“It's a cruel and random world, but the chaos is all so beautiful.”
Hiromu Arakawa

“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.”
Hiromu Arakawa, Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 1

“Humankind cannot gain something without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. This is Alchemy's First Law of Equivalent Exchange. In those days, we really believed that to be the world's one, and only, truth.”
Hiromu Arakawa, Fullmetal Alchemist, Vol. 1
