    The quotes are the one area that I firmly believe that Civ4 beats Civ 5.

    Sure, there have been some great mentions in this post, but none of them can compare to:

    "The bureaucracy is expanding to meet the needs of the expanding bureaucracy."

    or my favorite, which really wouldn't have the same effect if anyone else authored it:

    "Compound interest is the most powerful force in the universe." -Albert Einstein

    'Now I am become death, the destroyer of worlds'

    Not very original, but I still think it's fantastic.


    I do wish they could have shoehorned in JFK's 'do not pray for easy lives my friends, pray to be stronger men' quote in...

    "And homeless near a thousand homes I stood,
    And near a thousand tables pined and wanted food.
    " —William Wordsworth - Guilt and Sorrow or Incidents upon Salisbury Plain

    To anyone who's ever truly been hungry or homeless this quote is poignant and sublime and a reminder there are many suffering right now.

    Also

    "Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other." —Abraham Lincoln quote from victory ranking.

    I miss Lincoln and the multiple leaders for each civilization.

    The many great writer quotes in the game are all excellent as well.
