Quotes / Just Before the End

Go To

The ice age is coming, the sun is zooming in
Engines stop running and the wheat is growing thin
A nuclear error, but I have no fear
London is drowning—and I live by the river.
The Clash, London Calling

"It's not the end of the world...but you can see it from here."

"Even at supersonic speeds the missiles will take an appreciable time to reach their destination. So what do you say, boys, to a spot of breakfast while we're waiting for our Last Judgment!"
Narrator, Ape and Essence

"This is humanity's last stand. The beginning of the end."
Albert Wesker, Resident Evil: Retribution

Many Kindred whisper of the Jyhad, the eternal war or game said to consume the most ancient vampires. This struggle has been waged since the dawn of time, but many vampires fear that, as one millennium passes to the next and the curse of undeath grows weaker, an apocalyptic endgame is at hand. Signs and portents, many recorded in the prophetic Book of Nod, trouble vampires of all clans and lineages, even those who profess not to believe. Whispers in Sabbat covens and Camarilla salons alike speak of turmoil in the East, of armies of Clanless rabble, of vampires whose blood is so thin that they cannot Embrace, of meetings with mysterious elders whose vast power betrays no discernible lineage, of black crescent moons and full moons red as blood. All, say the believers, are omens that the Final Nights are approaching, and that the end of all things is nigh.

Despair! The age of mortals is ending. Time drains away and the stars fade from the sky. The bitter spawn of night crawls from the darkness to possess the world. Fools take refuge in faith or madness, for no other hiding place remains. The Realm of Chaos is begun.
Warhammer: Chaos Army Book (4th Edition)

Pushing through the market square
So many mothers sighing
News had just come over
We had five years left to cry in
News guy wept and told us
Earth was really dying
Cried so much his face was wet
Then I knew he was not lying
