We all love the Warhammer 40,000 universe and some of us have been around for some time. One aspect of the universe that I find really cool is the many exellent quotes and bits of fluffy text found throughout books and novels.
Here are a few of my favorites:

'They shall be my finest warriors, these men who give themselves to me.
Like clay I shall mould them and in the furnace of war I shall forge them.
They will be of iron will and steely muscle.
In great armour shall I clad them and with the mightiest gun shall they be armed.
They will be untouched by plague or disease, no sickness will blight them.
They will have tactics, strategies and machines such that no foe will 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 Emperor of Man


'Another day nearer the battle
So drink up, lads and look brave.
For another day nearer the battle
Is another day nearer the grave.'

Imperial Guard drinking song


'Some may question your right to destroy ten billion people. But those who understand realise that you have no right to let them live.'

-In Exterminatus Extremis


'Do not ask which creature screams in the night.
Do not ask who crouches in the shadow.
For it is my voice that wakes you in the night
And me who watches you from the shadow.
I am Tzeentch and you are the puppet
That dances to my tune.

Karazantor the Vile, Traitor of Xian


'Orkses is never beaten in battle. If we win we win, if we die so it don't count as beat. If we runs for it we don't die neither, so we can always come back for anuvver go, see!'

-Anon


'They have only one purpose and there is nothing they will not do to accomplish this, no matter how vile or loathsome it might be. These abominations mean to destroy everything proud and noble, everything we hold dear and have fought so long to achieve.'

-Inqisitor Agmar on Tyranids


'A Heretic may see the truth and seek redemption. He may be forgiven his past and will be absolved in death. A Traitor can never be forgiven. A Traitor will never find peace in this world or the next. There is nothing as wretched or as hated in all the world as a Traitor.'

-Cardinal Khrysdam, Instructum Absolutio


'Listen but closely Brothers, for my life's breath is all but spent. There shall come a time far from now when our Chapter itself is dying, even as I am now dying, and our foes shall gather to destroy us. Then my children, I shall listen for your call in whatever realm of death holds me, and come I shall, no matter what the laws of life and death forbid. At the end I will be there. For the final battle. For the Wolftime.

-Last words of Leman Russ, Primarch of the Space Wolves


'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 to have stirred the cold furrow of mortal life.
I embrace death without regret as I embraced life without fear.'

-Kargos Bloodspitter, Champion of Khorne


'We're the Death Korp of Krieg, son. Did you think that was just a pretty name? We never retreat. We fight and we die, that's the Krieg way.'

-Lieutenant Konarski at the Battle of Erebus, Tarsis Ultra

"I am truly disappointed that cruel fate has placed us in this position, such that I really have no choice other than to unleash my warriors against your population centres. If only you would lay aside these foolish hopes of protecting your resources and return to your homes and families, much bloodshed and woe could be avoided. Yet...there is still time, any who leave now will be spared and I give you my word that they will be granted free passage through the wastes. This offer of amnesty will stand for two of your hours before the terror begins anew. I can only hope that you consider your position carefully. Send forth a representative to discuss further terms if you wish, or send several if you cannot trust one of your number to speak for the rest. I feel sure that they all can be...accomodated."

- Asdrubael Vect, Supreme Lord of the Kabal of the Black Heart

If I think of anymore, I'll post them but this one always stuck out in my mind because of the person who was saying it.

these are from the old Space marine codex

"to admit defeat is to blaspheme against the Emperor"
Roboute Guilliman Primarch of the Ultramarines


The enemies of the Emperor fear many things.

They fear discovery, defeat, despair and death.

Yet there is one thing they fear above all others.

They fear the wrath of the Space Marines!

Here's some more I found while going over my codicies.

"Curses! Just when you've finally managed to bring the whole world under your evil influence some pathetic little Inquisitor goes whining off to the Adeptus Terra about rogue psykers and daemonic possession. I mean, do I look posssessed? Well, do I? DO I???" - Personal Log of Lord Varlak, 995.M41 (during the Purging of Korsk II)

"There is no such thing as a plea of innocence in my court. A plea of innocence is guilty of wasting my time. Guilty." - Inquisitor Lord Fyodor Karamazov

That one is actually a lot older than DoW. It was about in 2nd edition, although I can't remember who said it.

"Only the insane have the strength enough to prosper. Only those who prosper may truly judge what is sane." - Anon.

"I don't have time to die - I'm too busy!" - Last words of Gorge Vandire, 304th Master of the Administratum.

"He was an avalanche from an unexpected quarter. He was a thunderbolt from a clear sky." - Commissar Yarrick on Ghazkul Mag Uruk Thraka.

"Remember a war is easily won if your enemy does not know he is fighting." - Lord Commander Solar Macharius

"Make no mistake, human. We do not fight for your Emperor. We fight against Horus." - anon. Eldar

"Fear me, for I am your apocalypse." - Dictat Eversor

"What is the terror of death?
That we die our work incomplete!
What is the joy of life?
To die knowing our task is done!" - don't know who said this, but it was associated with the Dark Angels in an Inferno comic strip.

Emperor: "Get up, Konrad Curze, for I have come to take you home."
Night Haunter: "That is not my name, Father. I am Night Haunter and I know full well what you intend for me."

"The green tide of Orkdom is upon us, and there can be no retreat. No surrender. If we surive this day it will be a miracle." - approximately (my memory's bad), Commissar Yarrick before the Battle of Hades Hive, 2nd War for Armageddon

"Though my sentries may sleep and my ships may rest at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire." - Lufgt Huron, Master of the Astral Claws chapter, the Tyrant of Badab

A clarification really:

Give me a hundred Space Marines. Or failing that a thousand other troops.

"Claims of innocence prove nothing but a foolish lack of caution" (can't remember who said it)

"The more I learn about these aliens, the more I come to understand what drives them, the more I hate them. I hate them for what they are and for what they may one day become. I hate them not because they hate us but because they are incapable of good, honest, human hatred."
- Inquisitor Angmar On Tyranids


"the worst is yet to come" (anon Realm of chaos).

And my all time favorite

"You are not free whose liberty is won by the rigour of other, more righteous souls. Your are merely protected. Your freedom is parasitic, you suck the honourable man dry and offer nothing in return. You who have enjoyed freedom, who have done nothing to earn it, your time has come. This time you will stand alone and fight for yourselves. Now you will pay for your freedom in the currency of honest toil and human blood."
- Inquisitor Czevak Address to the Council of Ryanti

More to come I hope

Hopefully someone who has access to a 2nd ed codex imperialis can fix this for me but from memory:

I have entered the Black Library of the Eldar and conversed with its most terrible guardian. I tell you that the Eldar are doomed and so are we. When the might of the Eldar fails, not all the armies of the Imperium will serve to protect us. Even now our doom stalks us across the stars.
Inquisitor Czevak to a conclave of Inquisitors.

In case you can't figure it out its one of the very first hints at the existence of the Necrons.

"You have commited the ultimate heresy. Not only have you turned your back on the Emperor and stepped from His light, you have profaned His name and almost destroyed everything He has striven to build. You have perverted and twisted the path He has laid for Mankind to tread. As your own decrees have stated, there can be no mercy for such a crime, no pity for such a criminal. I renounce your lordship. You walk in the darkness and can not be allowed to live. Your sentence has been long overdue, and now it is time for you to die."

Saint Domonica to Evil Lord Vandire

This is by far my favorite quote ever.;) It's just so cool!

"All models automatically have the Sorcerer ability without having to select the upgrade from their list entry. In addition they will automatically pass any psychic Tests they are requred to take."
