It would be nice to see some Alien Crossfire quotes here as well, unless there is a seporate page for it, which should justify a link to the other page. LeVirus Watts 21:33, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps the quotes should be organized by the work or philosophical doctrine it's from; Yang's quote goes from Mind and Matter to another example then back, while all the quotes are about nihilistic abandonment of the body/abandoning dualism.

It could be nice to indicate the research or achievement by name that prompts the quote, as a form of context. -- 08:18, 5 October 2009 (UTC)

Lal Quote[edit]

There' s a U.N. quote I really like, it's exactly like this:

"Once a man has changed the relation between himself and his enviroment, he cannot return to the blissful ignorance he left. Motion, of necessity, involves a chenge in perspective"

However, I cannot recall the "source" of the quote. Anyone who could remind me? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

Here's the blurbs.txt bit for it:
##Doctrine: Mobility
Once a man has changed the relationship between himself and his
environment, he cannot return to the blissful ignorance he left.
Motion, of necessity, involves a change in perspective.

Missing University Quotes[edit]

There are a number of University quotes missing. The ones about genetics, specifically. Paraphrasing, one of them says "our genes can not and do not lay out the data for the placement of every cell, but rather what they CAN do is establish the basic patterns that lead to the finished product." The other is the one about "watching a thousand generations marching past being both a blessing and a curse."

Those are good quotes.

In fact, they're all good quotes. Someone who is able to install it on their computer should definitely make a complete list. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

Check copyright[edit]

This game includes very many excellent epigrams. Let us be careful not to rip off too much. ~ Ningauble 15:25, 6 November 2008 (UTC)

Quotes from People Outside the Game[edit]

There's a couple quotes in the game from real life people like Plato or Socrates. Would it be better to include them in the "Other" section, or to just leave them out? --Hagamablabla (talk) 13:26, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
