The Kali Krew Presents: Quotable Quotes

Quotes are an interesting subject. They can be funny lines that you just can’t get out of your head. Or they tell a truth that is so timeless that it just strikes a chord with you and you can’t forget it. Games haven’t always been known for their strength in dialogue but sometimes they hit it just right. Especially in more recent games.

This week the Kali Krew shares their favourite quotes from books, movies, and games. We tried to keep it to more recent books (the last ten or twenty years, at least, except for one of us who couldn’t think of anything more recent. I’m sure you can guess who. Check out our Quotable Quotes down below!

Signs Preceding the End of the World by Yuri Herrera

Chosen by Brian

“She looked out at the country mushrooming on the other side of the glass. She knew what it contained, its colors, the penury and the opulence, hazy memories of a less cynical time, villages emptied of men. But on contemplating the tense stillness of the night, the darkness dotted here and there with sparks, on sensing that insidious silence, she wondered, vaguely, what the hell might be festering out there: what grows and rots when you’re looking the other way. ‘What’s going to appear?’ she whispered to herself, pretending that as soon as they passed that lamppost, or that one, or that one she’d see what it was that had been going on in the shadows. Maybe a whole slew of new things, maybe even some good things, or maybe not. Not even in make-believe did she get her hopes up too high.”
