- “They call me terrorist, radical, zealot... because I obey the ancient laws of my people, the Kree... and punish those who do not. Because I do not forgive your people for taking the life of my father, and his father, and his father before him. A thousand years of war between us will not be forgotten!”
- ―Ronan speaking his motto.
