What's your favorite quote from this very quotable game? Oh, and keep in mind that I left out Magus' line about laughing at fate for fear that it would steal the show. If you insist, though, you can vote for it by selecting "Other" and listing it in your reply. Other quotes not mentioned in the list are also welcome.

Difficult question...but I did chose

It all began aeons ago, when man's ancestors picked up a shard of a strange red rock…. Its power, which was beyond human comprehension, cultivated dreams…. In turn, love and hate were born…. Only time will see how it all ends.

because, well, it shows that love and hate coexist, and much more.

"All life begins with Nu and ends with Nu…. This is the truth! This is my belief! …at least for now."

Always has been and always will be my favourite.

Ayla fight while alive! Win and live. Lose and die. Rule of life. No change rule.

this quote shows how even ayla (that isn't even that smart, but extreemly helpful) care's for the sake of the planet even if it takes her life to save it. she wont back out in somthing she took promise too. that shows her honor.

P.s. the quote has honor but its iliterat. thats what i like about it.

I picked "Idiots...nothing can live forever". Having Magus come that far and finally get revenge on Queen Zeal was a treat.

All life begins with Nu and ends with Nu…. This is the truth! This is my belief! …at least for now.

more specifically the second half This is the truth! This is my belief! …at least for now. it really sums up my whole mind set.

This is a description of one of the core theme of the series, one which pervades both CT and CC.

I think there are far better Magus quotes throughout the game ("Shall we burn it?" for instance) that top that Catalak one...in fact, I don't understand having a lot of those quotes in the list...>_>

And that Ayla quote deserves the whole speech, I think, not just that bit...Maybe cause I love the part where she says "Old man breathe, but dead on inside."

I chose other. See signature.

I dunno why I like it really. I guess because Glenn is my favorite character.

These lines sort of show the doubt Glenn has in himself. And I think with these lines he then begins to overcome his doubt and I really admire that about him.

"The black wind begins to blow…"

My favorite quote from Magus...  Somehow this quote is also part of my superstition that an omnimous wind carries misfortune.

Mine is when magus says "you got whacked cuz your weak." its sooooo out of character. Its really a translation error he actually says "the weak die like worms" in the japanese version. I couldnt beleive he said that at first, I thought I had a hacked ROM copy :lol:

My quote would be from schala after you beat the queen in zeal ( yes, you can get schala on your team, just play new game plus and win th ebattle with lavos in zeal. she is a shadow type) " I shall surely miss this place but my life shall carry on... i shall not fail!!!

Incorrect. Defeating Lavos at this point will score you the developers ending:

There is no way to get Schala in your party.
