(Feel free to add/invent any you may have heard.)

From Chad

  • "Call me a hippie again, I fucking dare you."
  • "Here's how it is: Roosevelt wasn't a nine foot tall fur-covered murder-beast so of course he spoke softly. As the proud owner of goddamn shapeshifting powers, over two decades of training in the secret art of fucking shit up for Gaia through stick based carnage and being granted the go-button from the moon to speak loudly and often it is an offense to our people to be all soft-spoken!"
  • "We are not a tribe of peace. While we are certainly striving for it as an end goal that is not the core virtue espoused by Unicorn's chosen. Think about what is needed to achieve peace, that is where our tribe finds focus. What is needed at the very core of our being is hope. And that is what we are a tribe of. We are the endless river of hope that pushes the Nation toward a better tomorrow."

From Others

(Feel free to add quotes)

  • "Chad is the brother I never had growing up, and it's always fun to bust heads with him. He takes Roosevelt's adage about the stick pretty seriously." - Michael Anders
  • "Broken Halo regards being a Galliard in the same way I do, so I can share the tale-telling in our sept with him without any qualms. He can also be an irritating son of a bitch, but when it comes to it, his principles are in the right place." --Laughs Last
  • "He's really cool. He does justice to the awesome Children of Gaia I've seen in my day. Reasonable leaders like Broken Halo are totally what will win the war for Gaia." - Simon Kressin
  • "Broken Halo is a bright torch in a time in desperate need of light. I pray that gaia does not see to end his light too early." Steel Vice Bite
  • "I can count the number of leaders I truly respect on both hands. Broken Halo is one of my middle fingers." — James "Reach For The Sky" MacNamara
  • "A wise and learned Galliard. I didn't realize Children of Gaia could including hugging into so many of their Rites." - Jìde
  • "I have a lot to learn from Chad, but I never realized how...young he really is. He is my superior in so very many ways, and yet lying beneath all of his learning, his accomplishments, and his passions is a very young man with very human concerns and anxieties. Remarkable, really, how the extraordinary can also be simple, and pure." - Wisdom of Babel
  • "It can be absolutely exhausting and aggravating to be around Chad. His capacity to turn words around and pin you with your own logic, your own reasoning is infuriating. He is stubborn as an ox, enjoys poking the bear and is meddlesome and pushes hard when common sense would dictate to do otherwise. He has also made me laugh the hardest, has kept me alive more times than I can count and he is the truest friend you could have. I am so very lucky to call him a packmate." Sabine Silver Swift

From Reality and Fiction

  • "The future belongs to the few of us still willing to get our hands dirty.” - Roland Tiangco
  • "I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark would burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.” - Jack London
  • "Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in that grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
