Quotes by Joel Shepherd  (?)

“You mean one human is good, but a hundred humans is bad?"

"Exactly. One human is just a person. A hundred humans make a society. And societies have kings, and religions and priests, and all these other things serrin completely fail to understand”
Joel Shepherd, Petrodor

“He said we're all going to die,'
'And what did you say?'
'I said that's why i'm here”
Joel Shepherd (Tracato), Tracato

“It is the way, isn't it? With humans and free thought. They only learn through terrible mistakes. Free thought does not make wisdom. Instead it creates enough space for men to commit terrible folly, from which the survivors learn through disaster.”
Joel Shepherd, Tracato
