Quotes from "Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood"

Even when our eyes are closed, there's a whole world out there, that lives outside of ourselves and our dreams.

[To Envy] Now I see. You're Jealous. You're jealous of humans, aren't you? According to you, humans are supposed to be a lot weaker than Homunculi.

You want to bring back someone that you've lost. You might want money. Maybe you want women. Or, you might want to protect the world. These are all common things people want.
