"The difference between machine and human is that machines do things under calculation of profit, they give up and run away in the face of danger.

"Not me. I once said I observed you from my obeservation point in the End of Time. I was not lying. I saw everything you did as a child. I saw everything I had or ever will do. I saw my death, I saw everything. I saw the missles crash down on the world. I saw the world die. I saw Marle die. I saw everything. I saw Lavos die. I knew - from the beggining - that you would destroy Lavos. I saw everything I would do. What I saw was what even tually happened, in every case. I reliazed something Magus - that what was observed, had to be. I observed the motions of the Shadows. I had no choice. Because I saw, I did, and because I did, I saw. A neat little paradox that was resolved by my being. It had to be, or time itself would unravel. What must be, what must be, is. Do you understand?"

"For having to live in a place like this when he doesn't have to," replied Cole, coldly.
"Is that all?" demanded Morrigan. "You know, it's not like he's missing anything. It's not like he actually knows about the outside and is missing it. He doesn't know."

"The Story of Magus Ch. 18" by ZealPropht - Suggested by Minmei:

~Magus to Ozzie

"The Story of Magus Ch. 18" by ZealPropht - Suggested by The Dark Requiem:
"It is the curse of the weak to destroy what they don't comprehend because the unknown frightens them. Rather like a child that is afraid of monsters under the bed but is afraid to light a candle and explore if there is anything really there at all. Instead they lay there all night, shivering in dread, for no other reason but stupidity and cowardice. They don't face their fears because they don't want to understand the nature behind them. They don't want to see their own failings. They have to demolish everything that makes them nervous or frightened because it makes them feel big and powerful when in reality, they are nothing more than ants."
- Janus

"The Story of Magus Ch. 18" by ZealPropht - Suggested by Minmei:
