I don't remember it exactly, but doesn't Book say something like this:

"The destination's not important. How you get there's the worthier part."

I've always liked that one.

You could always check out fortune-firefly (a list of firefly quotes, designed for the program "fortune" but human readable) at http://www.daughtersoftiresias.org/progs/firefly/. Go to fortune-firefly-1.9/ and get the file "firefly". Quotes are separated by a "%". There's something like 86k worth of quotes in there. :)

Gorramit! Stole my quote...

Instead of inspiring you could just go with confusing. Something like, "I've added cussing and hurling about things to my resume" or "I was gonna get me a ear".

Here are a few Serenity quotes that came to mind. Some might work, some might just be weird. Pick and choose.

Select to view spoiler:


"Half of writing history is hiding the truth."

"You guys always bring me the very best violence."

"This is what I do, darlin'. This is what I do."

"Let's be bad guys."

"I aim to misbehave."

"When your quarry goes to ground, leave no ground to go to."

"No power in the verse can stop me"

Since it's for graduation: "I'm thinking you weren't burdened with an overabudance of schooling."

and because I have a sick and twisted since of humor: "They'll rape us to death, eat our flesh, and sew our skin into their clothing and if we're very very lucky they'll do it in that order."

I gotta go with Hell's Kitten or InevitableBetrayal.


Here's a few from each of them that i would think fun in a yearbook:

Who's flying this thing? Oh right, that would be me. --Wash

I'm thinking you weren't burdened with an overabundance of schoolin', so why don't we just ignore each other 'til we go away. --Mal

Let's be bad guys. --Jayne

Little soul, big world. Eat, sleep, and eat. --River

No power in the 'verse can stop me. --Kaylee/River

If I'm gonna wear a dress, I want something with some slink. -- Zoe

'Cause how you get there is the worthier part. -- Book

It wasn't entirely a disaster. -- Inara

This must be what it feels like to go crazy. --Simon

If I mess up, it's not like you can yell at me. -- Kaylee

Yes, I've read a poem. Try not to faint. -- Mal

Lets see, a quick search through the quotes list, a couple things stand out:

Obvious:
"You can't take the sky from me."

Subtle:
"Ours is a peaceful race, and we must live in harmony..."

"We all know I'm the funny one."

"We're becoming fast friends."

"Whatever happens, remember I love you."

"Well, that's... congratulations."

"Well, isn't that... special?"

"Don't be afraid. That's what it says, don't be afraid."

"Wacky fun."

"Am I dreaming? / We all are"

"Pinch me, I must be dreaming!"

"It's time to wake up"

"When a man engages in clandestine dealings, he has this preference for things going smoothly."

"We can go to 25."

"You seem like clean and virtuous boys."

"Quiet, safe, place where folks take care of each other."

"Everything I have is right here."

"I've been sane a while now and change is good."

"It's not as good as last year."

"Such a comfort, having friends visit at a time like this."

"I never back down from a fight"

"Nice to see someone from the old homestead."

"Shiny."

"You'll have to rely on your winning personality"

"It was very exciting."

"It breaks the heart."

"Bad in Latin."

"There's an energy about a person that's difficult to hide."

"We're still flyin'."

"Now everyone can enjoy the comfort and enlightenment of true civilization."

"This is gonna get pretty interesting."

"I will get very choked up. Seriously, there might even be tears."

"Missing you something fierce."

"I aim to misbehave."

"I am a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar."

"Storm's getting worse / We'll pass through it soon enough."

Weird:

"They took Christmas away. Came downstairs for the shiny presents...they took the tree, and the
stockings...nothing left but coal."

"I tore these out of your symbol, and they turned into paper."

"I'm talking about geese."

"He looks better in red."

"We're starting a book club."

"Don't let the space bugs bite!"

"Hamsters is nice."

"He's putting the hair away now"

"Day is a vestigal mode of time measurement based on solar cycles."

"I would like a pony and a plastic rocket."

Some great ones already posted in this thread (love "If you can't do something smart, do something right"). Here's some more ideas:

Wheel never stops turning.

None of it means a damn thing.

I do the job. And then I get paid.

Go run your little world.

Don't tell 'em what I did.

Copper for a kiss.

That's some nonsensical crap.

This is just a moment in time.

Every problem is an opportunity in disguise.

Don't make no sense.

Someone tries to kill you, you try and kill 'em right back. (I'm sure that would go over well with the yearbook editors).

When you can't run anymore, you crawl, and when you can't do that, you find someone to carry you.

Talkin' uses up air. Ain't no need for it.

Mercy is the mark of a great man. Guess I'm just a good man. Well, I'm all right.

Yeah. That went well.

Well... here I am.

Everybody dies alone.

This is not my best day ever.

This is a day I'll feel good to be me.

"Hamsters is nice."

Whew! For a second there I thought no one was going to mention that one. I was almost appauled. Yes, this one definitely gets my vote. It was the first thing that came to mind. I was a senior in high school last year (now I'm a freshman at the university, ah!) and if they would have let us have quotes, that's what I woulda put. It's subtle enough where if you haven't seen the show, they wouldn't get it, but still understand and like the saying on it's own. However, anyone who saw the episode would recognise it. It's about life in general, and that's what yearbooks are all about, looking at the past, preparing for the future.

This one gets my vote!

I can't remember what my quote was in my yearbook. But I remember that the stupid yearbook editors messed it up and added punctuation and exclamation points where there wasn't supposed to be. They were always trying to make everything all nice and perky. No wonder I didn't go to my 10 year HS reunion. (It was just last weekend, too.)

Corrections (just in case you decide to go with one):

This must be what going mad feels like.

When a man engages in clandestine dealings, he has his preference for things being smooth.

Bad...in the Latin.

Dear Buddha, I want a pony, and a plastic rocket, and-- *interrupted*

I’m going to the special hell.

Also—I can kill you with my brain.

You can use

" I am a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar."

Also "If wishes were horse, we'd all be eating steak." or "Pain is scary."

"Some people juggle geese."

or if you wanna go to the morbid and creepifying.

"Bible's broken. Contradictions, false logics. Doesn't make sense. "

"The human body can be drained of blood in 8.6 seconds, given adequate vacuuming systems."
or
"Day" is a vestigial mode of time measurement based on solar cycles. It's not applicable... I didn't get you anything. "

but if you don't like those. I'd vote for

"If I wanted schooling, I'd gone to school." and
"When you run, you crawl and when you can't do that. You find someone to carry you."

Come on Browncoats, these are all good quotes but not for a yearbook that will mean something and can apply to one's future. Let's Be Bad Guys, Too much hair?? I mean, really.

I think the one from Serenity, If you can't do something smart, do something right will stand the test of time well.
