Underworld WisdomWhy shoot someone from the front when you can shoot them from the back? Shooting said person in the back is far less dangerous.
If you want to doublecross someone make sure that they will not put a bounty on you.
If you double cross someone and that person ends up dead you are ahead of the game.
Why sell someone a ship and let them keep it when you can sell that person a ship, shoot that person and keep the money.
If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?
Lawless are they that make their wills their law.
Temptation is the fire that brings up the scum of the heart.
You can get much farther with a kind word and a gun than you can with a kind word alone.
The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.
Strength lies not in defence but in attack.
No one is entitled to the truth.
E. Howard Hunt
Don't fight a battle if you don't gain anything by winning.
In a man-to-man fight, the winner is he who has one more round in his magazine.
No one rises so high as he who knows not whither he is going. Not only strike while the iron is hot, but make it hot by striking. Do not trust the cheering, for those persons would shout as much if you or I were going to be hanged.
When the enemy advances, withdraw; when he stops, harass; when he tires, strike; when he retreats, pursue.
You will kill 10 of our men, and we will kill 1 of yours, and in the end it will be you who tire of it.
Ho Chi Minh
A lie told often enough becomes the truth.
Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
One man with a gun can control 100 without one.
Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
There are no morals in politics; there is only expedience. A scoundrel may be of use to us just because he is a scoundrel.
Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
Ability is nothing without opportunity.
You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your art of war.
Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.
Few things are brought to a sucessful issue by impetuous desire, but most by calm and prudent forethought.
He who knows how to flatter also knows how to slander.
Men are more easily governed through their vices than through their virtues.
The best way to keep one's word is not to give it.
Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.
All we ask is to be let alone.
Neither current events nor history show that the majority rule, or ever did rule.
Death solves all problems - no man, no problem.
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
When you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. When you have the law on your side, argue the law. When you have neither, holler.
Al Gore, Jr.
Do nothing which is of no use.
Underworld WisdomA Few Good Men
"What do we do then, sir? We joined the Corps 'cause we wanted to live our lives by a certain code. And we found it in the Corps. And now you're asking us to sign a piece of paper that says we have no honor. You're asking us to say we're not Marines. If a judge and jury decide that what we did was wrong, I'll accept whatever punishment they give. But I believe I was riqht, sir. I believe I did my Job. And I won't dishonor myself, my unit, or the Corps, so that I can qo home in six months. Sir."
"Son, we live in a world that has walls. And those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall. You NEED me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty…we use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. You use 'em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it. I'd prefer you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you're entitled to."
"Why do you like them so much?"
"Because they stand on a wall and say, 'Nothing is going to hurt you tonight, not on my watch."
Underworld WisdomThe quickest way to a man's heart, is through a gaping hole in his sternum.
Underworld Wisdom"Shot first, ask questions later…"
"Never trust a Hutt until he burns in his funeral fire…"

Underworld Wisdom"If you love something, set it free, but, if it doesn't come back to you, track it down and kill it." – Not sure who said it. It might not be the exact words either. It's just how I remember it.
Underworld WisdomThe best defence is a good offense, kill um all
Underworld WisdomHell is other people.
Underworld Wisdom"Build a man a fire, and he will be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he will be warm for the rest of his life."
Underworld WisdomHeaven on my right, Hell on my left, the Angel of Death behind me.
Underworld WisdomIf you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, set it on fire.
