Only the insane have strength enough to prosper. Only those who prosper may truly judge what is sane. is the actual line. First seen in Rogue Trader, and I'm pretty sure it's been in every 40K rulebook since.

I like


Through the gates that stand between the mortal world and the immortal Realm of Chaos are now closed to me, still I would rather die having glimpsed eternity than never to have stirred the cold furrow of mortal life.

I embrace death without regret as I embraced life without fear.

and

Contact with alien races always renews ones faith in humanity. It's my belief that foreign travel narrows the mind wonderfully.

Across dozens of worlds as the banners of traitors are held high and the galaxy burns, a single shout of defiance echoes across the Imperium: "Death to the false Emperor!"

Heres another one,

I murdered thousands for the Emperor and he gave me nothing except his damning silence. Now his lapdogs yap for every life I take, while the gods promise me the galaxy.

Here's a good one

"Cast down the idols! Destroy the temples! Slay the priests! Show these fools that they worship nothing more than a rotting corpse!"

That's all for now, also i like

"Pray they don't take you alive...."

A single man with faith can triumph over a legion of the faithless. Untold billions of the faithful can never be opposed.

I tread the path of righteousness. though it be paved with broken glass. I walk it barefoot; though it cross rivers of fire, I will pass over them; though it wanders wide, the light of the Emperor guides my step

The dead must join our ranks, lest we be forced to join theirs.

Ask not the eldar a question, for they will give you three answers, all of which are true and terrifying to know.

He who sees his own doom can better avoid its path. He who sees the doom of others can deliver it.

The stars themselves once lived and died at our command, yet you still dare to oppose our will.

My personal favourite, from various editions of the rulebook:

Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be re-learned. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods.

I like the first part of this quote a lot

"We fight the long war, not through vain notions of duty or honour, but through a far purer purpose: hatred. At the height of out glory we were betrayed and cast out by our own kin. Guilliman, Dorn, Sanguinius - these are names that I curse. Horus, Peturabo, Angron - these are names I revere, names I would follow to the very end. It is hatred that has sustained me through the long millenia. I tend it with bitterness. I nurture it with the deaths of my former brothers. For I know that when the end is upon us and Horus is returned, then the False Emperor shall be cast down from his sepulchral Golden Throne, and we shall take our rightful place at the side of Horus, the true Emperor of Mankind"- Ferrous Ironclaw - Warsmith of the Iron Warriors Second Grand Company.

My favourite quote has to be from the Dark Eldar Codex. Dark Eldar are such a misunderstood race. They are actually quite cuddly.

Eyes without life,
maggot-ridden corpses,
mountains of skulls,
These are some of my favourite things.

Though my guards may rest and ships may lie at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.


Even a man who does not possess anything can still give his life.


In the embrace of father Nurgle I am no longer afraid, for with his pestilential favor I have become that which I once feared, Death.


Wot's faster than a warbuggy, more killy than a warbike and flies through the air like a bird?
I got no bleedin' idea, but i'm gonna find out.

-Kog the Flymek, pioneer of the Dethkopta


Knowledge is power. Hide it well.


Blessed is the mind too small for doubt.


"Your honor is your life, let none dispute it."



My armour is contempt.




I also like, "The galaxy is a big place and whatever happens you will not be missed"


"Harriers for the cup!" - Ciaphas Cain, HERO OF THE IMPERIUM!



"Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment."


When cities burn and armies turn,
And flee in disarray.
Cowards cry 'tis best to fly,
And fight another day!
But warriors know it in their marrow,
When they die, and fall.
'Tis better to have fought, and lost.
Than to not have fought at all.


Victory needs no explanation, defeat allows none.



"Some may question your right to kill a billion souls. Those who understand know there is no reason you should let them live." Exterminatus Extremis in the 4th ed rulebook.

"Give me but a thousand men who are crazy enough to want to conquer Hell, and we will conquer Hell!" - Not sure who this was now, some IG commander.

The full "They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear" thing from the 5th Edition book, by the Big E himself.

"Another day nearer the battle
So drink up lads and look brave
'Cause another day nearer the battle
Is another day nearer the grave" - Warriors song of the Imperial Guard.

"There is a terrible darkness descending on the galaxy, and we shall not see it ended in our lifetimes" - Inquisitor Czevak.

"For every battle honour, a thousand heroes die alone, unsung and unremembered" -Proverb.

A few may have already been posted, but (All the one liners from DoW1 and DoW2)

To the last man, and the last round.

Faith is the blade of war.

Only in death does duty end.

Annoint them in their own blood.

After a thousand battles, one only see's death.

No retreat, no surrender.

Glory to the first to die.

I fear no evil, for I am fear incarnate.

A plea of innocences is guilty of wasting my time.

One or a thousand, I will kill them all.

Faith and duty.

Courange and honor.

Follow me, and I promise you glory.

So it is as proclaimed and decree'd by holy writ.

Knowladge is power, Hide it well.

Beware the alien, the mutant, the hertic.

I can change the course of battle.

We strike with the wrath of the rightous.

By my blade, they shall know the emprorers name.

We act as one, lest we perish alone.

Redemption through sword and fire.

Faith is purest when it is unquestioning.

Death and fate have taken the stage.

For the Emporer.

You have been told of the inquisition
that shadowy organisation which defends mankind and the emperor from the perils of heresy, possession, alien dominance, and rebellion

You have been told
the inquisition are the ultimate defense against the phantoms of fear and terror which lurk in the darkness between the stars.

You have been told
the inquisition are the bright saviors in an eclipse of evil: purest and most devoted warriors of the emperor

you have been told
the inquisition is united in its cause to rid the galaxy of any threat, from without or within.


EVERYTHING YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD IS A LIE!

and
EYES WITHOUT LIFE,
MAGGOT-RIDDEN CORPSES,
MOUNTAINS OF SKULLS,
these are a few of my favorite things. -Drachon Borkor

We are the warriors of the grey knights, armored in faith, shielded by devotion, and armed with purity of purpose. But greater even than these, we carry the light of the divine Emperor of mankind into the dark places to purge the daemonic wherever it may be found. -Brother Captain Stern

Daemon hunters would fight chaos because:

There was one that ran "Bring shot and bring shell and heap all upon the fire (or pyre)." There's more, but I cannot remember it.

My favorite of all:

"I have heard tales of sorcerors that can forecast your doom, warriors whose screams freeze the blood, machines that fight with the grace of a dancer, and fiery daemons that cannot die. None of these concerned me. None posed any threat to a man with the might of the Imperial Guard at his command.

None save their aircraft. When fighting the Eldar, watch the skies..." - Col. Ishmail Mott

A new one: "This is not war, it is a culling; the eradication of an animal grown too numerous and troublesome to tolerate..." - Autarch Miricalla Nightchild, of the Altansar

Two from Hellebore:
"It is a vibrant tapestry, war. When the art flows true, a masterpiece forms; a masterpiece painted in blood." - Autarch Hyraleliol

A bit much from the pointy-eared. From the Greenskins:
"Da oomies don't know what real fightin' iz. Dey don't even know 'ow ta pron... prunow... er... say it right. It's WAAAGH! not war. And dat's why dey lose." - Evil Sun Zu

"I am an artist, for the God-emperor's sake!A soft protected artist froma secure world where death happened behind close doors or drawn curtains. For all I tried to make my work contain such eternal cincepts as Truth and Grace, Nobility and Humanitiy, they were empty gestures. My work was empty. I despised everything I had ever done, all the artistic triumphs I had been so pleased with. They were nothing, barren, vapid. Devoid of any real human truth.
Real truth was out there in the shattered outhabs of Vervunhive. Real truth was waiting and silence,courage and steakth. Real truth was the ability to function in extremes. To fire a cannon and miss and try again. to fix a straight silver blade to the end of a las-weapon and leap from safety into a shroud of smoke, prepared as you do so to really use that makeshift spear.
Real truth was as real as a tiny hole in a man's forehead."

"WE ARE CURIOUS, WE HAVE FOLLOWED YOUR INTRUSION INTO OUR SANCTUARY,OUR ANTRUM AND ADYTUM. THEN WE WIL STRIP YOUR SOUL BARE.

They shall be my fines warriors, these men who give of themselves to me. Like clay I shall mould them and in the furnace of war forge them. THey will be of iron will and steely muscle. In great armour shall i clad them and with the mightiest guns will they be armed. They will be untouched by pllague or disease, no sickness will blight them. They will have tactics, strategies and machines such that no foe can best them in battle. They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my Space Marines and they shall know no fear.

The entire quote is just so epic it had to be posted.

"Your presence does not surprise me assassin. I have known of you ever since your craft entered the Eastern Fringes. Why did I not have you killed? Because your mission and the act you are about to commit proves the truth of all I have ever said or done.
