Silver Surfer Vol 3 68
Quote1 Even though he bared his Spirit to me by means of his Soul Gem and was twice instrumental in saving the Universe I still do NOT completely TRUST the Man. Perhaps it is because of the Confidence he exudese from having returned from beyond the Grave. More likely it is because Good and Evil mean nothing to him. His only Goal is protecting this Reality from his precious and powerful Infinity Gems and safeguarding them from a Universe that fears and craves them. So focused is he upon this Intent that all other Considerations become secondary. No, I am definitely NOT in the Mood for Adam Warlock. Quote2

Quote1 Your gift is love, Ellie. Your grace protects you better than I ever could. I am old, and my soul know too much of the dark to guide one born so light. Quote2
Silver Surfer Vol 5 6
Quote1 Those who sent me on my mission would not have the Earth fall into lasting darkness. They would see men evolve not regress. You and the other children will lead a new world. Quote2
Silver Surfer Vol 5 7
Quote1 I am death's angel. I am not death. Death comes unbidden, with or without my consent. To run from this truth is to give in to darkness. By remaining present, by fulfilling my task, I am reborn in light. To you, Aman, it may burn cold--but it is all I have. Quote2

Silver Surfer Vol 8 9
Quote1 For the longest time, I was only going to places I had been before. Kree space. The Negative Zone. The Milky Way. Thanks to you, I have ventured into new frontiers again. I have traveled so far in your company, sometimes it is hard to imagine the person I was before I met you. Quote2
Silver Surfer Vol 8 10
Quote1 I know you have struggled mightily to bring life to the galaxy... I am proud to see you atone for our shared legacy of destruction, but now all life as we know it is imperiled by a heinous evil, armed with the Soul Gem. I was almost... devoured by power wielded by Ultron. I would not ask if it were not a last resort. What say you, Galactus the Lifebringer?

Silver Surfer: The Prodigal Sun Vol 1 1
Quote1 Your shadow... cannot be erased. You cannot defeat the dark. But you can find the light inside of you. Protect it. Keep it from harm. Care for it. For it will be fragile. And then, when it is strong... share it. Give it away. Shine it down upon those still trapped in the shadows. And in time... perhaps... the brilliance of your light will outshine the void within. And. There. Bathed. In. Flame. You. Will. Be... forgiven. Quote2
Silver Surfer: Black Vol 1 5
Quote1 We have come to Ravenstarr for the same reason, you and I. The Starbrand. Quote2
Avengers Vol 8 28
Quote1 WHO DARES?! Who dares disturb the final resting place of Al Harper... hero and trusted friend of the Silver Surfer?! Quote2
Silver Surfer: Ghost Light Vol 1 1
Quote1 I am not a god. I have never created life... but I have lived. That is enough. So I will fight to preserve that same opportunity -- to love, to dream, to soar among the stars -- for all those yet to come. Many lives will be lost in the battle ahead -- but their efforts will ensure that some remain to remember their deeds. And, like the gods, they will truly live forever... even after they are gone. Quote2
