Playing the greatest warrior in the seven kingdoms, that's absolutely no pressure. It didn't help, during the casting, the director kept saying, 'Remember, you're the most legendary swordsman ever.' I said, 'Great. I'll try and convey that in my four lines of dialogue.' -Luke Roberts

In whatever guise – our own daily nightmares of war, intolerance, inhumanity or the struggles of an Assistant Pig-Keeper against the Lord of Death – the problems are agonizingly familiar.

What God wants is for us to live by His rules, resulting in the receiving of His blessing and power. When we as Christians, celebrating our differences, join together as the house of God representing the kingdom of God for the glory of God, we get the response of God to our presence in history. -Tony Evans

The Church and only the Church has been given the keys to the kingdom, so we have unique access to God that nobody else has. -Tony Evans

To me, there are certain things you lay claim to proudly and others you hope the people look over them, and for me, the NWA title throwdown is something that I wear like a badge of honor and what we did and what it achieved for ECW at the time, and ultimately we failed, but damn, we came close to grabbing those keys to the kingdom. -Shane Douglas

I was 13 years old when I first heard of the Sultan of Brunei. The absolute ruler of a tiny, oil-rich kingdom in Southeast Asia, Hassanal Bolkiah was the subject of a much-discussed TV documentary by the British filmmaker Alan Whicker in 1992. As a young teenager, sitting in front of the television, I was in awe of this Muslim king. -Mehdi Hasan
