Hey, what else could you possibly need? Now, tell me, how do soccer or basketball prepare you to survive in the wild, hm?"

We should come up into the light soon before we suffocate."

She couldn't possibly be."

"I will always love you."Then I plunged the stake into his chest.It wasn't as precise a blow as I would have liked, not with the skilled way he was dodging. I struggled to get the stake in deep enough to his heart, unsure if I could do it from this angle. Then, his struggles stopped.

36. "I know women are taught by other women that they must never admit the full truth to a man. But the highest form of affection is based on full sincerity on both sides. Not being men, these women don't know that in looking back on those he has had tender relations with, a man's heart returns closest to her who was the soul of truth in her conduct. The better class of man, even if caught by airy affectations of dodging and parrying, is not retained by them. A Nemesis attends the woman who plays the game of elusiveness too often, in the utter contempt for her that, sooner or later, her old admirers feel; under which they allow her to go unlamented to her grave."
Author: Thomas Hardy

When you're attacking, think "I will cut you!"--Urahara Kisuke"

Back one was always hailed to the letter 'I."
Author: Virginia Woolf
