along with myself, rocks and stones have been the only constants on this planet. Of course, it is not a perfect definition. For example.
* pop*
A stone can be broken. I cannot be marked or damaged in any way. It is impossible to cut or remove even a single hair from my head. The pressures exerted with my fingers alone can break any available measuring equipment. Except for my own body, there is no material in existence I cannot bend, or break, or manipulate like wet clay.

You want to know who I am? I'll tell you who I am—I'm Quentyn son of Quinn, the Questor of Freeman Downs. The gnomes call me "Hunter of Shadows." The Gragum call me "Little God-Slayer."

I have slain a gragum priest-king and three of his followers singlehanded. I have waded through an army of shadow-wights to lay low a rat-king. I have pulled a house down around the ears of not one, but two gangs of thieves. I have slain a swamp kraken and run before the Wild Hunt—and won. And before I leave this duchy I will add a dead dragon to that list. I am a Rac Cona Daimh, and I am nothing to be trifled with. Do you have any other questions, your grace?

Vegeta: Yep. By a low-level warrior, his half-breed son, a midget, and an obese man wielding a sword. I lost outright.

You talk about your legends and your warrior race and your pride, but that doesn't mean a DAMN THING to this man!

Cell: Ugh. Put that on a Valentine.
Gohan: Because you were right about me. I was a coward... Scared of what would happen if I snap... Afraid that... if I lost it this time... I'd... never come back. That I'd finally... kill someone. But I'm not scared anymore, Cell.
Cell: Well, g-glad I could— (Gohan kicks him in the face) GAAAAAAAAAAAH!

See, Nathaniel, you seem to think that this is a fluke, that you lost this one out of sheer bad luck. [shows him her manicure] Not even a chip. That's how little effort you are to me, Nathaniel Evers of the mafia; you didn't even require me to chip a nail.

While you steal, and plot, and do whatever it is criminals do, I’m training. While you sleep, I’m training. While you obsess unhealthily over Nicholas Campbell, I’m already miles ahead of him, because I was training. You think your power makes you unstoppable, but that’s because you’ve only used it around humans or unskilled Supers.

Lilith: It's sad to see you slowing down, sister! Tell me, is it the curse?
Eda: Maybe it is the curse. But then how pathetic are you, that you can't best me AT MY WORST?!
The Owl House, "Agony of a Witch"

I can break a door down with one hand behind my back
I can crush a Grizzly til his bones begin to crack
I eat a dozen t-bones for my early morning snack
So imagine what I could do to you...

I can tear a telephone directory in two
Bending iron bars is something else that I can do
I always pick my teeth with the nearest billiard cue
So imagine what I could do to you...

I can knock a hole right through a solid concrete wall
I can pull a tree out by its roots, and that's not all
Now you know about me, you don't need a crystal ball
To tell you what I could do to you

I can crush a house brick with one movement of my hand
And laugh while I reduce it to a dusty heap of sand
I cut a splendid figure when I make my chest expand
So imagine what I could do to you!
— The verses to "Exotic" Adrian Street's theme music

You need to understand that your little jabs and your insults, it's all kiddie games. You can't leave a mark on the champ's face. Come Royal Rumble, understand, when you step in the ring, your arms are just too short to box with God.

Talk about your Psalms, talk about John 3:16—Austin 3:16 says: 'I've just whipped your ass!

    Real Life 
Palace of Ashurnasirpal, priest of Ashur, favorite of Enlil and Ninurta, beloved of Anu and Dagan, the weapon of the great gods, the mighty king, king of the world, king of Assyria; son of Tukulti-Ninurta, the great king, the mighty king, king of Assyria, the son of Adad-nirari, the great king, the mighty king of Assyria; the valiant man, who acts with the support of Ashur, his lord, and has no equal among the princes of the four quarters of the world; the wonderful shepherd who is not afraid of battle; the great flood which none can oppose; the king who makes those who are not subject to him submissive; who has subjugated all mankind; the mighty warrior who treads on the neck of his enemies, tramples down all foes, and shatters the forces of the proud; the king who acts with the support of the great gods, and whose hand has conquered all lands, who has subjugated all the mountains and received their tribute, taking hostages and establishing his power over all countries.

When Ashur, the lord who called me by my name and has made my kingdom great, entrusted his merciless weapon to my lordly arms, I overthrew the widespread troops of the land of Lullume in battle. With the assistance of Shamash and Adad, the gods who help me, I thundered like Adad the destroyer over the troops of the Nairi lands, Habhi, Shubaru, and Nirib. I am the king who had brought into submission at his feet the lands from beyond the Tigris to Mount Lebanon and the Great Sea [the Mediterranean], the whole of the land of Laqe, the land of Suhi as far as Rapiqu, and whose hand has conquered from the source of the river Subnat to the land of Urartu.

The area from the mountain passes of Kirruri to the land of Gilzanu, from beyond the Lower Zab to the city of Til-Bari which is north of the land of Zaban, from the city of Til-sha-abtani to Til-sha-Zabdani, Hirimu and Harutu, fortresses of the land of Karduniash [Babylonia], I have restored to the borders of my land. From the mountain passes of Babite to the land of Hashmar I have counted the inhabitants as peoples of my land. Over the lands which I have subjugated I have appointed my governors, and they do obeisance.

I am Ashurnasirpal, the celebrated prince, who reveres the great gods, the fierce dragon, conqueror of the cities and mountains to their furthest extent, king of rulers who has tamed the stiff-necked peoples, who is crowned with splendor, who is not afraid of battle, the merciless champion who shakes resistance, the glorious king, the shepherd, the protection of the whole world, the king, the word of whose mouth destroys mountains and seas, who by his lordly attack has forced fierce and merciless kings from the rising to the setting sun to acknowledge one rule.

The former city of Kalhu [Nimrud], which Shalmaneser king of Assyria, a prince who preceded me, had built, that city had fallen into ruins and lay deserted. That city I built anew, I took the peoples whom my hand had conquered from the lands which I subjugated, from the land of Suhi, from the land of Laqe, from the city of Sirqu on the other side of the Euphrates, from the furthest extent of the land of Zamua, from Bit-Adini and the land of Hatte, and from Lubarna, king of the land of Patina, and made them settle there.

I removed the ancient mound and dug down to the water level. I sank the foundations 120 brick courses deep. A palace with halls of cedar, cypress, juniper, box-wood, meskannu-wood, terebinth and tamarisk, I founded as my royal residence for my lordly pleasure for ever.

Creatures of the mountains and seas I fashioned in white limestone and alabaster, and set them up at its gates. I adorned it, and made it glorious, and set ornamental knobs of bronze all around it. I fixed doors of cedar, cypress, juniper and meskannu-wood in its gates. I took in great quantities, and placed there, silver, gold, tin, bronze and iron, booty taken by my hands from the lands which I had conquered.
— Standard Inscription of Ashurbanipal II

We will welcome to our numbers the loyal, true and brave,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
And although they may be poor, not a man shall be a slave,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

For Lincoln and Johnson, hurrah boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitors, and on with the war!
For we'll rally round the flag, boys, we'll rally in our might,
Shouting the holy cause of freemen!

If they can prevent me from going as an Emperor, they cannot prevent me from abdicating and going as a Fatherland Volunteer.
Pedro II responding to the War Cabinet during the Uruguayan War when the General Assembly refused to let him go to the front in person

What you are, you are by accident of birth; what I am, I am by myself. There are and will be a thousand princes; there is only one Beethoven.

Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, "This was their finest hour".
