“Perhaps it's impossible to wear an identity without becoming what you pretend to be.”
Orson Scott Card, Ender's Game

“In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him. I think it’s impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves. And then, in that very moment when I love them.... I destroy them.”

“If you try and lose then it isn't your fault. But if you don't try and we lose, then it's all your fault.”
Orson Scott Card, Ender's Game
