1. “Everyone wants to believe that there’s something else – something great – waiting for them on the other side. Paradise. Valhalla. Heaven. Their next – hopefully, less horrible – life.” – Meg Cabot

2. “Welcome to warrior paradise, where you can listen to Frank Sinatra in Norwegian FOREVER!” – Rick Riordan

3. “I do not regard the rise of women as a bad sign. Rather do I fancy that her traditional subordination was itself an artificial and undesirable condition based on Oriental influences. Our virile Teutonic ancestors did not think their wives unworthy to follow them into battle, or scorn to dream of winged Valkyries bearing them to Valhalla.” – H. P. Lovecraft

4. “As for the primitive, I hark back to it because we are still very primitive. How many thousands of years of culture, think you, have rubbed and polished at our raw edges? One probably; at the best, no more than two. And that takes us back to screaming savagery, when, gross of body and deed, we drank blood from the skulls of our enemies, and hailed as highest paradise the orgies and carnage of Valhalla.” – Jack London

5. “Who knows, Ragnar, what the gods have in store for us. But this, I can never imagine. If you have gone to Heaven, then we will never meet again.

And there, there we shall meet again, and fight and drink and… love one another.” – Legartha

7. “Nearby is Valhalla, vast, and gold-bright. And every day, Odin chooses slain men to join him. They arm themselves and fight in the courtyard. They kill one another, but every night they rise again and ride back to the hall, and feast. The roof is made out of shields. The rafters are spears. Coats of mail litter the benches. A wolf stands at the Western door and an eagle hovers above it. It has five hundred and forty doors, and when Ragnarok comes, eight hundred warriors will march out of each door, shoulder to shoulder.” – Floki

9. “It gladdens me to know that Baldr’s father [Odin] makes ready the benches for a banquet. Soon we shall be drinking ale from the curved horns. The champion who comes into Odin’s dwelling [Valhalla] does not lament his death. I shall not enter his hall with words of fear upon my lips. The Æsir will welcome me. Death comes without lamenting… Eager am I to depart. The Dísir summon me home, those whom Odin sends for me [Valkyries] from the halls of the Lord of Hosts. Gladly shall I drink ale in the high-seat with the Æsir. The days of my life are ended. I laugh as I die.” – Ragnar Lodbrok

10. “Think of glory. Think of your reputation. Think how great it’ll look on your next resume. ‘On my cenotaph, you mean. Nobody will be able to collect enough of my scattered atoms to bury.

Banners, dancing girls, and enough beer to float your coffin to Valhalla.’ – Miles coaxing Ky Tung to agree to an almost suicidal mission.” – Lois McMaster Bujold

14. “We humans are naturally disposed to worship gods and heroes, to build our pantheons and Valhalla. I would rather see that impulse directed into the adoration of daft singers, thicko footballers, and air-headed screen actors than into the veneration of dogmatic zealots, fanatical preachers, militant politicians, and rabid cultural commentators.” – Stephen Fry

15. “Though I suppose you would have like that better since you Northmen are so eager to die.Not just die, Leif corrected, Die in battle.” – Jessica Leake

16. “Africa is mystic; it is wild; it is a sweltering inferno; it is a photographer’s paradise, a hunter’s Valhalla, an escapist’s Utopia. It is what you will, and it withstands all interpretations. It is the last vestige of a dead world or the cradle of a shiny new one. To a lot of people, as to myself, it is just ‘home’. It is all these things but one thing – it is never dull.” – Beryl Markham
