One of the most impressionable quotes I’ve come across, comes rather surprisingly from a video game called “Vagrant Story“.
The body is but a vessel for the soul,
a puppet which bends to the soul’s tyranny.
And lo, the body is not eternal,
for it must feed on the flesh of others,
lest it return to the dust from whence it came.
Therefore must the soul deceive, despise and murder men.
Maybe it is not so surprising, if you consider the fact that this game was one of Squaresoft’s more ambitious and experimental works, with an especially dark and mature theme.
I should do a review of the game sometime… If I can ever find the time for it.
