However little strength I'm capable of, I'll do everything humanly possible to protect the people I love, and in turn, they will protect the ones they love. It seems like the least we tiny humans can do for each other.

Comment 

Greed may not be good, but it's not so bad either. You humans think greed is just for money or power, but everyone wants something they can't have.

I'm not short, I just live in a big world.

Men are not men on the battlefield. We turn into some other creature. You can do the cruelest things - it doesn't even matter if it's an order or not. To protect yourself, your mind shuts out any emotions you have. It's like a steel door. But once the war is over, you can't keep it closed forever.

Edward Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist
 
Comment 

On the day we left, we burned down the family home and all the familiar things inside. Because some memories aren't meant to leave traces.

Even when our eyes are closed, there's a whole world out there that lives outside ourselves and our dreams.

Nothing's perfect, The world's not perfect, but it's there for us, trying the best it can. That's what makes it so damn beautiful.

You have to figure it out. Stand up and walk. Keep moving forward. You've got two good legs. So get up and use them. You're strong enough to make your own path.

Maybe life has no equal trade, maybe you can give up all you got, and get nothing back. Even If I can’t prove it’s true, I have to try, for your sake, AL.

In general, men prefer to let their actions speak instead of words. When they're in pain, they don't want to burden anyone with it, not if they can help it. They don't want anyone to worry about them. That's how they are

If you ask me, there’s neither "right" or "wrong" when it comes to greed.

I have no use for a religion that's been forsaken by its own god.

Comment 

I don't know if we chose the right path, brother. But I do know this: I don't want to be in this suit anymore. I want to feel things again. It's strange. We've been right beside each other all this time. But I can't remember what your skin feels like, or how you smell.

Alphonse Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist

In order to obtain something, there must be something of equal value. It is the law of conservation in alchemy. Back then, we believed that it was the truth of the world. However, the real world isn't perfect, so there is not just a single law that governs everything that happens within it.

Alphonse Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist

If the ways of this world are based on equivalent exchange, as alchemy says, then in order to allow for a new generation to enjoy good fortune, the price that we must pay, is to carry the bodies of the dead across a river of blood.

Any man who has the brains to think and the nerve to act for the benefit of the people of the country, is considered a radical, by those who are content with stagnation and willing to endure disaster.

Okay, here's the plan: We go in, start hitting people, and see where it takes us.

I will do anything it takes to be the man she loves. I will survive this war. And when I return home, I will swallow every horrible thing I’ve done here, and I will smile when I’m with her. I swear on my life.
