This is where the adventure is. This is where heroes are made. Right here ... in the wilderness. ibid. Bashir
The prophets await you. ibid. old man to Sisko
We need a community leader and it’s going to be – you Quark. ibid. Sisko
That may be the most important thing to understand about humans. It is the unknown that defines our existence. We are constantly searching, not just for answers to our questions, but for new questions. We are explorers. We explore our lives day by day, and we explore the galaxy trying to expand the boundaries of our knowledge. And that is why I am here: not to conquer you with weapons or ideas, but to coexist and learn. ibid. Sisko
Dax, we might have just discovered the first stable wormhole known to exist. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine s1e2: Emissary II Sisko
I am just a Bajoran who has been fighting a hopeless cause against the Cardassians all her life. So if you want a war, I’ll give you one! ibid. Kira
You don’t say! Doctor, you’re not intimating that I’m some sort of spy, are you? Star Trek: Deep Space Nine s1e3: Past Prologue, Garak to Doctor
In war both sides commit atrocities. ibid. Sisko
I’ll never understand the humanoid need to ... couple ... I choose not to. Too many compromises. You want to watch the Karo-Net tournament, she wants to listen to music, so you compromise: you listen to music. You like Earth jazz, she prefers Klingon opera, so you compromise: you listen to Klingon opera. So here you were ready to have a nice night watching the Karo-net match and you wind up spending an agonizing evening listening to Klingon opera. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine s1e4: A Man Alone, Odo to Quark
Laws change depending on who’s making them, but justice is justice. ibid. Odo
Do not condemn this man [Odo] because he is different than you are. ibid. Sisko

Who said anything about volunteering? We can haggle over price later. ibid. Quark
I am Tosk. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine s1e6: Captive Pursuit, first station visitor from Gamma quadrant
The most disappointing hunt in memory. ibid. invading lizard-bloke
He has been bred for the hunt. His entire reason to exist is the hunt, to make it as exciting, as interesting, as he can. ibid.
I am Tosk. The hunted. I live to outwit the hunters for another day. To survive until I die with honour. ibid.
I’ll never understand this obsession with accumulating material wealth. You spend your entire life plotting and scheming to acquire more and more possessions until your living areas are bursting with useless junk. Then you die, your relatives sell everything and start the cycle all over again. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine s1e7: Q-Less, Q
The galaxy can be a dangerous place when you’re on your own. ibid. Q
An abysmal place – Earth ... Now it’s just mind-numbingly dull. ibid. Q
He taught me to appreciate life in ways I’d never thought about before. He taught me about art, and science and diplomacy. Whatever sense of honour I have today, he nurtured. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine s1e8: Dax , Sisko of Dax

Let’s see: two Bajoran synth ales, a glass of Damsien Wine and a Trixian Bubble Juice for the little lady. [receives drink in face] I’m still charging her for that drink. ibid. Quark
The Ninth Rule of Acquisition clearly states that Opportunity plus Instinct equals Profit. ibid. Nog
That’s a lot of Yamac sauce. It’d be a shame to let it go to waste. Jake, I’m getting that tingling in the lobes. And when a lobe tingles it means only one thing: opportunity. I’m talking about gold-pressed latinum. Maybe four or five bars. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine s1e15: Progress, Nog
We beat them because we ... hung out like fanatics. ibid. Kira to Bajoran
I have no time for fantasies. Waste of time. Too many people dream of places they’ll never go, wishes they’ll never have, instead of paying attention to their real lives. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine s1e16: If Wishes Were Horses, Odo to Quark
It’s snowing on the promenade. ibid. Odo to Sisko
Kira: Yellow Alert against our own imaginations?
Sisko: You have a better idea? ibid.
Ladies and gentlemen, and all androgynous creatures, please stop using your imaginations! ibid. Odo in bar

I’ve always wanted to see an upper pylon. ibid.
Odo: I hate parties.
Her: Perhaps you’ve been going to the wrong ones. ibid. happy couple in lift
The Klingons – they’re hard on the holosuites, they wreck the furniture, I’m still fixing the walls in holosuite six. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine s1e18: Dramatis Personae, Quark to Odo
They said they’d be coming back through the wormhole with something that would make the enemies of the Klingon Empire tremble. ibid.
Mark my words, there’s going to be trouble. ibid. Sisko to Odo
What if you had to choose sides? Just remember who your friends are. ibid. Kira to Odo
Commander, I think something might be wrong with some of us. ibid. Odo to Sisko
My name will blaze across the stars long after your petty treacheries have been forgotten. ibid. Sisko to Kira
Gallitep ... imagine living through that hellhole ... the pain ... the sorrow ... Do you think they like to gamble? Star Trek: Deep Space Nine s1e19: Duet, Quark
He’s a war criminal. ibid. Kira
I helped liberate that camp. I saw the bodies. ibid. Kira
I admit everything. Why not? ibid. Cardassian prisoner
I hate him, Odo. ibid. Kira
