Quote1 I've never been religious, but I get the compulsion. Especially the way the sermons and the Bible stories make sense of this dark world. But the only truths that have ever resonated with me come from fairy tales. I'm not talking about the animated movies that feature cute animals and musical numbers...in which goodness is rewarded and evil is punished. I'm talking about the old fairy tales. My mother used to read them to me out of a leather book that smelled like mushrooms. They felt truest. In them, loved ones die and evil runs wild. Chaos Rules. Quote2

--Oliver Queen (Prime Earth)

The Ninth Circle is made up of the people who are twelve steps ahead of the guy...who's twelve steps ahead of everyone else. Quote2

--Oliver Queen (Prime Earth)

Quote1 Enough time has passed...I feel like we need to get properly reintroduced. I'm Oliver Queen...also known as the only green-themed superhero who actually matters. Quote2

--Oliver Queen (Prime Earth)

Quote1 I'm beyond grateful for the offer and for all the help you've given me on this mission. But let's be honest. I'm never going to be the best team player. So how do you feel about a compromise? I serve the Justice League as a kind of...rogue operative. A satellite agent? Quote2

Quote1 You saw what that arrow did to the Dark Robin. It was the Nth Metal, Damian. Don't you see? Those things might have won this round, but because of you... now we know how to kill them. Quote2
