Makoto Yukimura quotes
Askeladd: What a sight this is. A man, slave to gold, holds a whip and beats the slave he bought with that gold as if to claim he is the master. He just doesn't see it for himself. Every living human being is a slave to something.
Thors: Listen to me, Thorfinn. You have no enemies. No one has any enemies. There is no one that you should hurt.
Sverkel: Too much wealth brings disaster. When you increase your wealth, you fear losing it. To ease that fear, you spend money to make more of it. The idiot boy doesn't realize how empty it all is.
Thorfinn: Who negotiates for peace by beating a man? I've only just met you today. We don't know each other, or bear each other any grudge. Why should we have to beat one another? It's foolishness.
Einar: If you want fields so badly, till them yourself. I bet you've never held a hoe in your life. Try making your own field of crops. Then maybe you'll understand firsthand what a terrible thing it is to have that stolen from you.
Thorfinn: Your power saves many people and torments a few. That is what it does. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I have no right to criticize your absurdity. So all I can do...is run. To a place where your power cannot reach.
Canute: You let yourself be beaten to a pulp, just so you could stand before an emperor and admonish him to his face?
Thorfinn: This is a hunt. The strong hunt the weak. It's a fact of life. That's how every living thing struggles to survive. You were weaker than me. So you got hunted. If you want to hate anything, hate your own weakness. I am the hunter and you are the hunted. It's just as simple as that.
