Quotes by Sage (Earth-616)

Quote1.png I assess. I plan. I act. Hope is for X-Men. I -- am SAGE! Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Blame it on Charles Xavier. He doesn't just show you the best you can be, he makes it easy for you to take that to extremes. Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png But what about them? The people who aren't mutants? Who will be their champions? Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png A police report. There's been a murder. And the killer is a mutant. Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png When I was their age, we always found a way to play. We knew there was a war, we just found ways to put it out of our minds. If we pretended hard enough that there was peace, maybe our wishes would come true. But here at Xavier's I found peace. A glimpse of paradise. For a while. That's what makes this school so important. Children above all must have a sanctuary. Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I want children to be safe. Because then the future will be defined by hope. Or would you rather face a generation defined by rage and hatred? Charles Xavier and his School have their role to play. We have ours. They are complementary. They are no longer the same. Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Firstly, if you're going to be master of a martial art, make sure it's a good one. Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png There is evil in the world, my friends. I have seen its face, I bear its mark. Bogan's mark. And I will oppose it to my dying breath, and if necessary, beyond. Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Who better to blindside the monster... than a girl who can walk through walls... and, more importantly, whose mind cannot be read. Like Miss KITTY PRYDE. Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png As for the creature responsible -- it calls itself THE FURY! It doesn't know the meaning of the word. Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png They didn't figure on the kids -- and District X -- having a self-appointed guardian angel. Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I assess. I plan. I act. Hope is for the X-Men. I -- AM SAGE! Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Stop selling yourself short, Kevin, you're actually quite good at this. Perhaps you should try leading the team more often. Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)
Quote1.png There's real worry in Sabretooth's voice, a primal sense of concern. That's nice, to know he cares. But I've crossed my Rubicon. No going back for me, only ahead. Yes, I'll miss my friends. But to be honest, I wouldn't have it any other way. Quote2.png
--Sage (Earth-616)

Conversations with Sage (Earth-616)


"Tessa"
Sebastian... I suggest you look again. Closer, this time. Deeper. Past the facade of her flesh - to the flame of her heart, real and raging. Do you see what I see..? The slow, smoldering fire in her eyes...
Conversation Tail.png

Sebastian Shaw
I see no fire, Tessa, no flame... Except for the Inferno itself.
Conversation Tail.png
X-Man #22

Dazzler
So these X-Men are Xavier's puppets and we beat him by becoming yours?
Conversation Tail.png

Sage
I'll be your controller, yes. Is that a problem?
Conversation Tail.png

Dazzler
I've heard stories…
Conversation Tail.png
New Excalibur #3

Captain Britain
The reality is, we haven't much choice. The job needs doing and Sage, like it or not, is best suited for the assignment. We have to trust her judgment, and hope for the best.
Conversation Tail.png

Pete Wisdom
Like that always paid off for James Bond.
Conversation Tail.png

Sage
In point of fact, Wisdom, it always did.
Conversation Tail.png
New Excalibur #19

Sage
The authorities want me handed over for interrogation.
Conversation Tail.png

Captain Britain
This is a party, Sage. Tonight's about enjoying ourselves.
Conversation Tail.png

Sage
If I were them, Brian, I'd lock me up and throw away the key, or simply put a bullet through my head.
Conversation Tail.png

Captain Britain
That's not funny.
Conversation Tail.png

Sage
No, it isn't. But it does make sense.
Conversation Tail.png

Sage
It didn't work.
Conversation Tail.png

Lucas Bishop
I don't believe it, you're actually surprised.
Conversation Tail.png

Sage
According to my analysis--!
Conversation Tail.png

Lucas Bishop
Khan built better than you knew.

Quotes about Sage (Earth-616)

Quote1.png You're actually beautiful Sage... ...Why do you hide it? Why do you keep your true self hidden? Gotta say though, you're a whole lot tougher than anyone I've ever possessed. I may run your body, but I can't touch your memories. Your life is still totally private. Which I'm kind'a glad about. I'm not sure I ever want to learn your secrets.'' Quote2.png
--Nocturne[src]

Rogue
Think Sage'll tell us what she's got planned?
Conversation Tail.png

Shadowcat
When it's time.
Conversation Tail.png

Rogue
Don't bother you, her bein' so secret?
Conversation Tail.png

Shadowcat
Charley taught her. Charley taught Scott, Charley taught Storm. When it comes to Management Philosophy… some apples don't fall far from the tree.
Conversation Tail.png

Rogue
Amen t' that, girl!
Conversation Tail.png

Shadowcat
Makes sense actually, when you think about it. Surrounded by telepaths, the most important thing in the world becomes your privacy. Keeping secrets becomes second-nature.
Conversation Tail.png

Rogue
Makin' sense, like you said… don't make it right.
Conversation Tail.png

Nightcrawler
So Logan… you have such faith in Sage. Why?

I'm like 'ro an' Bishop-- I don't want it to be her.
Conversation Tail.png

Nightcrawler
Why?
Conversation Tail.png
James Howlett (Earth-616) from Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe X-Men 2004 Vol 1 1 0001.jpg
Wolverine
Cuz she reminds me too much of me. Damaged goods with a lot of scars on her soul that ain't her fault.
Conversation Tail.png

Nightcrawler
So you want to save her?
Conversation Tail.png
James Howlett (Earth-616) from Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe X-Men 2004 Vol 1 1 0001.jpg
