Jean (or, rather, a somewhat-cynical Sparky)

“I’ll be more enthusiastic about encouraging thinking outside the box when there’s evidence of any thinking going on inside it.”
– Terry Pratchett


Malphas

“For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.”
– Matthew 10:35-36 (KJV)

Jean is a micromanager -- albeit a supernaturally intelligent one with access to the Uber Elohite Resonance (check digit 6, on command, woo!) -- so I'd say that really, that quote fits quite well.

Kobal

Crews: "The Universe makes fun of us all"
Rhys: "Why do you think it does that?"
Crews (shrugs): "...maybe it's insecure."
- Life

Actually, it's almost too benign for Kobal, I have this nagging feeling that this should fit to some heavenly superior, but I can't put my finger on it.

Baal

"The facts of life are that a child who has seen war cannot be compared with a child who doesn't know what war is except from television."
– Sophia Loren

(Baal and Nybbas are canonically Hostile to each other...)

Saminga (backwards) or the Archangel of Death

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”
– Steve Jobs, from his 2005 commencement address at Stanford

I know we already have a supplement on the Prince of the Media, but I couldn't resist pitching this one for Nybbas anyway:

"When you're young, you look at television and think, There's a conspiracy. The networks have conspired to dumb us down. But when you get a little older, you realize that's not true. The networks are in business to give people exactly what they want. That's a far more depressing thought. "
--Steve Jobs

Novalis
"And in the end,
The love you take,
Is equal to the love you make."
--Lennon/McCartney

(The fairness of this could also make it a candidate for Marc, of course.)

Marc

He who is not satisfied with little will not be satisfied with much.
– Arabic proverb


Novalis

« Amur n'est pruz se n'est egals. »
– Marie de France, Equitan
“Love is not honourable, unless it is based on equality.”

« D'euls deus fu il tut autresi
Cume del chevrefoil esteit
Ki a la codre se perneit:
Quant il s'i est laciez e pris
Ensemble poënt bien durer;
Mes ki puis les volt deservrer,
Li codres muert hastivement
E li chevrefoil ensement.
"Bele amie, si est de nus:
Ne vus sanz mei, ne mei sanz vus!" »
– Marie de France, Chevrefoil
“The two of them resembled the honeysuckle which clings to the hazel branch: when it has wound itself round and attached itself to the hazel, the two can survive together: but if anyone should then attempt to separate them, the hazel quickly dies, as does the honeysuckle. ‘Sweet love, so it is with us: without me you cannot survive, nor I without you.’”
