Give a man a fish and he feeds himself for a day, teach a man to fish and he feeds his family for a life time. Shoot the same man in the head, take his car, his comlink, as well as anything that isn't nailed down, go back to his house taking everything you can, sell it all off to a fixer under the false name of Androv Nikoli and you just might be able to afford that new piece of ware.


A stitch in Time saves the runner with a lame handle.


A watched pot never boils, unless a mage is watching it...... (stupid LOS.)


If someone hasn't been stuffed in a box and interrogated, you haven't been doing your job.

"when all else fails use explosives"

Not technically SR related, but your first one reminds me of Minsc. "Give a man a fish and he eats for a day, but give a man a sword and he can chow down on the meaty marrow of evil!"

When using explosives, there is one formula

P=Plenty

Is the Man with with the pointy hat your friend?
No? Kill him first.

Pillage, then burn.
Close air support covereth a multitude of sins.
If violence wasn’t your last resort, you failed to resort to enough of it.
Mockery and derision have their place. Usually, it's in a grave.
Never turn your back on an enemy.
Everything is air-droppable at least once. A soft answer turneth away wrath. Once wrath is looking the other way, shoot it in the head.
Do unto others.
Your name is in the mouth of others: be sure it has teeth.
Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Take his fish away and tell him he's lucky just to be alive, and he'll figure out how to catch another one for you to take tomorrow.
Don't be afraid to be the first to resort to violence.
The enemy of my enemy is my enemy's enemy. No more. No less.
A little trust goes a long way. The less you use, the further you'll go.
Only cheaters prosper.
If you’re leaving scorch-marks, you need a bigger gun.
That which does not kill you has made a tactical error.
When the going gets tough, the tough call for close air support.
Just because it's easy for you doesn't mean it can't be hard on your clients


And most importantly:

There is no 'overkill.' There is only 'open fire' and 'time to reload.

The two I try and go by are

“Proper Planning and Perpetration Prevent Piss Poor Performance.?

“There is not a problem in the world that cannot be solved with the proper application of explosives?

Both where uttered by fictional Englishmen

I've learned to hate this statement
"I'm going to contact my mentor spirit, Death!"

"When the new guy gets uppity, take his liver and feed it to Vinny."

"Never make a deal with a dragon...or a nosferatu...or a Halloweener...you know that mid-level corp exec is looking pretty fishy..."

"Dude no way, two girls one datajack!"

That's just a few that will get the group rolling about and laughing. They're not really philosophic blurbs...but they'll crack a group of 8 nerds up if dropped appropriately.

No. You can never use enough explosives, or at least if you talk to the demo expert in your party. A fully automatic grenade launcher w/ an air burst link and explosive grenades solves most problems. That or just start blowing things up pell mell.

***

When explosives fail you just weren't using enough explosives.


If you can, always bring a small tactical nuke to a knife fight.


Never be within fifteen meters of the demo expert. They tend to sometimes 'go off.'


You can never have enough drones with heavy weapons


Never be the one to strike second


Don't bring loaded assault cannons into your local stuffer shack.


The Johnson is never your friend.

A Pred in the hand is worth two Streetline Specials. More if you load it.

Give a man a Pred and he'll take the other guys fish from his cold dead hand!
or alternately
Give a man a Pred and he'll have the other guys fish until he runs out of ammo, so teach him to threaten instead.

If you're going to double-cross someone, start by killing them. This saves much trouble later.

The best way to win a one-on-one fight is to be the third guy.

Never pick a fight you're not sure you can win.

The enemy of my enemy is an excellent scapegoat.

When considering allies, two things are paramount: Can they shoot?, and Will they aim at the enemy?

Cool... But....... There is no 'overkill.' There is only a big waste of ammo.

My favorite two:

Nothing to fear if you've got the gear.

And

Security is foolproof up until the point the runners show up on the scene.

"Give a man a fire and he will stay warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he will be warm for the rest of his life."

"There is only one answer to that question." (This is used to respond to questions like "What is the Rating of your medkit?" or "What kind of ammo are you using?")

Personal favorite is actually from another game (Battlelords of the 23rd Century)...

If it moves, kill it... If it doesn't move, pick it up and kill it!
