Is send my distant prayers
Over the wind of time,
Setting sail on dreams..."

There are two sides to every coin. Love and hate. Life and death. They are all the same.
 -- Lynx, 'Chrono Cross'

"There's nothing in the world as ruthless or impartial as death. All living matter ages over time and eventually dies...
No matter how mighty or tiny its life force...
So being alive means you're creeping closer to death with every second...
But there's none of that here. No one and nothing ages. Nothing wastes away. This quiet, boundless, and beautiful world...
An ideal world, straight out of a fairy tale, isn't it? A place and time that belongs to no one...
Res nullius...
It's because this is a future that was eliminated!!!
History is composed of choices and divergences. Each choice you make creates a new world and brings forth a new future. But at the same time, you're eliminating a different future with the choices you didn't make. A future denied of all existence because of a change in the past... A future that was destroyed before it was even born rests here... condensed into the Dead Sea."
-- Miguel, 'Chrono Cross'

There are only the killers and the killed...
The sinners who are judged, and the victims that do the judging. What meaning is there to such a world?"
 -- Time Devourer, 'Chrono Cross'

 -- Marle, 'Chrono Trigger'

"The devils inside the servant's skulls were trying to kill me! They plotted behind doors locked and barred and planned the downfall of the human race! I took care of the ones around me... Stopped their plans. Their are others, I'm sure... Out there... Manipulating us... Secreting madness inside our very heads, while our souls are pushed into the corners of our skulls... watching as our hands do tasks that we have no control over! Oh horrible... horrible... things... WE MUST PURGE THEM FROM OUR MIDST!! Kill them all!! CUT THEM, BURN THEM!!! It's the only way... I know... I've done it... It... works..."
 -- Maximillian Roivas' report on the Xel'latoth Bonethief, 'Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem'

So long as men fight over us, we light the flames of anger, and forget the power to heal. If that truly is our destiny, should we just destroy everything? What do you say Lady Blackpearl!? Blackpearl...I have not your strength...the strength to destroy it all. I can only do one thing... Open a small exit..."
 -- Elazul, 'Legend of Mana'

 -- Douglas Adams, 'Mostly Harmless'

-- Douglas Adams, 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'

"Infinite:  Bigger than the biggest thing ever and then some. Much bigger than that in fact, really amazingly immense, a totally stunning size, real 'wow, that's big,' time.  Infinity is just so big that, by comparison, bigness itself looks really titchy. Gigantic multiplied by colossal multiplied by staggeringly huge is the sort of concept we're trying to get across here."
  -- Douglas Adams, 'The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy'

"Intelligence is the ability to reconcile totally contradictory situations without going completely bonkers -- for example, having a stomach ache and not having a stomach ache at the same time, holding a hole without the doughnut, having good luck and bad luck simultaneously, or seeing a real estate agent waive his fee."

"God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of his own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any other players (i.e. everyone), to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a dealer who won't tell you the rules and who smiles all the time."

"This gas which constitutes the raw material of life, the permanent store upon which all that grows draws, and the ultimate destiny of all flesh, is not one of the principal components of air but rather a ridiculous remnant, an 'impurity' thirty times less abundant than argon, which no one even notices... From this ever renewed impurity of the air we come, we animals and we plants, and we the human species, with our four billion discordant opinions, our millenniums of history, our wars and shames, nobility and pride."
 -- Primo Levi, 'The Periodic Table' (2)

"There is always a reason. Whenever anything has been mucked up, whenever anything outrageous happens, there is a reason for it. You still have a mucked-up, outrageous situation on your hands, however, and explaining it does not alleviate it one bit. If someone does something really rotten, there is a reason for it. Learn it, if you care, and you learn why he is a son of a bitch. The fact is the thing remains, though."
 -- Roger Zelazny, 'The Hand of Oberon'
