Go To

"A wise man once said that nothing really dies, it just comes back in a new form. Then he died. So, next time you see a lowly salamander, think twice before you step on it — it might be you."
The Galactic Entity in Futurama, "Reincarnation" (Cold Opening)

"I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I'll be back again, and again and again and again and again..."
Jimmy Webb, Highwayman

"Each of us plays a role; each time a different role. Maybe the last time I was the interrogator and you were the prisoner. The players change, the story remains the same."
Leoben to Kara Thrace in Battlestar Galactica, "Flesh and Bone".

Wan: I'm sorry Raava. I failed to bring peace. Even with Vaatu locked away, darkness still surrounds humanity. There wasn't enough time.

There is no death! The stars go down
To rise upon some other shore,
And bright in heaven’s jewelled crown
They shine forevermore.
