If all you do is feed your dog, you'll get your hand bitten eventually. Let him out for a walk every once in a while.
A romance won't keep itself going forever. Eventually, you lose that all-important spark. Love has to be nurtured if it's going to last. If you want to be with someone forever, you need to put effort into the relationship... Great, now I'm talking cliches.
If you've got energy to spend on feeling guilty, then use it to show your gratitude.
Compared to failing without even trying, I'd rather take action, even at the risk of a mistake.
No matter what you're doing, the most essential thing is to not give up. Fail as many times as it takes. Keep trying persistantly untill you can call yourself 'avarage'. If you can collect a nice group of avarage-level skills, that's already above-avarage. You've created your own sort of 'talent'.
There are only two times when a man can cry in public: when he loses his wallet and when his mother dies. And even if you cry in private, there's a severe restriction. Shed tears for others. The only thing you should be shedding for yourself is sweat. Remember that.
Skilled only at making excuses that justify nothing, he is someone whose life has no value. The same goes for me. I have the right to stop you because I'm just like you.
To ensure that all I've done won't end up a lie. I don't want to talk big game to people, then run away when it matters the most. This is a wall I must overcome on my own. If there's anything I want to change, I have to change myself. If I must become evil to defeat evil, I will become the devil himself. That's all to it.
A little bit of trouble keeps life from being boring.
They say you never know when a bullet you fired in battle will find its way back to you.
This is something my master used to say. "Kids who are too obedient and never think of themselves are the hardest to watch."
At that point in my life, I couldn't find any value in anything. I was a brat who may as well be dead.
Colors and lies both get blacker as you add more. Add enough red, and it'll turn black too.
At this point, no matter how I change, the things I've lost won't come back.
According to my master, when you're a kid, just being a fast runner makes you popular. In middle school, it's holding your own in a fight. After that, brains make you popular. Her point seemed to be, "Run fast, hit hard, and read books."
Lies are like colours. The more you pile up, the blacker things get.
Life comes at a cost. Wouldn’t it be arrogant to die before you’ve repaid that debt?
In this world, when you face forward, that's the future. When you look back, it's a memory. And if you clip a part of it out, that becomes a story.
Being indebted to someone is nothing to be ashamed of. Not repaying that debt is. I was feeling down, but you distracted me by subjecting me to your selfish whims. There are times when selfishness can save a person.
