Things are impossible until someone turn it possible. The point of trying on this world is that in true no one is certain of anything,because no one knows all rules,all history and all possibilities.



But on the quote i think Emiya meant that only being "good" was not enough,he had to become heartless,to use weapons and sneak atacks to survive and save people.

I think that being good is not only not enough, but also selfish. The need to keep your consciousness clean is a selfish act and someone who is able to sacrifice that can get much more done.



Then again... Who's to say what's good?

Yeah i agree,the word "good" that we commonly use is very shallow,and in true what people call "good" usually is what is on their advantage. I would say that the true meaning of the word good would be a balance between individual needs and the community needs. But when the community itself is not "good" there is no true point of reference for what should be allowed or not beyond our own conclusions.

You are reading my mind, you know. It is a scary thought that outside of our heads, there is no good or evil. Or at least that's what it seems like. Anyone can do whatever the fuck they want and it's not gonna be anything, it will just be. But I'm glad we invented those things, cause it's probably only because of them that we are able to remove the more annoying citizens and put them behind bars lol

What's the point of trying if you can't do it though?
