Default Quotes for Tau (and newly made ones)


It was just yesterday that I noticed an awesome quote in the Tau Empire Codex.
Just read the quote of Major Kane on p14 of the codex >
"One of their light walkers carried a weapon of lethal effect. it fired a form of ultra velocity projectile. I saw one of our tanks after having been hit by it. There was a small hole punched in either flank - one the projectile's entry point, the other its exit. The tiny munition had passed trough the vehicle with such speed that everything within the hull not welded down had been sucked out trough the exit hole. Including the crew. We never identified their bodies, for all that remained of them was a red stain upon the ground, extending some twenty meters from the wreck."
[sup](I hope I may quote out from the book[/sup]

Dreadfull weapon the railgun ... now I know what it exactly does.

Anyone else saw a cool quote that reminded him of the Tau (or is already in a book of WH 40k)?

"There is no other definition of [Greater Good] valid for us than that of the abolition of the exploitation of [Species by Species (Or something to similar effect)]." -Che Guevara


Edited Obviously, Heh . . . Yeah, I think its appropriate as the Tau often liberate many individuals from many civilizations as long as they help civilization or leave it alone at least. So this modified Ernesto Guevara de la Serna quote, or better known as Che, seems best suited for the greater good. Plus this sentence has that sort of manifest destiny sound to it, don't you think?

Heres another from my Tau commander:

"If they don't choose to stand at our side for the Greater Good, then they shall fall in its wake"

Khaki: shouldn't that be a quote from "Che Gue'Vesa"? *lol*

My favorite quote from the Tau Empire Codex found on page 16:

"The strength of your force may be calculated by multiplying its weight by its velocity. Strive always to maximize both and victory shall be yours."
-Commander Puretide

And one for the kroot fans on page 17:

"They are fierce indeed these Kroot, and savage. I look upon them and tremble at their ferocity. I can only hope that when the enemy sees them they tremble as I do."
-Por'vre Tau Cho

I have always wondered how much of an inside joke they intended that to be. :

Anyone read Starship Troopers by Heinlein? Tons of easily convertible quotes in there. Best one (kinda OT):
"Violence has solved more issues in history than has any other factor"

"Each must find their own way, If those in our heartland had witnessed the savageries of the void as have we they would know this. The hand of each of the great starfarers is turned against the other; none will join their strength together just to see their ancient enemies prosper. Neither should we."

Not specifically for Tau, but it seem to fit the 40k universe quite well. (Though I imagine no SM would ever use it)

The Commando's Prayer

Give me, my God, what you still have;
Give me what no one asks for.
I do not ask for wealth, nor success,
nor even health.

People ask you so often, God, for all that,
that you cannot have any left.

Give me, my God, what you still have.
Give me what people refuse to accept from you.
I want insecurity and disquietude;
I want turmoil and brawl.

And if you should give them to me,
my God, once and for all,
let me be sure to have them always,
for I will not always
have the courage to ask for them.
