I’ve always been a bit of a fan of quotes. A quote collecter, even. Watching through Andromeda episodes, I’ve always paused and stared at the opening quote that is always shown. Couldn’t help but google for a quotes repository for the Andromeda opening quotes, and after quite some searching, and wading through weird-ed out tripod pages (people still do animated GIFs on their pages !?), and 404 pages and what not, I finally landed on the wikiquotes page for Andromeda quotes. And was quite amazed to find that not only is each episode opening quote present, but also that each episode’s key / notable dialogues are present as well! Amazing collection, this.
My (current) favorite quote out of the lot is still:
You might say reality is the result of complex negotiations between the observer and the observed.
But that is simply a point of view.
— Michio von Kerr, “The Apotheosis of Reason”, CY
Other fine examples (crowd favorites?) include:
We say atoms are bound by
Why not admit the Truth:
The Universe is held together by Love.
Michio Von Kerr,
“Those who fail to learn history
are doomed to repeat it;
those who fail to learn history correctly—
why they are simply doomed.”
“The Illusion of Historical Fact”
— CY 4971
The wikiquotes site also houses a page full of another of my favorite quote laden works: Fight Club. I have blogged about Fight Club before, but this wiki quote page for fight club quotes really does take the cake – there are enough quotes here to fully satisfy your apetite. And then, some more after that.
Bon appétit and, happy quoting!
