The throne itself does not half a will of its own. Depending upon who sits in it, it can be the seat of justice or it can be the seat of inhuman cruelty. As long as it is a man and not a god, doing the governing, he can never be perfect. But should he neglect to make efforts to reach for perfection, a king will surely tumble down the slippery slope towards evil with no one around to stop him.

Does this world feel like hell to you? Of course it does, because it is. So take it all in, don't even blink, Miroku. There's no place like hell! We made it so. With our lust, and greed. It always comes down to this. Life is desire. It's what we do. When desire meets desire, the stronger survives. The predator will eat the prey. It's dirty, and cruel. But just look around you, there is so much beauty in this truth. And yet you still look away. And you waste all your time alone in your head. Don't deny your desires. Hell is the real paradise. And we, my friend, are in paradise! Don't look away, Miroku!

Why won't human emotions, not even my own, work out the way we want?
I'll leave tomorrow's problems to tomorrow's me.
A dream? A future? Stop going on about other people's futures when you haven't even decided your own!
Ruling over death means ruling over life. Death is the climax of life. To have the best death, you must honor life.
Pretending to get along is just hypocritical. If you don't like me, that's fine. People are free to like and hate what they want.
Don't act because something is interesting, but act because you want to find something more interesting! In this world, there are so much interesting things. Do something that you don't want to do, you don't have even a second for it.
I'm sure that things that are truly fun can't be compared. Back then, now, and from now on, in the time you spend with others, lots of small fun things are born and disappear. If you are able to capture each of them, you'll never run out of fun things. Forever and ever. And here's one point of advice. Thinking that now is fun is what makes it the most fun.
I'm just a guy who's a hero for fun.
In this world, there's no such thing as "failure" in the first place. The one who knows the "ways to win" more than anyone is also the one who's experienced the most "mistakes". In other words... You could say "failure" is equal to "success"... Couldn't you?
Me? A liar? That's almost hurtful. I just don't feel like telling the whole truth.
Everyone dies eventually, whether they have power or not. That's why you need to think about what you'll accomplish while you're alive. Let’s say I posed this question to you: “Can all human souls be bought with money or not?” Now remember, the keyword here is “all”.
