BG epic quotes!

#1 Post by Freak666 » 25 Feb 2011 20:00

What's your favorite quote by BG that is outstanding enough to use it for signatures etc.?

My fav is:

"I've gone beyond the truth, it's just another lie" (Mordred's song)

My signature :)
but that's not really from a song...

I always liked quoting "Infected Brains will never reach the Other Side"

but of course there are tons of others.

"Turn your head and see the fields of flame" always sounded very epic to me, and many other lines from ATTWS.
"As darkness came it brought along silence.
Yet silence also bears madness.
Silence surrounds me - a deathly silence"...

"i'm alone and sadness reigns in my heart" is one that stands out for me,
but on the other hand there's at least one in every BG song :D
The vision fades there is no sanctuary,
What will go up surely comes down!

I never could find any good signatures in BG songs. They are poetic, but not stuff like "be the change you want to be in the world" and other such philosophical one-liners people like to use in signatures. That aside, I always liked "The iron crowned is getting closer, swings his hammer down on him, like a thunderstorm he's crushing down the Noldor's proudest king". But it's too damn long :D.
Now I'm riding through the air
Going to where no one dares
On the way I cross the line forevermore.
For once in life, I do not care
Nothing matters, now I dare
On the ride I'll cross the line
Forever to be free

How do I pick just one? :? I'm with Lord_Of_Noldor - there's one in every BG song.
If the Gods want to punish you, they answer your prayers.

"I've heard the warning, well curse my name!" - The Curse Of Feanor

This should be the best one for me, but there are so many, I also like e.g.:
"Now I'm gone, and it seems, that life hast never existed!" - Theatre Of Pain (sounds even more tragic without the context)
"I am the narrator." - Somewhere Far Beyond (or just "narr-a-to-o-or" xD)
"Well we all know there's no other side, it's good and evil, I know right between there's no borderline - this is the punishment divine!" - Punishment Divine

And a lot more... omg, there are so much good one-liners in BG-songs, I never noticed that.^^

"The young man said I will never give up
the inner war I can hold against it
my mind, my mind, my mind's in darkness
the young man says I will never give in
the prophecy, behold it's true

I conquer the flame to release the insane I'm crying
I cannot erase
I'm the dragon reborn
and in madness I soon shall prevail"

still gives me shivers. standout point of the album.
Defiant of destiny

I always wanted to make
Will my weary soul find release for a while
At the moment of death I will smile

my signature. Don't know why I still didn't. :?
Just keep in mind, this world is sacred.

Shine on
Embrace and deny me

"Wheel of time" is one of their most polarizing songs, to me. Brilliant stuff like the above is followed by the pretty hammy "Weave on wheel of time". The song has many of my favourite Guardian quotes, and many of my least liked too.

But, seeing as the topic is more geared towards the favourite ones... Here are mine

"It's calling me
Saidin
So precious and sweet"

"I conquer the flame
To release the insane
I'm crying
I cannot erase
I'm the dragorn reborn
And in madness
I soon shall prevail"

Actually I think I like this quote best.
"Don't mind the blood here, welcome to the slaughterhouse". :mrgreen:
