Sinestro Corps - Oath


When recharging their power rings, members of the Sinestro Corps recite the following oath:

In blackest day, in brightest night,
Beware your fears made into light
Let those who try to stop what's right,
Burn like my power*... Sinestro's might!

—Sinestro, Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps Special #1 (June 2007)

  • "My power" becomes "his power" when recited by other members of the Corps.

Famous quotes containing the word oath:

    Friendship is by its very nature freer of deceit than any other relationship we can know because it is the bond least affected by striving for power, physical pleasure, or material profit, most liberated from any oath of duty or of constancy.
    Francine Du Plesssix Gray (20th century)

    It is not the oath that makes us believe the man, but the man the oath.
    Aeschylus (525–456 B.C.)

    On principle I dislike an oath which requires a man to swear he has not done wrong. It rejects the Christian principle of forgiveness on terms of repentance. I think it is enough if the man does no wrong hereafter.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
