            "Londo, has it occurred to you that half the other races are at war? We have to figure out what to do about them. About us. And you are worried about G'Kar. We have a lot bigger concerns here."

              "And they have much to be concerned about. There's always the threat of an attack by, say, a giant space dragon—the kind that eats the sun every 30 days? It's a nuisance, but what can you expect from reptiles? Did I mention that my nose is on fire, and that I have 15 wild badgers living in my trousers?"

                    "In ten or twenty years, this will become a legend. Some people won't even believe that I existed. I don't think I mind that, not at all, really. It's what we all want, isn't it? To become something larger than ourselves, to enter living memory...Have them talk about us when we've gone."

                      I was just thinking about it all.
                      Everything we've done and what I said earlier.
                      And I was wondering if they will remember us Then I figured, probably not.

                              At least a dozen ships have reported seeing something rather godlike in the area and since neither you nor I were there, it must be one of the First Ones.
                              "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

I will not ignore Ivanova's recommendations. Ivanova is God. And, if this happens again, Ivanova will rip your lungs out! Babylon Control out."
