"Calhoun had always had something of a sixth sense for danger. ... He'd even been tested for it at Starfleet Academy, and researchers had found nothing in particular. Calhoun's contention was that there was nothing to find because, during the research, no danger was present."
― Star Trek: New Frontier: Martyr
"I get these chills up and down my spine, and all of the sudden, it's as clear as day. That if I stay put, I'm dead."
― Kabuto Kirisaki (Psyren)
"No one-including my own wife-can sneak up on me, or ambush me from behind!"
― Peter Parker/Spider-Man to Mary Jane (Marvel Comics)
"Amanogawa, if you keep ignorantly court danger without truly understanding the consequences involved. Even if you have a million lives, it won't be enough for you to survived all of them. You want to live and die for justice, it is your freedom! Don't you dare force your ideals upon me, I won't risked my life for this world! If you get it shut up, blabber in my ear about justice again one more time, I will send you to hell!"
― Hajime Nagumo (Arifureta Sekai Saikyou)
"Your companions got eaten? Lost a leg? So what of it, all of you are adventurers, you should be aware of all of it when you came here. Don't tell me you think it was Paradise here? This is Hell. A HELL HOLE WHERE YOUR LIVES ARE NOTHING MORE THAN TRASH! IF YOU CAN'T BEAR RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN LIFE, DON'T CALL YOURSELF ADVENTURERS!!"
― Bete Loga (DanMachi)
