Quote1.png There are rules, what you're supposed to do the first day after a loved one dies...then the first week...then the first month...all the way to the first year, the first Yartzeit. The idea, I guess, is that it's supposed to take that whole year to come to terms with the loss. So the Yartzeit, it's closure, but it's more. Because when someone you love dies, it never goes away. Some days are easier than others. Some days maybe you can't think about it at all...but it never goes away. And that's all right. That's as it should be... Quote2.png

--Katherine Pryde (Earth-616)
Quote1.png The priority's stopping the nanites carrying the bioweapon. If even one gets to Earth, every mutant dies. Quote2.png
--Katherine Pryde (Earth-616)
Quote1.png We'll do what "Patch" would do. This is his city and if we're going to survive, we need to play by his rules. Quote2.png
--Katherine Pryde (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I think it's worse than that. He lost a link to his past. And a guy like Wolverine... doesn't know how many of those he has left... Quote2.png
--Katherine Pryde (Earth-616)
Quote1.png How did he get more annoying after he died? Quote2.png
--Katherine Pryde (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Maybe I'll never have a normal life, but as long as people are afraid of mutants -- as long as people like Asher are afraid of themselves -- I know where I belong.

Quote1.png Part of me feels as old as time itself. That's what reached out to Remy, that's what he responded to. But he was man enough to pull me back from that mistake. To show me a line I shouldn't cross. I'm so afraid if I ever step over that, I lose everything. Quote2.png
--Katherine Pryde (Earth-616)

Quote1.png Nightcrawler had every reason to be bitter, every excuse to become as much of a demon inside and out. But he decided he'd rather learn to laugh instead!

--Katherine Pryde (Earth-616)
