    These ones are also superb, IMO.

    Pessimistic, but true. :(

    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."

    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.

    "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.

    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:

    By sifting through the files in the "voices" folder. I guess Firaxis didn't think it through. (It's named Fac38.mp3.)

    Why do you care?
    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.
