Famous Quote

  • Gill: I understand your jealousy. There is a huge gap between humans and a god. You cannot forgive me because you cannot deny me. Let me grant you your death as a show of mercy from your brother!
    Urien: When I look into the past, I see dishonor and hatred. When I look into the future, I am free from the corruption. How glorious it is... A world without you!

  • Ryu: What is a true warrior? Why should I be strong? What awaits beyond victory? Since the days of my youth, these thoughts have never left my mind. I had to decide... Either to stop asking myself those questions... ...or to struggle to find the answers... ! Hmm. I'm not close. I can't even tell where the leaves will fall... As long as strong opponents and fierce battles excite me... As long as I possess the strength to move even one of my fingers... ...I will keep on fighting!
