"After his parents are murdered, an infant mutant is rocketed to Earth to escape the destruction of his home planet. He is found by a secret order of magicians led by the mysterious robot A-1. They train him in the physical/mental/sorcerous arts. In his 16th year, he is doused by chemicals, hit by lightning, bitten by a radioactive spider, bionically altered by a mad scientist, and given a weapon of great power by beneficent extraterrestrials from the future." - "What's New?", Phil Foglio

"Vell, Zaphod's just zis guy, you know?" - "Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy," Douglas Adams

"Know, O Prince, that between the years when the oceans drank Atlantis and the gleaming cities, and the years of the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of when shining kingdoms lay spread across the world like blue mantles beneath the stars: Nemedia, Ophir, Brythunia, Hyperborea, Zamora with its dark-haired women and towers of spider-haunted mystery, Zingara with its chivalry, Koth that bordered on the pastoral lands of Shem, Stygia with its shadow-guarded tombs, Hyrkania whose riders wore steel and silk and gold. But the proudest kingdom in the world was Aquilonia, reigning supreme in the dreaming west. Hither came Conan the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet." - Conan #0, Dark Horse Comics (taken from Robert E. Howard)

"Your rage is a weapon. Use it indiscrimately, and it will lose its edge." - Ahmet Khim, Silent Strider Ahroun and Gurkha

"Prophets never say anything new. There's nothing in Ix's teachings that you won't find in Buddha or Moses. We always already know: Treat other people kindly because kindness matters even when it is not returned. Courage matters even if you lose. Don't dwell on the pleasures of things that you feel it is wrong to do. Try to live your days as if you were grateful for them. Love your neighbor, and keep your definition of 'neighbor' broad.

Everything the human race knows about living well and living together fits onto a few sheets of paper in big type. One prophet after another tells us the same thing. The hard part isn't to think of it, which has already been done, or to understand it, which any child can do, but to do it." - John Barnes, "'The Night Is Fine,' the Walrus Said"
