Words of Wisdom from Babylon 5

"Prophecy is a guess that comes true. When it doesn't, it becomes a metaphor,"
- Londo

"The Universe is an evil place, but at least it has a sense of humour."
- Londo

"The Universe speaks in many languages but only one voice....
It is the language of the heart.
The language of the soul
It is the voice of our ancestors speaking through us.
And the voice of our inheritors waiting to be born...
No matter the cost...
We agree to recognize this singular truth and this singular rule...
We are one."

"It is said that the future is always born in pain. The history of war is the history of pain. If we are wise, what is born of that pain matures into the promise of a better world, because we learn that we can no longer afford the mistakes of the past."
-- G'Kar in Babylon 5:"In the Beginning"

After so many bad relationships, she was afraid of loving and being hurt again, but she should have done it anyway, or at least "boffed him once."
When Stephen remarks that "that's one way to deal with unrequited love," she replies, "All love is unrequited, Stephen. All of it," and buries her head in his shoulder.

The shelter is a mess, and according to Bo there is a lot of work to do: a damaged hull to repair, garbage to be picked up, debris to be cleaned up from space surrounding the station, and airlocks to fix in Brown Level.
"Typical," complains Mac. "They call all the shots, they get all the glory, we clean up the mess."

"We imbue our lives and deaths with meaning ourselves. That by living each moment like it was the last, and acting with the correct motives we can never die pointlessly, because "death will have meaning if it comes when you are in fullest pursuit of your heart."

G'Kar does not want to lead others, afraid they may be forced to pay the price of his mistakes. What if he leads them the wrong way, teaches them the wrong lesson? Even worse, what if they come, not because of the lesson but because of the teacher? G'Kar fears his own shadow may become larger than his the message.

""If the primates that we came from had known that someday politicians would come out of the gene pool, they'd have stayed up in the trees and written evolution off as a bad idea. Hell, I always thought the opposable thumb was overrated."
- "Babylon 5: A Distant Star"

"The universe is driven by the complex interaction between three ingredients: matter, energy, and enlightened self-interest."
- G'Kar, Survivors

"We are all slaves to our histories. If there is to be a .. bright future, we must learn to break those chains."
           - Delenn, GROPOS

"The Captain does not believe in indiscreet questions. He believes the only way to get pertinent information is by asking impertinent questions." "Then," says Lennier with a faint smile, "I believe I may have finally found a home."

"From time to time, you will make mistakes. They're inevitable. Sometimes those mistakes will be...huge. What matters is that you learn from them. There's nothing wrong with falling down, so long as you end up just two inches taller when you pick yourself up off the floor. At times, you may end up far away from home. You may not be sure of where you belong anymore. But home is always there. Because home is not a place. It's wherever your passion takes you. As you continue on your path...you will lose some friends and gain new ones. The process is painful, but often necessary. They will change, and you will change because life is change. From time to time...they must find their own way, and that way may not be yours. Enjoy them for what they are. And remember them for what they were.
I really do believe that sooner or later, no matter what happens...things do work out. Oh, we have hard times. We suffer. We lose loved ones. The road is never easy. It was never meant to be easy. But in the long run...if you stay true to what you believe, things do work out. Always be willing to fight for what you believe in. It doesn't matter if 1000 people agree with you or one person agrees with you. It doesn't matter if you stand completely alone. Fight for what you believe in."
 - Sheridan - Objects at rest

"And I was wondering if they will remember us hundred years from now, or a thousand. Then I figured: probably not."
"But it doesn't matter. We did what we did because it was right, not to be remembered. History will attend to itself, it always does."
-- Sheridan and Delenn in Babylon 5:"The Deconstruction of Falling Stars"

"Babylon 5 was the last of the Babylon stations. There would never be another. It changed the future .. and it changed us. It taught us that we have to create the future .. or others will do it for us. It showed us that we have care for one another, because if we don't, who will? And that true strength sometimes comes from the most unlikely places. Mostly, though, I think it gave us hope .. that there can always be new beginnings .. even for people like us."
 - General Susan Ivanova, Sleeping in Light
