Nothing is true, everything is permitted. — the Creed of the Assassins.

Al Mualim: I applied my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly. I perceive that this also was a chasing at the wind. For in much wisdom, is much grief. And he that increaseth knowledge, increaseth sorrow.

Informant: Demons are after me, demons with a black cross. They want me dead. Me! Can you imagine? If you see them, tell them to go away. But use your blade, it is the only language demons understand.

Altaïr: You'd kill people simply for believing differently from you?
Majd Addin: Of course not! I killed them because I could! Because it was fun! Do you know what it feels like to determine another man's fate? And did you see the way the people cheered? The way they feared me? I was like a God!
[Desmond sits in the Animus 2.0.]
Desmond Miles: So, how does this work?
[Rebecca shows him a needle connected to the Animus, and gives him a sympathetic look.]
Desmond: Of course...
Rebecca Crane: Deep breath...
[Rebecca "plugs" Desmond in.]
Desmond: Agh!
Shaun Hastings: Oh, what are you, a tiny child?
Rebecca: [exasperated] Shaun!
Shaun: Well...

Shaun: Good guys? Let's not get carried away.
Rebecca: What's that supposed to mean?
Shaun: In case you've forgotten, Rebecca, we're Assassins. I could look it up for you, if you like. Basically, it means we assassinate people.
Desmond: Only when we have to.
Shaun: It's a choice. You're choosing to kill.
Niccolo Machiavelli: Are you suggesting we appeal to the people?
Ezio Auditore: Maybe.
Niccolo Machiavelli: Relying on the people is like building on the sand.
Ezio Auditore: You are wrong. Our belief in humanity rests at the heart of the Assassin Brotherhood.

Baron Octavian de Valois: Such entitlement from a man born with nothing to his name.
Bartolomeo d'Alviano: Mine is worth its currency. Unlike yours, which is counterfeit.
Octavian de Valois: How dare you?
Bartolomeo d'Alviano: You think that commanding an army grants you nobility? Nobility comes from fighting besides your soldiers, not kidnapping a woman to cheat your way out of battle!
[Yusuf Tazim, the leader of the Turkish Assassin Order, greets Ezio.]
Yusuf Tazim: Hoshgeldin, kardeshim! (Welcome, brother!) Unless the legend is a lie, you are the man I long to meet. Renowned master and Mentor, Ezio Auditore da la-la-la.
Ezio: Prego? (Excuse me?)
Yusuf: Forgive me. I have a hard time remembering that Italian gibberish.
Ezio: Da Firenze. The city where I was born.
Yusuf: Ah, yes! So, by your custom, I would be..."Yusuf Tazim da Istanbul". I like that!
Ezio: Istanbul? Yet another name for this city?
Yusuf: Evet (Yes), it is a local favorite. Come, Mentor da Firenze. I will show you around.

Duccio: Mia cara (my darling)! The string of fate have drawn us together. Two Italiani (Italians), lost and alone in the orient. Do you not feel the magnetismo (magnetism)?
Sofia: I feel many thing, messere (sir). nausea above all.
Ezio: Is this man bothering you, Sofia?
Duccio: Excuse me, messere (sir), but the lady and I- Ah! il diavolo in persona! (ah the devil himself!) Stay back!
Ezio: Duccio. A pleasure.
Duccio: Run buonna bonna! (dear lady!) Run for your life!
Sofia: Who was that?
Ezio: Un cane. (A dog.) He was engaged to my sister many years ago.
Sofia: And what happened?
Ezio: His cazzo (dick) was engaged to six others.

Altaïr:I did not know him well as a father. He was an Assassin above all.
Al Mualim: You, too, were born into this Order. Do you regret it?
Altaïr: How can I regret the only life I have ever known?

[Abbas, shot by Altaïr's pistol, falls to the floor of the "Black Room". Altaïr slowly approaches him.]
Abbas: I can never forgive you, Altaïr. The lies you told about my family, my father. The humiliation I suffered.
Altaïr: They were not lies, Abbas. I was ten years old when your father came to see me. He was in tears, begging to be forgiven for betraying my family. Then he cut his own throat. I watched his life ebb away at my feet. I will never forget that image.
Abbas: No...
Altaïr: But he was not a coward, Abbas—he reclaimed his honor.
Abbas: I hope there is another life after this one. Then, I will see him, and know the truth of his final days... And when it is your time, we will find you, and then...there will doubts...
[Abbas Sofian dies.]

Clay: What is a man but the sum of his memories? We are the stories we live! The tales we tell ourselves!

['A homecoming']:
Sofia: Such a climb!
È così bello qui. (It is so beautiful here.) This is where your Order began?
Ezio: It began thousands of years ago, but here it was reborn.
Sofia: By the man you mentioned? Altaïr?
Ezio: Altaïr Ibn La'Ahad. He built us up, then set us free. He saw the folly of keeping a castle like this. It had become a symbol of arrogance, and a beacon for all our enemies.
Sofia: And the mandate for menacing hoods... was that his idea as well?
[Ezio laughs]
Sofia: You mentioned a Creed before. What is it?
Ezio: Nothing is true, everything is permitted.
Sofia: That is rather cynical.
Ezio: It would be if it were doctrine. But it is merely an observation of the nature of reality. To say that nothing is true, is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say that everything is permitted, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic.

[Ezio enters Altaïr's library, finding...]
Ezio: No books... no wisdom... just you, fratello mio (my brother).
[Ezio kneels in front of the chair where the skeletal corpse of Altaïr sits, and makes the sign of the cross]
Ezio: Requiescat in pace, Altaïr.

[The Piece of Eden is activated]
Ezio: Desmond?
Desmond: He's talking to me?
Ezio: I heard your name once before, Desmond, a long time ago. And now it lingers in my mind like an image from an old dream. I do not know where you are, or by what means you can hear me. But I know you are listening.
[Ezio removes his hidden blade vambraces and unsheathes his sword, leaving them on the floor.]
Ezio: I have lived my life as best I could, not knowing its purpose, but drawn forward like a moth to a distant moon. And here, at last, I discover a strange truth. That I am only a conduit for a message that eludes my understanding. Who are we, who have been so blessed to share our stories like this? To speak across centuries? Maybe you will answer all the questions I have asked. Maybe you will be the one to make all this suffering worth something in the end. Now... listen...
[He touches Desmond to show him the nexus]

Edward Kenway: It's not about need, Caroline. I want food that don't make me sick. I want walls that hold back the wind. I want a decent life.

Edward "Blackbeard" Thatch: Says Hornigold, a pirate now too proud to call himself one!
Edward Kenway: He prefers caution to cannons.
Edward "Blackbeard" Thatch: Caution's nothing without charisma! If a man plays the fool, then it's only fools he'll persuade! But appear to be the Devil... and all men will submit.
Edward Kenway: And would you be the Devil?
Edward "Blackbeard" Thatch: For an audience, aye. It's all a big show. [Approaches Stede Bonnet, speaking in a deep, menacing voice] Give your quarry something to fear... some hellish thing, from a fevered dream... and men will drop to their knees, pleading for their Lord, before aught else!
Stede Bonnet: Oh, God...
Edward Kenway: Looks fine.
Edward "Blackbeard" Thatch: [speaking normally again] 'Course it does.

Ben Hornigold: You could've been a man who stood for something. But you've a killer's heart now, with nothing but metal to show for all your blunders.
Edward Kenway: A damn sight better than you, Ben. The heart of a traitor, who thinks himself better than his mates.
Ben Hornigold: Aye, and proven true! What have you done since Nassau fell, huh? Nothing but murder and mayhem.
Ben Hornigold: No! These Templars are different; I wish you could see that. But if you continue on your present course, and you'll find you're the only one walking it... with the gallows... at its end.
Edward Kenway: It may be. But now the world has one less snake in it. And that's enough for me.

Edward "Blackbeard" Thatch: In a world without gold, we might have been heroes!
Shay Cormac: "Stay my bled from the flesh of the innocent. Hide in plain sight. Never compromise the Assassin Brotherhood." These are the tenets of the Creed. The principles I used to live by. I was a young man then. The Seven Years War was about to begin. I could not have imagined what the future had in store for me... Nor the cost I would choose to bear... My name is Shay Patrick Cormac. This is my story...

Shay Cormac: "Uphold the principles of our order and all that for which we stand. Never share our secrets nor divulge the true nature of our work. Do so until death -- whatever the cost." This is my new creed. I am Shay Patrick Cormac. Templar of the Colonial... of the American rite. I am an older man now, and perhaps wiser. A war and a revolution have ended, and another is about to begin. May the Father of Understanding guide us all.
Pierre Bellec: What the Hell were you thinking?
Herve Quemar: Unthinkable.
Sophie Trenet: I've never heard of such phenomenal hubris.
Guillaume Beylier: How dare you defy the Creed?
Pierre Bellec: Next time you circumvent the Council, I'll rip you a new arsehole.
Mirabeau: (hammers his desk for silence) While this Council admires your zeal, it is not your place to choose your own targets.


(Jacob Frye is interrogating a Templar agent about a plot to assassinate Prime Minister Disraeli by dangling her over the edge of a roof)
Templar agent: Please! He'll kill me!
Jacob Frye: And a three story drop will shatter your legs and send you to the workhouse. Difference is you can run from him.

Crawford Starrick: Gentlemen. This tea was brought to me from India by a ship, then, up from the harbour to a factory, where it was packaged and ferried by carriage to my door, unpacked in the larder and brought upstairs to me. All by men and women who work for me. Who are indebted to me, Crawford Starrick, for their jobs, their time, the very lives they lead. They will work in my factories and so too shall their children. And you come to me with talk of this Jacob Frye? This insignificant blemish who calls himself Assassin? You disrespect the very city that works day and night so that we may drink this. This miracle. This tea.
Woman: It's my husband.
Eagle Bearer: What's the problem?
Woman: He's an idiot!
ALEXIOS: What good is knowledge if you curse all of humanity in the process? It's what you

wanted to avoid in the first place. Sometimes it's better if we find our own path. We are not ready for the power this place offers.[2]

Angrboda: How much would you sacrifice to be freed of fate's shackles? Would you give your tongue, your hand, your sight?
Havi : I would give all that and more
Havi : Thralls. Humans kept in bondage, bred to serve, such is the fate of the lowly.
Roshan: Basim Are you ready to give up who you once thought you were?
