Watchmen quotes by Terry Pratchett
#1. Upstairs, in what had been until then the cash office, Young Sam slept peacefully in a makeshift bed. One day, Vimes hoped, he would be able to tell him that on one special night he'd been guarded by four troll watchmen. They'd been off duty but volunteered to come in for this, and were just itching for some dwarfs to try anything. Sam hoped the boy would be impressed; the most other kids could hope for was angels. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Watchmen quotes by Joel Silver
#2. When I read 'Watchmen,' it changed my view of so many things. It was the first time I'd read a graphic novel really like that. #Quote by Joel Silver
Watchmen quotes by Alan Moore
#3. I'm 65 years old. Everyday the future looks a little bit darker. But the past, even the grimy parts of it, well, it just keeps on getting brighter all the time. #Quote by Alan Moore
Watchmen quotes by Samuel R. Delany
#4. There is nothing left to watch but fire and the night: circle within circle, light within light. Messages arrive in the net where discrete pulses cross. Parametal engines of joy and disaster give them wave and motion. We interpret and defeat their terms by terminus. The night? What of it. It is filled with bestial watchmen, trammeling the extremities and the interstices of the timeless city, portents fallen,
constellated deities plummeting in ash and smoke, roaming the apocryphal cities, the cities of speculation and reconstituted disorder, of insemination and incipience, swept round with the dark. #Quote by Samuel R. Delany
Watchmen quotes by Alan Moore
#5. Roschach's Journal: October 12th, 1985
Dog carcass in alley this morning, tire tread on burst stomach. This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face.
The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown.
The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!" ... and I'll look down and whisper "No. #Quote by Alan Moore
Watchmen quotes by Mark Batterson
#6. It's no coincidence that being watchful and prayerful are coupled by the apostle Paul in his letter to the Colossians: "Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful." The word watchful is a throwback to the ancient watchmen whose job it was to sit on the city walls and scan the horizon for attacking armies or trading caravans. They saw sooner and further than anyone else. Prayer opens our spiritual eyes so we see sooner and further. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Watchmen quotes by Alan Moore
#7. When I was working upon the ABC books, I wanted to show different ways that mainstream comics could viably have gone, that they didn't have to follow 'Watchmen' and the other 1980s books down this relentlessly dark route. It was never my intention to start a trend for darkness. I'm not a particularly dark individual. #Quote by Alan Moore
Watchmen quotes by Truman Capote
#8. I am one of those persons who, when sexually immersed, require serious silence, the hush of impeccable concentration. Perhaps it is due to my pubescent training as a Hershey Bar whore, and because I have consistently willed myself to accommodate unscintillating partners - whatever the reason, for me to reach an edge and fall over, all the mechanics must be assisted by the deepest fantasizing, an intoxicating mental cinema that does not welcome lovemaking chatter.
The truth is, I am rarely with the person I am with, so to say; and dependence upon an inner scenery, imagined and remembered erotic fragments, shadows irrelevant to the body above or beneath us - those images our minds accept inside sexual seizure but exclude once the beast has been routed, for, regardless of how tolerant we are, these cameos are intolerable to the meanspirited watchmen within us. #Quote by Truman Capote
Watchmen quotes by Neil Gaiman
#9. My very small part in WATCHMEN is that, every now and then, Alan would phone me: 'Neil, you're an educated man. Where does it say ... '
He would need a quote from the Bible, or an essay about owls. I was his occasional research assistant. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Watchmen quotes by William Blake
#10. The morning comes, the night decays, the watchmen leave their stations. #Quote by William Blake
Watchmen quotes by Alan Moore
#11. Please! Don't all leave. Somebody has to do it, don't you see? Somebody has to save the world ... #Quote by Alan Moore
Watchmen quotes by Paul Eluard
#12. The front windows as are the watchmen of grief - I've been looking beyond expectation - Beyond myself - and I do not know as I love you - Which one of us is missing. #Quote by Paul Eluard
Watchmen quotes by Susanna Clarke
#13. It's not easy to convey to someone who doesn't read comics just how Alan Moore has dominated the field since 'Watchmen.' #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Watchmen quotes by Patton Oswalt
#14. And you'll walk in rolling your eyes and you'll walk out whistling sadly through your teeth because the fuel of the Nerd Mafia is disappointment and exclusion.
- On the Watchmen movie #Quote by Patton Oswalt
Watchmen quotes by Zack Snyder
#15. One of the things I think is important about 'Watchmen' is that it have resonance within cinematic pop culture as well as superhero culture. #Quote by Zack Snyder
Watchmen quotes by J. Michael Straczynski
#16. Anyone who sets foot into the 'Watchmen' universe and isn't just a little nervous should be given a few days of electroshock therapy. I've always considered 'Watchmen' to be one of the best graphic novels ever written, and when it came out back in 1986 I was as blown away as everyone else. Just masterful. #Quote by J. Michael Straczynski
Watchmen quotes by Charles Dickens
#17. How many young men, in all previous times of unprecedented steadiness, had turned suddenly wild and wicked for the same reason, and, in an ecstasy of unrequited love, taken to wrench off door-knockers, and invert the boxes of rheumatic watchmen! #Quote by Charles Dickens
Watchmen quotes by Dawn Powell
#18. There was gray train smoke over the town most days, it smelled of travel, of transcontinental trains about to flash by, of important things about to happen. The train smell sounded the 'A' for Lamptown and then a treble chord of frying hamburger and onions and boiling coffee was struck by Hermann Bauer's kitchen, with a sostenuto of stale beer from Delaney's back door. These were all busy smells and seemed a 6 to 6 smell, a working town's smell, to be exchanged at the last factory whistle for the festival night odors of popcorn, Spearmint chewing gum, barber-shop pomades, and the faint smell of far-off damp cloverfields. Mornings the cloverfields retreated when the first Columbus local roared through the town. Bauer's coffee pot boiled over again, and the factory's night watchmen filed into Delaney's for their morning beer. #Quote by Dawn Powell
Watchmen quotes by William Moseley
#19. It seems like they make every comic book into a film. 'Watchmen' is my favorite of all time. #Quote by William Moseley
Watchmen quotes by Richard Wurmbrand
#20. The bride says, "The watchmen who go about the city found me; I said, 'Have you seen the one I love?' Scarcely had I passed by them, when I found the one I love. I held him and would not let him go, until I had brought him to the house of my mother, and into the chamber of her who conceived me" (3:3,4). The watchmen of the city represent church leaders. Some brides fall in love with them and with their ornate services and beautiful sermons and forget to seek the Bridegroom. Jesus is found only when every creature has been left behind. #Quote by Richard Wurmbrand
Watchmen quotes by Varg Vikernes
#21. A light elf guardian was in Ancient Scandinavia called a fylgja (follower, guardian spirit.). This was a spirit following you wherever you went, removing obstacles in your way, helping you find your way and avoid getting lost, protecting you from injury and death, from eating poisonous food and drinking bad water, from dangerous predators and so forth. It was your guardian angel. Some claimed that the fylgja even walked before you, in front of you, to spot any traps and harm before it could affect you. They were then, when seen by others walking before you, called vardeger (watchmen, guardians.). #Quote by Varg Vikernes
Watchmen quotes by Jim Lee
#22. 'Watchmen' is a cornerstone of both DC Comics' publishing history and its future. #Quote by Jim Lee
Watchmen quotes by Alan Moore
#23. Laurie:
Her pain, her fears, her whole life, y' know? I mean, ordinary people, right? All the things that happen to them... doesn't that move you more than a bunch of rubble? #Quote by Alan Moore
Watchmen quotes by Zack Snyder
#24. People always come up to me now and say, 'Watchmen' is the best superhero movie ever made.' I'm always saying 'That's super cool. That's nice of you to say.' But it happens now, more and more and more than it did when it first came out. #Quote by Zack Snyder
Watchmen quotes by Zack Snyder
#25. 'Watchmen' is like the music you feel is written just for you. 'That's my song, no one else gets that but me.' That's why the fan base is so rabid, because they feel personal about it. #Quote by Zack Snyder
Watchmen quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#26. Vanity finds in self-love so powerful an ally that it storms, as it were, by a coup de main,, the citadel of our heads, where, having blinded the two watchmen, it readily descends into the heart. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Watchmen quotes by Kendare Blake
#27. I'm no superhero. If anything I'm Rorschach from Watchmen. I'm Grendel. I'm the survivor in Silent Hill. #Quote by Kendare Blake
Watchmen quotes by Zack Snyder
#28. The challenge with 'Watchmen' is making sure that the ideas that were in the book got into the movie. That was my biggest stretch. I wanted people to watch the movie and get it. It's one of those things where, over time, it has happened more. #Quote by Zack Snyder
Watchmen quotes by Zack Snyder
#29. Twenty years ago my parents wouldn't know who the X-Men were, and now everybody knows that stuff. It means that deconstruction of the superhero is something you can do. All those movies have led to a point where we can finally have 'Watchmen' with a Superman character who doesn't want to save the world and a Batman who has trouble in bed. #Quote by Zack Snyder
Watchmen quotes by Zack Snyder
#30. I mean, like, I can go in a room and say, look, 'Watchmen' should be at least 15 minutes longer than 'Batman.' I mean, that's, like, any geek will tell you that. #Quote by Zack Snyder
Watchmen quotes by Zack Snyder
#31. I aim my movies, as much as I can, at myself. I think that those movies have an interesting quality. They're very movieish. They are movie movies. Like I think Watchmen is a very self-aware movie. 300. Dawn of the Dead definitely. That's really where I've ended up. #Quote by Zack Snyder
Watchmen quotes by Umar
#32. On every dishonest man, there are two watchmen, his possessions, and his way of living. #Quote by Umar
Watchmen quotes by Patrick Wilson
#33. You know, I gotta be honest. I have not done a lot of CGI work. I just haven't. I mean, there were hundreds of effects in Watchmen, and I probably dealt with almost none of them, because all my stuff was very practical. #Quote by Patrick Wilson
Watchmen quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#34. This morning, when she got on the bus, it kind of felt like he was waiting for her. He was holding a comic called Watchmen, and it looked so ugly that Eleanor decided not to bother eavesdropping. Or eavesreading. Whatever. (She liked it best when he read the X-Men, even though she didn't get everything that was going on there; the X-Men were worse than General Hospital. It took Eleanor a couple weeks to figure out that Scott Summers and Cyclops were the same guy, and she still wasn't sure what was up with Phoenix.) #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Watchmen quotes by Zack Snyder
#35. I believe that pop culture is just, like, so ready for 'Watchmen.' We tried so hard to ride that wave between satire and reality, and all the things that make you still care about the character, but you don't miss the commentary about them. #Quote by Zack Snyder
Watchmen quotes by N. T. Wright
#36. We have, alas, belittled the cross, imagining it merely as a mechanism for getting us off the hook of our own petty naughtiness or as an example of some general benevolent truth. It is much, much more. It is the moment when the story of Israel reaches its climax; the moment when, at last, the watchmen on Jerusalem's walls see their God coming in his kingdom; the moment when the people of God are renewed so as to be, at last, the royal priesthood who will take over the world not with the love of power but with the power of love; the #Quote by N. T. Wright
Watchmen quotes by Dave Gibbons
#37. I generally like very visually striking films. I love a lot of Stanley Kubrick's films. I would have to say 'Dr. Strangelove', which of course has got resonance in 'Watchmen'. It's a favorite movie of mine. #Quote by Dave Gibbons
Watchmen quotes by Joseph Alleine
#38. I will watch over My flock by night (Isaiah 27:3). Behold, I have appointed My ministers as your watchmen, as overseers who watch for your souls (Hebrews 13:17; Acts 20:28) #Quote by Joseph Alleine
Watchmen quotes by Zack Snyder
#39. The cool thing about Watchmen is it has this really complicated question that it asks, which is: who polices the police or who governs the government? Who does God pray to? Those are pretty deep questions but also pretty fun questions. Kind of exciting. It tries to subvert the superhero genre by giving you these big questions, moral questions. Why do you think you're on a fun ride? Suddenly you're like how am I supposed to feel about that? #Quote by Zack Snyder
Watchmen quotes by Vaughn J. Featherstone
#40. We are the nation's watchmen, no other people collectively love the Constitution and honor it and hold it as a divinely inspired document as do the Latter-day Saints. #Quote by Vaughn J. Featherstone
Watchmen quotes by Anonymous
#41. 5 I j wait for the LORD, k my soul waits, and l in his word I hope; 6 my soul m waits for the Lord more than n watchmen for o the morning, more than watchmen for the morning. #Quote by Anonymous
Watchmen quotes by Dave Gibbons
#42. Whether tales are told by the light of a campfire or by the glow of a screen, the prime decision for the teller has always been what to reveal and what to withhold. Whether in alone or with images, the narrator should be clear about what is to be shown and what is to be hidden. #Quote by Dave Gibbons
Watchmen quotes by Jim Lee
#43. One of DC's strengths is our archive of storylines ranging from 'Watchmen' to 'Arkham Asylum' to 'Sandman.' #Quote by Jim Lee
Watchmen quotes by Jeff Lemire
#44. There are so many books I love for different reasons. For superhero stuff, I always go back to Alan Moore's 'Watchmen' or his 'Swamp Thing' run. Those are my two favorites, and there are indie books that I really love, like Eddie Campbell's 'Alec' books and 'From Hell.' #Quote by Jeff Lemire
Watchmen quotes by Junot Diaz
#45. And yet there are other days, when I'm downtrodden or morose, when I find myself at my desk late at night, unable to sleep, flipping through (of all things) Oscar's dog-eared copy of Watchmen. One of the few things that he took with him on the Final Voyage that we recovered. The original trade. I flip through the book, one of his top three, without question, to the last horrifying chapter: "A Stronger Loving World." To the only panel he's circled. Oscar - who never defaced a book in his life - circled one panel three times in the same emphatic pen he used to write his last letters home. The panel where Adrian Veidt and Dr. Manhattan are having their last convo. After the mutant brain has destroyed New York City; after Dr. Manhattan has murdered Rorschach; after Veidt's plan has succeded in "saving the world." Veidt says: "I did the right thing, didn't I? It all worked out in the end." And Manhattan, before fading from our Universe, replies: "In #Quote by Junot Diaz
Watchmen quotes by Rudyard Kipling
#46. A man's mind is wont to tell him more than seven watchmen sitting in a tower. #Quote by Rudyard Kipling
Watchmen quotes by Dave Gibbons
#47. The original series of Watchmen is the complete story that Alan Moore and I wanted to tell. However, I appreciate DC's reasons for this initiative and the wish of the artists and writers involved to pay tribute to our work. May these new additions have the success they desire. #Quote by Dave Gibbons
Watchmen quotes by Robert Sarah
#48. We need priests who are men of the interior life, "God's watchmen" and pastors passionately committed to the evangelization of the world, and not social workers or politicians. #Quote by Robert Sarah
Watchmen quotes by Alan Moore
#49. Rorschach: You know we can't let you do that

Adrian Veidt: Do? Do what Rorschach?
I'm not a comic book villain. Do you seriously think I would explain my master stroke to you if there were even the slightest possibility you could affect the outcome? I triggered it 35 minutes ago. #Quote by Alan Moore
Watchmen quotes by Alan Moore
#50. Benny Anger: What's up, doc?
Doc Manhattan: "Up" is a relative concept; it has no intrinsic value. #Quote by Alan Moore
Watchmen quotes by Alan Moore
#51. Nite Owl II: But the country's disintegrating. What's happened to America? What's happened to the American dream?
The Comedian: It came true. You're lookin' at it. #Quote by Alan Moore
Watchmen quotes by Susanna Clarke
#52. I had always been fascinated by comics, but it had taken me several weeks to make up my mind to buy 'Watchmen'; for someone on a publisher's assistant's salary, it was some quite unheard-of sum of money. #Quote by Susanna Clarke
Watchmen quotes by Gerard Way
#53. 'Watchmen' is not only the greatest comic ever written, it's a really important work of fiction. #Quote by Gerard Way
Watchmen quotes by Libba Bray
#54. You know that moment in 'The Matrix' when Neo takes the red pill and is plunged into the real world? That's what it felt like when I first read 'Watchmen' - like someone was taking a can opener to my head to make room for Moore's audacious brilliance. #Quote by Libba Bray
Watchmen quotes by Dave Gibbons
#55. People unacquainted with graphic novels, including journalists, tend to think of 'Watchmen' as a book by Alan Moore that happens to have some illustrations. And that does a disservice to the entire form. #Quote by Dave Gibbons
Watchmen quotes by Alan Moore
#56. Who watches the watchmen? #Quote by Alan Moore
Watchmen quotes by Zack Snyder
#57. In the sense that Watchmen references movies, comic books, pop culture in general. It knows it's a movie. I really do like movies that ride that fine line, the razor's edge between parody and supporting the fake movie part of the movie. #Quote by Zack Snyder
Watchmen quotes by Alan Moore
#58. Who makes the world? Perhaps the world is not made. Perhaps nothing is made. Perhaps it simply is, has been, will always be there ... a clock without a craftsman. #Quote by Alan Moore
Watchmen quotes by Alan Moore
#59. Crazed with helplessness, I cursed God and wept, wondering if he wept also. #Quote by Alan Moore
Watchmen quotes by Robert E.Lee
#60. If we do not do this our churches will lighthouses without light, wells without water, dumb witnesses, sleeping watchmen, silent trumpets, messengers without tidings, a comfort for infidels, jubilant joys to the devil, and an offense to God. #Quote by Robert E.Lee
Watchmen quotes by Tom Waits
#61. It's a battered old suitcase to a hotel someplace, and a wound that will never heal. No prima donna, the perfume is on an old shirt that is stained with blood and whiskey. Goodnight to the street sweepers, the night watchmen flame keepers and goodnight, Matilda, too. #Quote by Tom Waits
Watchmen quotes by Dave Gibbons
#62. I think with something like 'Watchmen' you can genuinely call that a graphic novel because it has the weight and the intent of a proper novel and it also is the complete story. #Quote by Dave Gibbons
Watchmen quotes by James W. Sire
#63. When people were conscious of a God whose character was moral law, when their consciences were informed by a sense of rightness, their watchmen would shout halt when they trespassed the law. Now their watchmen are silent. They serve no king and protect no kingdom. #Quote by James W. Sire
