Notable Quotes

G’sten: There is always hope. At least that is what I tell myself when I awaken in the middle night and the only sound that I can hear is the beating of my own desperate heart.

G’Kar: No Dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever. There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power governments and tyrants, and armies can not stand. The Centauri learned this lesson once, we will teach it to them again. Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.

Sheridan: G’Kar, I know we’ve have had our problems in the past. I can’t imagine going into the council chambers and not seeing you there. Straight, Tall, ready to argue with anyone about anything thing. I don’t know I … I don’t think I want to go the next ten years without your insight or your words. For what it’s worth, every resource that I have, every contact, anyway that I can help you win back your planet, it’s yours.
G’Kar: The last time I offered someone my hand, we were at war 24 hours later.

G’kar: Captain Sheridan, I have been instructed by my government to come to you and ask for sanctuary.

Delenn: They have sworn their lives, their fortunes, and their blood to help fight the coming darkness.

Sheridan: Tell the other rangers, the ambassadors, everyone is this army of light. Babylon 5 stands with you. Tell them, tell them that from this place we will deliver notice to the parliaments of conquerors that a line has been drawn against the darkness and we will hold that line no matter the cost.

Londo: From this day on, the penalty for the murder of any Centauri, by any Narn would be the execution of 500 Narns, including the perpetrators own family.

Draal: This has been a hard a trying year for you Captain Sheridan. It might be helpful for you to know, that you are not alone. That in the long twilight struggle, which lies ahead of us there is the possibility of hope.
