Icecrown... a monument to our suffering. The veil between life and death. Where a usurper sits on a Frozen Throne. But no king rules forever.Warcraft - World of Warcraft - Shadowlands, by Sylvanas Windrunner
Sylvanas Windrunner: 'All their hope dies with you.'
Varok Saurfang: 'You cannot kill hope. Hope remains.'
Anduin: 'Only one of us wanted this war.'
Sylvanas: 'You call for peace when it suits you, little lion. But you're quick enough to kill.'
If pride gives aus pause, my love, then perhaps we have lived long enough already.PrideWarcraft - III, by Malfurion Stormrage

[Garrosh Defeat: Horde Cinematic]
The Horde needs its true Warchief now, more than ever.
Blood and thunder, champions of the Horde! We fight on this day for our fallen brothers and sisters! Mourn them not for they all died with honor in their hearts! Though we face great conflict, our might combined shall obliterate those who would oppose us! The grave injustices committed against the Horde will be met by an unstoppable force of reckoning!War SpeechesWarcraft - World of Warcraft, by Thrall

The former can advise the latter, but the latter must be free to challenge the former, to avoid what happened.Past, GenerationsWarcraft, by Medivh
The roots will heal in time... as will the entire world. The sacrifices have been made. Just as the orcs, humans, and night elves discarded their old hatreds and stood united against a common foe, so did nature herself rise up to banish the Shadow forever. As for me, I came back to ensure that there would be a future, to teach the world that it no longer needed Guardians. The hope for future generations has always resided in mortal hands. And now that my task is done, I will take my place amongst the legends of the past.Warcraft - III - Reign of Chaos, by Medivh

Terenas: 'No king rules forever, my son.'
Arthas: 'I see... only darkness before me.'
