I like this one the best, but they`re all really good.
These ones are good as well.
"God does indeed play dice, and the dice are loaded."
The quotes are nices , it helps a lot to give more "background" to the game
Personnally i like this one about the self aware machine discovery.
These ones are also superb, IMO.
Pessimistic, but true.
Here is one of mine (that I can think of off the top of my head.
(I probably worded that wrong)
"Why do you insist that the human genetic code is 'sacred' or 'taboo'? [...] If you deny yourself a useful tool simply beacuse it reminds you uncomfortably of your mortality, you have uselessly - and pointlessly - crippled yourself."
quote out-of-head, so it may be little wrong:
"Humans unfailing capacity to believe in what he prefers rather than what the evidence whows to be likely and possible has always astounded me. We long for caring universe which will save us from uor childish mistakes and in the mountains of evidence we will pin all uor hopes on the slimmest of doubts. God has not been proven not to exist, therefore it must exist..."
Academician Prokhost Zakharov "For I have tasted the truth"
[Itellectual Integrity tech]
when i read it I thought that the autors had stolen this quote from my head...
"Richard Baxton piloted his recon rover into a fungal vortex and held off four waves of mindworms, saving an entire colony. We immediatley purchased his identity manifests and repackaged him into the 'Recon Rover Rick' character, with a multi-tired midea campaign: Televids, touchbooks, holos, psy-tours, the works. People need heros, they don't need to know how he died clawing his eyes out, screaming for mercy. The real story would just hurt sales, and dampen the spirits of our customers."

-Morgan Stellar Talks Keynotes speach.
^ I love how this one Pokes fun at the media.
"What goes on inside an event horizon? Decent people shouldn't think to much about that."
-Academician Prokhor Zakharov For I have Tasted the Fruit
Now now, let`s not get into conspiracy theories!
Amazing we haven't heard this one already...I think I have it by memory:
"Resources exist to be consumed, and consumed they will be, if not by this generation then by some future one. By what right has this future generation got to rob us of our birthright? None say I!" then something else involving eating.
That would be this one:
"What goes up,
better darn well stay up!"
...or something like that. Said by some Morganite when discovering Graviton Theory. The funniest quote I have found yet.
Yep, that's the one. Said by some faceless technician at "Morgan Gravitronics"
This one's from memory, but goes something like this:
A handsome young cyborg named "Ace"
Wowed women at every base
but once they glanced at
his "special enhancement"
they vanished with nary a trace
It's just the end of the quote really, but it's said by Lal, and goes like this:
"A brave little theory, and actually quite coherent for a system of five or seven dimensions -- if only we lived in one."
Academician Prokhor Zakharov
"Now We Are Alone"
"I hold a scrap of paper in the darkness and light it. I watch it burn bright and curl, disappearing into nothingness, and the heat burns my fingers. Where has it gone? What has it become? I cannot shake the feeling that I have witnessed a form of transcendence."
Commissioner Pravin Lal
There's a quote for Stockpile Energy? How are you supposed to get that?
By sifting through the files in the "voices" folder. I guess Firaxis didn't think it through. (It's named Fac38.mp3.)
Free flow of information is the only safeguard against tyranny. The once-chained people whose leaders at last lose their grip on information flow will soon burst with freedom and vitality, but the free nation gradually constricting its grip on public discourse has begun its rapid slide into despotism. Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.
It's a Lal quote, from the Planetary Datalinks.
I like it because it's true.
