Myself, I love the Polynesian one, but the SoL one is pretty epic too.
Might I suggest a last one of these polls after they're finished that contains any unused audio, provided there is enough? Also, maybe post the link to the new poll in the old one topic.

It might be nice if you included links to the full text, I honestly can't remember most of the quotes in this poll.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
