Followers of the Ori, a dominant race in Stargate SG-1 quote from the fictional Book of Origin. These quotes bear resemblance to the Holy texts of many religions. Several lines from the Book of Origin, or otherwise repeated mantras, are heard on the show. These include:


  • "And those who are prideful and refuse to bow down shall be laid low and made unto dust."
  • "Hallowed are the Ori." (this mantra is repeated by all believers almost as punctuation. Considered Blasphemous if a non-believer speaks these words)
  • "Hallowed are the children of the Ori." (this mantra is said by the priors, which followed by the next mantra):
  • "Hallowed are we; hallowed are the Ori."
  • "The Ori need nothing from us."
  • "Is great knowledge, power, understanding not enough for you to revere the Ori?"
  • "Those who reject the path to enlightenment, must be destroyed."
  • "Those who stray must be guided back to the path."
  • "The power and the greatness of the Ori cannot be denied."
  • "Those who seek the path to enlightenment must not be led astray!"
  • "It is the will of the Ori, that we should spread Origin to all those blessed by their creation."
  • "What is a god, but a being that is worshipped by those beneath?"
  • "Believe in the truth of all things and you too may find the path to enlightenment."
  • "Enemies of the Ori show no mercy in their attempts to draw believers away from the path."
  • "Glorious are the Ori, who lead us to salvation, who did fight the evil that would doom us all to mortal sin. Did they defeat the old spirits and cast them out? And now, with the strength of our will, they do call upon us to prevail against the corruption of all unbelievers."
  • "Fear not the Ori, fear the darkness that would conceal the knowledge of the universe. Believe in the truth of all things, and you too may find the path to enlightenment."
  • "Guide us on the path that we may triumph over the enemy of our salvation and be with you in the end of ends on the planes of enlightenment."
  • "Those who abandon the path are evil."
  • "Blessed are those who walk in unison."
  • "And the people shall deliver the wicked into your divine judgment, where their sins shall be weighed in the balance of all that is just and true."
  • "Life and death, light and darkness, hope and despair. The rift was created, and on that day, the Ori were born. But the hatred of those who strayed from the true path festered and bloomed in the dark corners of the Avernakis to which they have been cast! And consumed by this hatred, they poisoned all they touched, bringing death, darkness and despair. And the souls of their victims knew no peace, until the Ori came and whispered to them: 'Sleep, for the end draws near!' And on that day all will rejoice, when the Ori come and lay them low."
  • "Those who follow the path of righteousness shall be raised up high."
  • "Ours is not to question, but to rejoice in their service, for they are perfection."
  • "Priors are beacons on the road to enlightenment."
  • "Pity not the blind man, for he is hindered not by the visions of this world, but rather pity yourselves, for he will see the light before you do."
  • "Those who reach enlightenment shall rejoice with the Ori forever."
  • "The book of Origin tell us that enemies of the Ori will show no mercy in their attempt to lead us astray from the true path, likewise we must attack with all the Strength which we have been given."
  • "...and those who are prideful and refuse to bow down shall be laid low and made unto dust."
  • "...then did Tilius say to the people of the low plains: seek not the wickedness amongst your neighbors, lest it find purchase in your own house." --quoted by Daniel Jackson from the Book of Origin in a (failed) attempt to convince the Ori fleet to abandon its invasion of the Milky Way at the Battle of P3Y-229. Bears a similarity to the famous Bible verse "Judge not, lest ye be judged."
  • "Truth is elusive to those who refuse to see with both eyes."
  • "Make yourself one with the path, and the journey will lead you to eternity."
  • "Great holy armies shall be gathered and trained to fight all who embrace evil. In the name of the gods, ships shall be built to carry our warriors out amongst the stars and we will spread Origin to all the unbelievers. The power of the Ori will be felt far and wide and the wicked shall be vanquished."
  • "Knowledge is power, but how you use that power defines whether if you are good, or evil." "The choice is yours. Believe in the power of the Ori, or be laid down unto the dust." -- Speech between Daniel Jackson and a Prior.
  • "The Ori do not shield this knowledge as others might, selfish in their powerful advantage. They lead you to their realm with the path that is laid out in the book of Origin. All you need do is follow their teachings."

The prophet bade him be patient, for the Ori provide for all who have faith. But Markon did not believe. So the prophet drew a line in the sand and told him, 'step across and you may do as you wish.' So Markon did and left the village and feasted on wild berries.The fruit was bitter. It did not satisfy him. He longed to return to the village, but found that the line had widened to a great chasm. He called out to the Prophet in fear, but the Prophet said, 'The line has not changed; it is you who have changed. Step across if you truly believe' So Markon prayed for forgiveness and took the first step and the hands of the Ori enveloped all those who welcomed him back."
