"A lesson without pain is meaningless.
You cannot gain something without sacrificing something in return.
But once you have overcome it and made it your own...
You will gain an irreplaceable fullmetal heart."
Let's say you drink too much strawberry milk, and have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.
But it's cold outside your bed.
You don't want to get up, but the urge to urinate is just too strong!
You make up your mind to go!
You run to the bathroom, stand in front of the toilet, and let loose!
You think that all your life has led to this moment!
But then you realize!
It isn't the bathroom, you're still in bed!
That feeling of lukewarm wetness spreads like wildfire!
But you don't stop! You can't stop!
That's what I'm talking about!
THAT'S THE TRUTH OF THE STRAWBERRY MILK!
DO YOU GET IT?!"
"Isn't it odd how much fatter a book gets when youve read it a few times? As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells....and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower... both strange and familiar."

"...It was their fate.
...the two will be reunited?
Even if that is God's will...
I'll crush it.
I'll dare to move against God himself."
--Tsuruga Ren, Skip Beat!
"Never take life too seriously; after all, no one gets out of it alive."
"You know, the [Sorcerer's] Stone was really not such a wonderful thing. As much money and life as you could want! The two things most human beings would choose above all - the trouble is, humans do have a knack of choosing precisely those things that are worst for them."
--Dumbledore, The Sorcerer's Stone
"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."
"Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages."
