Silver Surfer Vol 3 68
Quote1.png 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.png

Silver Surfer Vol 5 7
Quote1.png 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.png

And, like the gods, the will truly live forever...even after they are gone. Quote2.png

Silver Surfer Vol 8 10
Quote1.png 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: Black Vol 1 3
Quote1.png All you've done is given me something to occupy my time until my master arrives... which he has. The end of this world is imminent. I would depart if I were you. Quote2.png
Silver Surfer: The Prodigal Sun Vol 1 1
Quote1.png 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.png

Avengers Vol 8 28
Quote1.png 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.png
