Death quotes

Recommended Posts

Hello, i'm new.

Flashpoint = excellent (i played up until the bit where you're in the forest then the boats leave and you have to get to a rendezvous point, but i couldn't do it)... but the thing which interests me currently is the quotes which appear when you die.

Can anybody give me a list of these quotes? Or, alternately, simply reply to this topic with any of the quotes, if you remember it?

Thanks!

I think they are in StringTable.csv, which is a text file that can be opened using Notepad, or better yet, Excel.

Edit: Fixed typo

Didn't know that there were that many. I've always thought that they were too few. Maybe I just don't remember which ones I have heard.

Though I can't remember this: "Much good work is lost for the lack of a little more."

However this have inspired me to retry missions several times: "When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal." smile_o.gif

Thanks for the list!
