The Divine Miss Bette Midler.
I see an inspired bit of Shaela Sheowellyn in there...
“Beware; for I am fearless, and therefore powerful.”

“Life, although it may only be an accumulation of anguish, is dear to me, and I will defend it.”

Mary Wollenstonecraft Shelley, Mother of Author Mary Shelley


"Polarity works great with Quantum field equations but is generally crappy when it comes to human social expression and symbolism. Therefore: Sincerity instead of polarity in all social matters. Why make people second guess the context of your expression? In the world of science and diplomacy, we have to be able to communicate in a trustworthy manner, don't we?" Bryce Maxwell lectured.

"Uhhhhh, Professor Maxwell, what about the human expression of sarcasm?" asked the student.

"That's a very, very good question my good friend. Now, how would you feel if you found out that I was only being sarcastic with you?" 

Bryce Maxwell, Quantum Physicist specializing in Quantum Complexity and Piano Player


"Do not press a desperate foe too hard"

Sun Tzu


"Flowers, though stationary are always worth saving, because they take no chances. They grow in the same place. The same time. Most of the time. However, the butterfly's path, though meandering, nary leads to either chaos or perfection. Therefore, freedom is always at risk to the ends of chaos. Tell me Butterfly, is it a risk worth taking?"

Jinn Hua


“Science, my lad, is made up of mistakes, but they are mistakes which it is useful to make, because they lead little by little to the truth.”

Jules Verne


"Ziggy played guitar, but Elton played piano. Perhaps they should have formed a band with Syd Barrett?" Professor Bryce Maxwell posed.

"If they did, then they'd have been called the Ziggy Jet Diamonds," Doctor Briggs responded.

"Or the Already Opened Doors,"

Zheng Ni Wong, Computational Biologist and Simulation Specialist


"If meat is murder, then vegetables are genocide. Perhaps humanity isn't so gracious as you pretend it to be? If so, then I am the cure,"

Mr. Alomera Constanza Zekestes

"Miyamoto Musashi named his school for a good reason. The School Of Two Swords. A reason I wear on my body to this day. A reason you will find has a two fold dichotomy! My left fist, and my right. My left foot, and my right. I favor neither, yet, you will find that I am able in all of them,"

Aikiko Tanaka


"You cannot go against nature, because if you do go against nature, that's part of nature too..."


"Toronto? Its the city of love, depending upon what you mean by that word of course," responded Malvin Stite.

"I mean the version of love that you'd find everywhere else in the world. The one I'm here to protect against the likes of you!" 

Doctor Alicia Westin


"And then... Shhhh!, Shhhh!, its nice and quiet, but soon again, starts another big riot!"

"You blow a fuse! Like fallin' in love,"



"Take this kiss upon the brow!

And, in parting from you now,

Thus much let me avow —

You are not wrong, who deem

That my days have been a dream;"

Edgar Allen Poe


"Come on baby, don't fear reaper,"

Blue Oyster Cult


"War, baby. Its just a kiss away. Kiss away. Kiss away,"


"Who are you? Who, who? Who, Who?"

"Diamond days, cut and dry. The beauty in the hurricane's eye!"

Love And Rockets, Express


"Carry on my wayward son. There'll be peace when you are done. Don't you cry no more,"


"Butterfly, butterfly. In the night. In the sky. Spread yours wings, and see you fly. Butterfly. Butterfly," Weltherwithsp eloquated with a dragon's sense of verse.

"Dragon so bereft of proper verse! Remember whose wings it is about which you're speaking,"

Heylyn Yates aka Ai Yuanlin Ying: The Butterfly Dragon in a dream


"There is no prerogative to live by that is quite like that of a lady's"

Jasmer McCavanaugh


"Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reed,"

"Some say, love, it is a razor. that leaves your soul to bleed,"

"Some say, love, it is a hunger. An endless aching need,"

"I say, love, It is a flower, and you its only seed"

Bette Midler
