||I welcome you to my place of solitude, weary traveller, and I bid you take shelter within this temporary sanctuary from the oncoming storm that rages outside. May the blessings of the Truth Givers be upon you and your kin if you be Sangheili or human, and may their curses follow the treacherous Jiralhanae and San'Shyuum for straying from the path the Gods set before us, and for their betrayal. The traitors have sown the seeds of their own destruction. And for them, it shall be a bitter harvest.
- "It has been said that in the beginning of all things, there was life and light. The light of the Gods. The light of the Forerunners. And all was good. Yet for all, there must be a counter and an opposite: for warmth, there must be cold; For love, there must be hate; For light, there must be darkness; for good, there must be evil. And the darkness that was the Abomination engulfed the light, and threatened to extinguish all. The Forerunners, in their wisdom, ascended out of the reach of the darkness, and cast the demons down for the evil they are, embarking upon the Great Journey, and leaving us behind to follow in their footsteps."
- — Ascendancy Codex, Minister of Acquisition, formal recitation.
- "ACQUAINTED WITH THE NIGHT
I have been one acquainted with the night.
I have walked out in rain - and back in rain.
I have outwalked the furthest city light.
I have looked down the saddest city lane.
I have passed by the watchman on his beat
And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.
I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet
When far away an interrupted cry
Came over houses from another street,
But not to call me back or say good-bye;
And further still at an unearthly height,
One luminary clock against the sky
Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.
I have been one acquainted with the night. "
