Quotes from Watchmen

by - March 18, 2009

Since I don’t want to be part of the unstoppable noise going around regarding Watchmen, am not really gonna give a review for it. But why the heck am I writing right now?

I’ll just share some quotes that I like from the comics [coz I can’t help it!].

Initially, I had no plans to plunge into this sudden emergence of the world of Watchmen [due to the movie] but I had no choice but to dive into it for the sake of my philosophy class. I have an incomplete recitation so I have to write a paper about it to fulfill my requirements.

But am glad it did happen.

Watchmen is a very good piece for philosophy class.

Okay! So much for this stuff, I said no reviews! Here are the quotes!

In this world, you shouldn't rely on help from anybody. In the end, a man stands alone.

–Dr. Manhattan | Chapter 4: Watchmaker

What I said was 'God exists and he's American'. If that statement starts to chill you after a couple of moments' consideration, then don't be alarmed. A feeling of intense and crushing religious terror at the concept indicates only that you are still sane.
–Dr. Milton Glass | Chapter 4: Watchmaker

I do not believe that we have made a man to end wars.
I believe that we have made a man to end worlds.

Once a man has seen, he can never turn his back on it. Never pretend it doesn't exist. No matter who orders him to look the other way.
–Rorschach | Chapter 6: The Abyss Gazes Also

This rudderless world is not shaped by vague metaphysical forces. It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It's us. Only us.
