"Start the Bomb gold initiative. A bomb in every orphan's pocket and a one way ticket to gold."
One of the best quotes i've found.

The front page still has all the epic quotes from days long past. When I was a new player I used to hope something one of my characters said would make it up there.
A lot of them were put into random SIC messages, do those still broadcast?
"I AM THE RAW!" screamed by a Japanese TERRA agent making a bust.
"Goddamnit. Somebody better get me a fucking translator chip for this shit." uttered by a third party observing a nadsat conversation
"This is New Light Media, my good man, if you’re intending to cause any property damage we can probably work out some kind of arrangement, I beg you to not do anything hasty.” muttered by a NLM employee to a errant pipe bomb.
And nobody should ever forget "AM ON TV!"
I'd be really happy if someone could resurrect Huo's famous quotes
This medic chica once tried to heal a mano, who had his guts hanging out after being attacked by a pack of wild dogs. The mano screamed "HEAL ME" at the top of his lungs, and the chica just stood there with her mouth open, not able to do anything for the mano. The mano shrugged and sat on the ground and said "Well, fuck me then." and died.
There is, in fact, a third faction in the war of the haves vs. the have-nots: The takers. Those who cheat, steal, and lie their way to the top, ensuring that their share is larger than anyone else's. The problem is that the takers are, along with the haves, the ones who are frequently being taken from. Eventually, we all will end up have-nots; it's just a function of when you stop taking and start being taken from.
If you've ever been around for The Font...
Not from in game, but Richard K. Morgan's Altered Carbon. I think it's a perfect cyberpunk mindset, especially for mixers.
“The personal, as everyone’s so fucking fond of saying, is political. So if some idiot politician, some power player, tries to execute policies that harm you or those you care about, take it personally. Get angry. The Machinery of Justice will not serve you here – it is slow and cold, and it is theirs, hardware and soft-. Only the little people suffer at the hands of Justice; the creatures of power slide from under it with a wink and a grin. If you want justice, you will have to claw it from them. Make it personal. Do as much damage as you can. Get your message across. That way, you stand a better chance of being taken seriously next time. Of being considered dangerous. And make no mistake about this: being taken seriously, being considered dangerous marks the difference - the only difference in their eyes - between players and little people. Players they will make deals with. Little people they liquidate. And time and again they cream your liquidation, your displacement, your torture and brutal execution with the ultimate insult that it’s just business, it’s politics, it’s the way of the world, it’s a tough life and that it’s nothing personal. Well, fuck them. Make it personal.”
You say, "Ah forget about it. You'd find a new broad anyway, ye barely know her."
**** puts his rum tumbler to his lips and sips the smooth warm liquid.
You say, "All you know is she's fucked up and precious."
**** says, "In a city that's basically the fuckin' gay capital of America, hard pushed chummer."
You laugh loudly.
**** sighs quietly.
Sindome; The Gay Capital of America.
[+][OOC-Chat] Nemer: Also try one of those fidget spinner buttplugs. Also easy to assemble. Less usefull for survival kits or camping.
[+][OOC-Chat] TheRealSmarm: I have three of those. They don't sell as well at the 15's, though. I really do enjoy shooting them. Great camping guns.
[+][OOC-Chat] SirQuacksAlot laughs.
[+][OOC-Chat] TheRealSmarm: Saves space, combines the essentials. That's great for camping and survival if ya ask me.
Not sure why, but this made me giggle so much xD
Mr A hands chocolate chip brownie to Mrs B.
You tilt your head at Mr A and Mrs B.
You blink your eyes slowly.
Mrs B giggles dumbly, taking a bite of the brownie.
Mrs B breaks off a nice chunk of her chocolate chip brownie, popping it in her mouth and chewing with a contented smile.
Mrs B pops the last bite of her chocolate chip brownie in her mouth, balling up the cotton candy napkin and tossing it in as well as she chews with a smile.
Mr A [to You]: Got that off ah dead di-
Mr A [to Mrs B]: Ya ate it all!
Mr A sighs quietly.
Mrs B crams the entire thing in her face, apparently.
Mrs B [to Mr A]: Oops.
Mr A chuckles softly.
