The Babylon Quotes Project

From Babylon 5 "A View from the Gallery" written by J. Michael Straczynski
  • "Though cruel and capricious, bringing us into a world that fears and and hates us, nature did not leave us entirely without protection."
  • "The universe hates me, you know."
  • "I spent my years in one shelter after another, but sooner or later I was able to leave the shelter and walk out into the daylight. You do not have that luxury. You carry your shelter with you every day. You did not grow up, you grew old."
  • "So, how long you figure they've been married?"
  • "Man, did you see that smile? It's like the sun coming out from behind a cloud."
  • "My mother used to tell me, 'God knows the age of every tree and the color of every flower, and He knows just how wide your shoulders are. And he'll never give you anything to carry that's bigger than you can handle.'" "Then maybe that's what this whole place is about. Maybe that's what you have to do to get by in a place like this." "What's that?" "Grow bigger shoulders."
  • "Yeah, typical. They call all the shots, they get all the glory, we clean up all the mess." "Well, maybe not all the mess."
