Do not let sorrow break your spirit. Instead, use its cold, hard body to steel your resolve.
This is a quote from a novel I've been working on in my Creative Writing class.

Words to live by.
"Wait! Hurry, demolish your Trading Post! You do not want it to end like this, do you? Let us end this with a bang, not a whimper!"
~Napoleon Bonaparte, Age of Empires III, one minute remaining until he loses by Trade Monopoly. The tone with which he says this is hilarious, especially since he is depicted as being extremely pompous when you're fighting him.
"Hmm... the blood of your warriors will only keep the sun rising for a few more days. Send more."
~Cuauhtemoc, ruler of the Aztec, Age of Empires III, on your puny army.
Ah, Cuauhte, I love ya. An awesome and humourous friend or foe. Nearly every line of his is very quotable.
"Your forces are almost worthy of... well, me. Not good.
~Frederick the Great, Age of Empires III, on your substantial army.
Like Napoleon, Frederick is depicted as somewhat pompous in-game, which makes his complaints all the more fulfilling when you finally bring his to his knees.
"These are dark times. I regret the nessecity of annihilating you.
~ Queen Elizabeth, Age of Empires III.

...Yes, I've been playing AoE3 a whole lot recently. It's a great game, what can I say?
