Nerd board of wisdom

I am a leaf in the wind.
The geek ‘verse is packed with words of wisdom, some ridiculous, some awesome. Do you recognize these quotes? Take your guesses in the comments. No cheating now.

1. “A lesson without pain is meaningless. For you cannot gain anything without sacrificing something else in return, but once you have overcome it and made it your own…you will gain an irreplaceable fullmetal heart.”

2. “Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”

3. “Mercy is the mark of a great man.” [stab] “Guess I’m just a good man.” [stab] “Well, I’m all right.”

4. “Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.”

5. “Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!”

6. “Don’t panic.”

7. “Don’t blink.”

8. “Rule #2: The double tap.”

9. “It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. That is not a weakness; that is life.”

10. “You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn’t true. I know a lot about love. I’ve seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable.”
